Summary
"Renowned animal behaviorist Desmond Morris has created an impressive guide to the history and variety of man's best friend. The entries are accompanied by over 500 line drawings, which express the character of the dogs represented in a way that photographs often fail to capture. Divided into four major categories -- Sporting Dogs, Livestock Dogs, Service Dogs, and Other Dogs -- each division is arranged by the specific purpose for which they were bred, and again by country of origin. For the reader interested in further research, many entries include extensive references. Morris also provides an annotated bibliography of the most important dog reference books from 1576 to the present, and two additional lists of reference books, arranged by region and by breed group. A must for dog lovers."--"The Best of the Best Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2003
