Dogs are the most popular pets. Only cats can compete with them. Dogs have lived next to humans for centuries, never getting tired of proving their loyalty and love to them. All the variety of breeds can be divided into Aboriginal – appeared by natural selection, and cultural – bred by breeders. Aboriginal species are quite independent, able to make independent decisions, and do not respond very well to training, while specially created breeds are more human-oriented and tend to learn quickly. Depending on what kind of work the dog is able to perform, there are service, hunting, guard, fighting, Shepherd, decorative breeds. It is difficult to overestimate the help of these animals to people, especially since many of them become loyal companions, ready to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the owner. And humanity knows how to be grateful: movies are made about dogs, books are dedicated to them, and monuments are erected. A striking example was the film "Hachiko: the most loyal friend", based on the true story of an Akita inu dog. The melodrama inspired millions of people-after watching it, probably everyone wanted to get a similar dog.
Connoisseurs of dogs as a cultural heritage of different countries can consider Ukrainian, Japanese, German, English, American, Chinese and French breeds.
All dog breeds can be classified by size. Traditionally, breeds are divided into small, medium and large. At the same time, the group of small pets includes TOI, dwarf and small breeds, and large dogs include large and giant individuals. Size is one of the main criteria for whether a dog is suitable for an apartment. But not the only one: the character of the pet is no less important.
