This may seem like splitting hairs to you, but I just wanted to say that the Pyren [b]ees[/b] is not a mastiff-type, the flock-guardian type is separate in and of itself. This goes for the Kuvasz, Maremma, Komondor, Tatra and Anatolian shepherd too. Just fyi.
:wink:

My issues here:
The Czechoslovakian wolfdog and Saarloos wolfhound... They aren't really "wolf hybrids" anymore. Although they were developed by breeding wolves to dogs, they are far enough removed from the wolves to be considered a pure breed of domestic dog, and not a "hybrid."

The American Indian Dog... This is NOT a breed of dog!!! :x :evil: Please search the archives for my previous posts involving the Native American Indian dogs. It is a scam. These dogs posses neither the temperament nor the heritage that the breeders claim. I would hope that this dog could be removed entirely from the Index, it will do little more than help to perpetuate these breeders' lies. :(

i didn't look over everything really carefully, but here are some things that jumped out at me:

Alpine Daschbrake? -med sized, heavy built, coarse-coated hound
--- the correct spelling is "Alpine Dachsbracke" (dachs = badger)

Bavarian Mountain Hound?-short legged sceny hound
--- this is not a short legged breed. also known as "Bayerische Gebirgsbracke".

German Spitz -similar to small am eskimo
--- the "german spitz" comes in 5 different sizes, from the smallest, which is referred to as a pomeranian in the US, to the largest, which is also known as keeshond. from the standard, height at the withers:
a) Wolfsspitz (Keeshond): 49 cm +/- 6 cm
b) Gro

the "doodle" breeds are not yet recognized by any true breed affiliate...


you may come across another unrecognized breed, but I will fight for this one. The Golden Lab. the Seeing Eye has been trying to create this breed for years, because they want the stamina of the Lab with the gentleness of the Golden. they want the shorter hair, because the blind cant groom efficiently. Labs are more stubborn, Goldens need less work, socially, but more work grooming wise. I had one. If I could get another Alex I would take him in a heartbeat....

[quote name='CincoandDahlilasgirl']Just thought I'd say something about the ESS. You might want to put med-lg spaniel. I've seen adult ess that aren't that large.[/quote]

Me too, Mocha was a tiny lil girl. 35-40 lbs or so. Carson, on the other hand, is 52. :o :lol:

Edits are in progress: Please note that there are several misspellings and shortened names on the list. As far as breed descriptions go, I tried to make them as brief as possible just for people to get a very basic idea of breeds they may not be familiar with. Most descriptions were done off the top of my head, and due to the tedium (I worked strait through it) there will be many inconsistancies and flaws. Keep the corrections coming and be patient, if I miss something just let me know. Just keep in mind that the info here is not very important, the facts we provide on the web site is what needs to be precise.

Pyrenees- point taken, was mostly for physical description. Do these breeds have a mastiff origin or no?

Wolfdogs- realize that, it was the shortest summary I could come up with at the time.

American Indian Dog- didn't realize that-struck from the list

alpine dachsbrake- spelling noted

bavarian hound- noted, I've only ever seen one black & white photo, it looked fairly low-slung to me

german spitz- thanks, my info here was murky. should I include the 3 middle sizes as breeds?

kromfohrlander- noted. It is a general purpose farm dog right?

labradoodle- I only included this one because it is breed that was in developement for a specific purpose. noted and removed

muensterlaender- spelling noted- trying to keep description as generic as possible- i'll double check, but I'm pretty sure I have a listing for three sizes

poodle- keeping in with original breed purpose- I don't think it's confuse anyone

viszla- noted: neglected to mention

landseer- should there be two seperate breeds, or two types of the same breed?

english springer- lack of continuity. meant to be a large variety of spaniel, rather than large sized dog- there are many of this particular inconinuity if you look search enough

golden lab- similar in purpose to labradoodle

Hey Canis!
No, the flock guardians do not have a mastiff ancestry. A good way to describe them, especially the Pyr, is "of moderate bone", whereas the Mastiff types are "of heavy bone". Once you put photos next to each other you will see what I mean. Flock guardians are one of the four ancient 'types" of dogs, the others are mastiff, spitz and sighthound.
I think this is a brilliant idea though, and your list is pretty exhaustive. If I can answer any more questions about my beloved white bears, please let me know asap! :D

back again!
The Tatra has a long Polish name but is referred to here in the U.S. as the "Polish Tatra Sheepdog".
The Akbash is actually a color variation of the Anatolian Shepherd, "Akbash" meaning white.
I would not use the term "kuvasz-like". Countries of origin for the flock guardians are as follows:
Pyr-France
Maremma-Italy
Kuvasz-Hungary
Tatra-Poland
Anatolian-Turkey
Thanks!

That's strictly for the purpose of giving folks unfamiliar with the breeds something to compare with visually.

bavarian hound- noted, I've only ever seen one black & white photo, it looked fairly low-slung to me
--- actually it's the "alpine dachsbracke" that's the shorter legged breed. i just looked up the correct english name and it is actually "Bavarian Mountain Scenthound"

german spitz- thanks, my info here was murky. should I include the 3 middle sizes as breeds?
--- i guess they aren't as much separate "breeds" as varieties. hard to describe. see below:

--- just like dachshunds come in 3 different sizes (standard, miniature and "rabbit dachshund") which are only distinguished by chest circumference (measured at a minimum age of 15 months) and aren't really different breeds. measurements are over 35cm for the standard dachshund, over 30 and up to 35cm for the miniature and 30cm and below for the "rabbit dachshund". this separation into 3 varieties is recognized by the FCI but not by US kennel clubs. also note, per the FCI standard the maximum allowed weight is about 19.8 pounds while the AKC standard lists "usually between 16 and 32 pounds". good grief, i don't see that kind of dog going down a badger or fox hole. but enough of that before i get pissed off again at how they ruined my breed. lol

kromfohrlander- noted. It is a general purpose farm dog right?
--- it is actually described in the breed standard as a "house and companion dog". listed in the FCI nomenclature in section 9 "companion and toy dogs", even tho it is probably the largest breed in this group (between 38cm and 46cm at the withers).

muensterlaender- spelling noted- trying to keep description as generic as possible- i'll double check, but I'm pretty sure I have a listing for three sizes
--- that would really be news to me. :)
grosser muensterlaender (large): males 60 to 65cm at the withers, females 58 to 63 cm. FCI group 7 (pointing dogs), section 1 (continental pointing dogs), 102
kleiner muensterlaender (small): males 52-56cm, females 50-54cm, FCI group 7, section 1, 118

I noticed that the Doberman is listed as a large version of the German pinshcer, basically. Then, the German pinscher is listed as a terrier.

Dobermans aren't terriers. I'm sure of a good way to describe then other than they are a medium sized, shorthaired guarding breed.

This is quite an undertaking, stick with it! :D

I want to back the truck up here a minute. My origional intent for this thread was to show a list of breeds we would be covering on the website, as well as showing who was working on what particular breeds. I know there are alot of inaccuracies provided in the info for each breed, that's ok as this is not info we are going to be publishing on the website. The description is pretty much there to give someone a very basic idea of what a dog looks like visually if they aren't familiar with the breed.

So, that said, are there any other breeds we need to include or exclude from the list? Also pipe up if there are any particular breeds you want to work on. I will be adding names shortly and looking back on the other thread for those who've alreedy expressed a desire to work on certain breeds.

I've added the names of those whos have specifically stated they'd be interested in writing about specific breeds. You can find the names or initials in front of the breed names.

Rowie, you might be interested in doing the Sloughi as well since they are very similiar. I'm not sure what the popular opinion is anymore regarding whether or not they ARE the short-coated variety of Saluki, or if they are a diffrent breed altogether. You also may want to look at the Caravan Hound (if it's worth doing), it's very similar to the Saluki, and is probably in fact only a regional variety of that breed.
