Big Dog Breeds
Some dog lovers wonÂ't consider owning anything other than a big dogÂ—and here is the book written especially for them. Big dogs come in a great variety of colors, appearances, and coat types, and have many different kinds of personality. Veterinarian Dan Rice discusses Great Danes, Irish Wolfhounds, St. Bernards, and many othersÂ—40 breeds in total. He advises on health problems related to size, discusses breeding idiosyncrasies, and gives expert information on special nutrition and feeding schedules for rapidly growing breeds. Each of these profiles includes a full-color photo of the dog that is being described. There is also detailed information on the traits, origins, and lineage of many large breeds, some of them dating back thousands of years in historical records. Additional color photos complement the authorÂ's information and advice throughout the book.
