From Publishers Weekly: Obviously an invaluable reference book, completely rewritten over three years, this handsome volume soon seduces even the average reader with any interest in man's best friend. Covering more than 420 breeds, the guide is easy to use, alphabetically arranged with ratings for a number of important breed characteristics such as compatibility with children, with other pets, grooming, and energy level. Beautiful photographs portray each breed, accompanied by origin and history, recognized by the seven foremost breed clubs and registries. Also useful are the appendices, including glossaries of canine terminology, disorders and diseases, as well as an extensive bibliography and index. An important volume for those who operate in "the world of dogs," it's also a surprising, fun, informative page turner for anyone contemplating owning a dog (or just wishing they could).
