Dogs/Second Part

  1. 1. The domestic dog is a subspecies of the gray wolf. Dogs were the first domesticated animals and they have been the most widely kept working, hunting and pet animals in human history. The female word for "dog" is "bitch” and it also refers to other canine species. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped. Because of all this they have become known as “man´s best friend”. But in some cultures, however, dogs are also a source of meat. In 2001, there were estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world.
  2. 2. The Great Dane, also denoted as Grand Danois, is a German breed of domestic dog known for its giant size. The name of the breed in Germany is Deutsche Dogge (German Mastiff). They are known for their enormous bodies and great height. The Great Dane is one of the world's tallest dog breeds. Great Danes are known for seeking physical affection with their owners. This breed served as model for the cartoon character Scooby-Doo
  3. 3. I m the German Shepherd which is a large-sized breed originated in Germany. My breed is relatively new. It dates to 1899. I m part of the Herding Group. German Shepherds like me have been developed for herding sheep. Our breed is preferred for many types of work because of our intellgence, trainability and obedience. We were very useful in the World War I. Our work includes search- and-rescue, police and military roles and we sometimes act in movies as in the case of Rin Tin Tin. We re the second-most popular dogs in the United States.
  4. 4. I´m a stocky, medium-sized, shorthaired dog. I have a broad, short skull and my muzzle is square. My coat is smooth and tight-fitting. My breed has been developed in Germany. Our colors are fawn or brindled. We have strong jaws and our powerful bite is ideal for hanging on to a large prey. We were bred from the Old English Bulldog and the extinct Bullenbeisser. In spite of my appearance I´m considered the perfect company for children. My health is poor and my life span is under average. My flat face causes me breathing problems. I´m also subject to heart disease and cancer.
  5. 5. Hi everybody. I was originated in Spain but I have, actually, been developed in England. That´s why I´m called English Cocker Spaniel. In Spain we used to be gun dogs. I´m active, good-natured, sporting dog and compactly built. Outside the US, my breed is usually known simply as the Cocker Spaniel, as is the American Cocker Spaniel within the US. I´m one of the favorite dogs among all pets because I´m long-haired, my ears are long and my eyes are round and all this make me very beautiful. My colors can have more than 30 combinations. I have a problem with my ears because they are long and so they sink into the water dish and this causes otitis and bad smell. But what can I do ? Nobody is perfect.
  6. 6. My group has several breeds: Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle and Toy Poodle and there´s also a variety named Medium Poodle which is between Standard and Miniature. My breed has many coat colors. We have been bred in Germany. And then the breed was standardized in France. I´m skillful in many dog sports, including agility, obedience, tracking, and even herding.
  7. 7. I´m a herd dog breed and it´s most probable that I have been developed in the AngloScottish border which is a region for herding livestock, especially sheep. I´m acrobatic, smart and athletic. They say I´m the most intelligent of all dogs. We have become famous and this fame is partly due to the fact of our appearance in the movies in which we played the main role as Lassie. Although the name is feminine, this role has always been played by male dogs.
  8. 8. I ´m a small dog and I belong to the Terrier type. I´m named after the county in which I was developed: Yorkshire, England. I used to catch rats but humans found out I would be a good dog to keep them company. My hair is straight and smooth and it resembles human hair.
  9. 9. I belong to a very old European breed of dog. I´m a sighthound I have been bred for coursing game and after that for Greyhound racing. We have become family pets mostly because of the adoption of retired racing Greyhounds, particularly in North America. I`m gentle and intelligent. My legs are strong and long, my spine is flexible my body is slim which allows me to reach 18 meters per second race speed or 63 kilometres per hour 39 mph)
  10. 10. I come from England. Our height averages 37cm. Males in our breed weigh about 15 pounds and females weigh about 2 pouds less than males. In spite of my size, I´m a strong dog. I´m a protector of my master and a very good friend too. I´m also a good watchdog and because of my big energy one can seldom see me standing still. I don´t get along very well with other breeds. My health is good and my breed´s life span can reach 15 years, sometimes even 20.
  11. 11. I´m short legged, long-bodied and I belong to the hound family. I ´ve been bred to scent and chase badgers and other animals. I´m talking about the standard size of my family because the miniature ones were developed to hunt rabbits and other smaller preys. Nowadays my role in life is just to be a family pet. I´m very proud to say that I remain in the roll of the top ten dogs in the United States.
  12. 12. Well, I have no specific breed but I´ve been encharged of closing this presentation. I hope you have enjoyed. See you soon.
