10 dog breeds and their initial breeding

Portuguese Water Dog

I think this will be the ideal place to start our list.

The Portuguese Water Dog is a fascinating breed. Almost every dog ​​(except for the next breed on this list) is raised to help humans, mainly for foraging.

It is not clear when the Portuguese Water Dog was first bred, but the first written evidence we have dates back to 1297. During this period, people saw Portuguese water dogs on the coast of Portugal, where fishermen rewarded them for various reasons: companionship, guards, and most importantly, as helpful little fishermen. If fishermen need to retrieve lost nets or fishing tackle, Porties will gladly jump into the water and bring back the lost cargo. They will also help put the fish in the fishermen’s nets.

As you might expect, an all-around dog like the Portuguese Water Dog, this breed is really great, and it’s also a helpful learner. The modern PWG dates back to the exact date when the first garbage was born in Algarbiorum Kennels, Portugal, on May 1, 1937. The United States will have to wait another 30 years to see this long-established breed.


Unlike most breeds on the list, pugs are specially bred as pets. The pug originated in ancient China and was bred as a companion to the royal family. Pugs are protected and carefully cared for, and are regarded as a status symbol in China. Finally, they entered Europe in the 16th century day Century and later went to North America, where they continued to breed as companions.


The Dalmatian was once regarded as a status symbol, but its role has changed dramatically throughout history.

The Dalmatian was originally used as a war dog to guard the Dalmatian border (one of the four historical regions in Croatia). When the Dalmatians traveled to England, they were raised to guard horses and carriages. The Dalmatians trot with the coach and earned the nickname “Spotted Coach Dog”.

In 1890, the first Dalmatian club was established in England, and the standard for this breed became the official name. Modern Dalmatians are loving, loyal, and intelligent people.


Looking at the cute Pomeranian Pomeranian today, I was shocked to learn that they were originally bred as sled dogs when they were 16 years old day century. At that time, Pomeranians were much older than they are today.

Those who have spent time in Pomerania will tell you that the behavior of this breed is greater than it actually is. For most Chihuahuas, this also seems to be true, so it may just be small dog syndrome, or it may be that Pomeranians still think they are large sled dogs.

These days, Pomeranians have become perfect pen dogs. They are very smart, very happy to get along with their owners, and at the same time have always been favorites.

German Shepherd

Didn’t you know that the German Shepherd is bred on the sheep? However, there are many stories about how the German Shepherd was born.

In the 1800s, the German Shepherd crossed with many different dogs, creating a breed that was smart, fast, well-built, and had a strong sense of smell.

Due to the extensive crossbreeding, there are various shepherd dogs, but when participating in the dog show in 1899, Max von Stephanitz identified a dog that we call the German Shepherd today. He believes that you should have a dog to work with. This dog embodies the wisdom, strength, and obedience that he considers being a perfect working dog.

Max von Stephanitz (Max von Stephanitz) is also a member of this association, whose mission is to regulate German dog breeds. After buying a new dog, von Stephanitz announced that this was the first real German Shepherd, and when the association added it to their breed register, it officially became an official dog.

The German Shepherd will continue to help the Americans in World War II. They are also usually regarded as police dogs. So thank you, and congratulations to Max von Stephanitz for establishing one of the most popular job varieties today.

Welsh Corgi Pictures

Two types of Corgi: Pembroke (Pembroke), which usually has no tail, and Cardigan (Cardigan), were originally used to raise cattle.

The cute little corgi is a herder. When I read it for the first time, it didn’t make much sense to me, but when you imagine those little guys running and holding the heel of the cow, they all made a click.


The Sheepdog family includes a group of herders, including Australian Cattle Dogs, Shetland Sheepdogs, and Border Collies. It is believed that the shepherd dog originated in northern England and Scotland and has excellent abilities to herd sheep, cattle, and ducks.

Great Dane

The Great Dane has been present in various forms for thousands of years, throughout Egypt, Europe, and China. Recently, Great Danes bred in Europe were bred to hunt wild boars. Killing a wild boar means facing an extremely dangerous animal, so only the strongest hunting dog can knock it down. The tall and powerful Great Dane is the only dog ​​in Europe that can successfully hunt wild boars, and the German emperor can take away hundreds of Danes in one hunt.

Fortunately, since wild boar hunting is a thing of the past, the modern Great Dane has been bred into a kinder, more aggressive dog.

Rhodesian Ridgeback

The sound of Rhodesian Ridgeback is as ferocious as its breeding because these dogs were originally bred to hunt lions and other large animals in South Africa.

Today Rhodesian Ridgebacks still have a strong desire to chase their prey, and they show more independence than other dogs. They protect their masters vigorously and have affection for people they trust.

Saint Bernard

The history of this breed began around 1050 when an Augustin monk named St. Bernard established a hospice and monastery in what is now called the Great St. Bernard Pass. The Greater Saint Bernard Pass is located at an altitude of 8,000 feet and is a 49-mile route through the Western Alps.

In the late 1600s, the monks at the Grand Saint Bernard Hospice Hospital brought dogs that were descendants of the dog, and they became guard dogs and companions. About 100 years later, these dogs began to be used to accompany travelers and were very useful for clearing snow trails. Then it was discovered that these dogs have a good sense of smell, and how useful they are for finding lost travelers buried in the snow. The St. Bernards are even smart enough that when they spot a lost traveler, they will lie on them to keep warm until help arrives.

For the next 150 years, St. Bernard sparkled and became a rescue dog, saving more than 2,000 lives before the last documented restoration mission in 1897.

The bottom line of dog breeds

These dogs are bred for specific purposes and often exhibit specific characteristics, but each dog is unique, and you should never judge it by its breed. Every dog ​​will go through its own life course, which will shape who they will be in the future. Regardless of the breed, your dog is a person with a unique personality.
