Breed types, features, and characteristics

Hundreds of dog breeds exist worldwide; some are known, and others are not. Most breeds were created by selective breeding; in the past, each dog had a role. Breeds were created for needs such as hunting, smelling, pointing, and exposing; Large animals were divided into categories such as protection, territory protection, warning, guarding herds, gathering herds, grazing, carrying weight, pulling sleds, and more. Breed classification varies in each organization, for example, IKC, The Israeli Kennel Club Association, and FCI World Kennel Federation.
