Bull Terrier

Walter on da porch.


Also known as the English Bulldog or the British Bulldog.


These are simply the result of bulldogs + mastiffs.

Cairn Terrier

Toto from Wizard of Oz.


Most of the world thinks that there are two kinds of Akita. On the left we have the American Akita (or just Akita) and on the right, the Japanese Akita (Akita Inu). However, the US considers them to be the same breed, so we are rolling with that.

Canaan Dog

Too many a's in this name.

Alaskan Malamute

An Arctic sled dog similar to the Husky, except these guys are considerably bigger.

American Bulldog

Descendants of the now extinct Old English Bulldog, they were brought to America in the 1800's by immigrants for their usefulness when it came to guarding farms, herding, and catching feral animals. A very American story indeed.

American English Coonhound

Also called the Redtick Coonhound. While traditionally called the English Coonhound, America decided "you know what? screw it lets just put the word 'American' in the name." these energetic things have the power of climbing up trees!

American Eskimo Dog

This little thing comes in three little sizes. Standard, miniature, and toy.

American Foxhound

Cousin to the English Foxhound, they were arguably the first breed developed in the US. Also, George Washington had 36. Lot of daily pickup I would imagine.

American Hairless Terrier

These guys can come in either the hairless or short coated variety. Make sure to apply sunscreen or clothes if you bring a hairless one to the beach though, no joke.

Cane Corso

The plural for this is Cani Corsi.

American Leopard Hound

Their feet are known to never get sore! Also called the American Leopard, American Cur, and the American Leopard Cur. (I know).

American Staffordshire Terrier

Also called the Amstaff. A confusing name, considering that Staffordshire is a city in England.

Cirneco dell'Etna

Pronounced cheer-nec-ko

Clumber Spaniel

Look at this cute little thing. I have no comment.

Cocker Spaniel

The smallest sporting breed!


There are two variants of Collie. Rough and smooth! Famous for being Lassie.

Coton de Tulear

Croation Sheepdog

Lookin curly.

Curly Coated Retriever

A breed where once you've read the name, you know what it is...

Czechoslovakian Vlcak

Also called the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog. Thank god.

American Water Spaniel

While it is the state dog of Wisconsin, it is quite a rare breed.

Anatolian Shepherd Dog

A Turkish breed. They are famous for their self reliance. In the past they would never be fed by their owners, and would catch their own food. Give em food though it'll be nice.

Appenzeller Sennenhund

These guys are from Switzerland. One of the four "Sennenhund" breeds which loosely translates to dairy "farmer's dog". This one is from the Appenzell region of Switzerland. Those Swiss and their words I tell you.

Australian Cattle Dog

The "ACD", "Cattle Dog", "Red Heeler", or "Blue Heeler" has a lot of names. The white in their fur can make them look blue or red, despite them really being black or brown. "Heeler" refers to the practice of nipping at the heels of herded animals that step out of line.

Australian Kelpie

There are two variants of Kelpie. The Show Kelpie, as seen on the bottom, goes to shows and is bred to look pretty. The Working Kelpie, as seen on the top, actually roles up it's sleeves and is bred to be an efficient worker for farmers. Basically, like the two types of human. Actually that doesn't make sense nevermind.

Australian Shepherd

This pretty thing is called an "Aussie" which is confusing because there are other dogs with the word "Australian" in the name. Furthermore, they were developed in the United States. Question for whoever names these things: What's your freaking problem?

Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog

Kind of like an Australian Cattle Dog with a severe lack of tale. This one came from breeding between herding dogs and the Australian Dingo. Crikey, it doesn't get much more Australian than that!

Australian Terrier

One of the smallest Terriers, it was the first Australian breed recognized in Australia.


From West Africa, it is super duper tall and skinny. Very aerodynamic.


A French breed, and the name comes from the French word for Beard which is "barbe". Come on Barbet lets go Barbet.


The African Barkless Dog. This baby doesn't bark. It will instead make a bunch of random unidentifiable sounds. Seriously.

Basset Fauve de Bretagne

Woah. That's a French name for sure. It means "Rather Low Fawn of Brittany". Good thing I took French in high school. I google translated it but still.

Basset Hound

Small versions of the Bloodhound, which it is descended from. It has the bloodhound's funny little saggy face and skin. Second most accurate nose next to the Bloodhound. I say Bloodhound a lot.

Bavarian Mountain Scent Hound

These guys have a long name and a noticeable tan line.


Very popular breed. A small version of the foxhound. "Beagling" is the act of hunting hare, which is something Beagles are coincidentally bred to do.

Bearded Collie

Also known as the "Beardie". That's based.


Relatively unknown outside of France. Maybe that will change with you ;-)

Bedlington Terrier

Known for having a funny little face and nose. And having a very British name.

Belgian Laekenois

Pronounced Belgian "Lake enn wah". Notice the funny curly hair.

Belgian Sheepdog

This thing look like Batman not a sheep.

Belgian Turverun

Sometimes spelled Turveuren. For short you can call them a Terv. Hmm. Not sure if I like it. Terv.

Bergamasco Sheepdog

Fun fact: They have extremely long eyelashes to keep hair out of their eyes.

Berger Picard

Notice the big ears. Also notice the most amazing and most French dog breed name there ever was. It makes me think of Star Trek and fast food so its my thing.

Bernese Mountain Dog

Also known as "Berner Sennenhund" or just Berner". One of the four Swiss Sennenhunds.

Bichon Frise

One of those dogs that literally looks like a toy. A very French name too.

Biewer Terrier

Pronounced Bee-Vare. Closely related to the Yorkshire Terrier. Originally called the German Yorkshire Terrier.

Black and Tan Coonhound

Not only can it hunt for raccoons, but they have the courage to hunt for deer, wolves, cougars, and even bears. I don't even know if it can defeat those but it has the courage to.

Black Russian Terrier

Also known as the Chornyi Terrier, which is just Russian for black. This breed is actually not a Terrier, but a Working breed.


The king of saggy faces. Also has an inhuman sense of smell estimated to be 1000 times better than that of a human.

Bluetick Coonhound

Notorious for having an icy cold nose, one of the few breeds that have that. Also isn't actually blue, but is just black and white to give the illusion of blue.


Boerboel is South African for "farm dog". There are legends that they were able to kill lions, however this is unlikely. Pronounced as Bore Bowl. Interesting.

Bohemian Shepherd

Is this the real life? I believe so. This one is also called a Chodenhund. Yeah let's stick with Bohemian Shepherd.


Developed in Bologna, Italy. Want to know how to pronounce it? It's not baloney. It's bowlin niece.

Usually considered to be the smartest dog of all time.

Border Terrier

Bred to have long legs for keeping up a good speed, but also bred to be small to fit into fox holes to flush them out.

Boston Terrier

Also called the American Gentleman. These little ones are famous for their large ears.

Bouvier des Flandres

Obvious Simpsons joke opportunities. French for "cow herder of flanders".


Cousin to Bulldog types. Used to be used in dogfights. Sort of like if you gave a Boston Terrier a mushroom from Mario.

Boykin Spaniel

I'm Boykin here! Boyk! Boyk! Boyk! This guys came from South Carolina.

Bracco Italiano

Also known as the Italian Pointer. There are paintings of it from the 4th century BC. Which is strange because I'm pretty sure they can only live for like 10 years.

Braque du Bourbonnais

Also known as the Bourbonnais Pointer. It was first brought to America from France in 1988.

Chinese Crested

Sometimes said to be the ugliest breed of them all. Not sure if I agree.

Chinese Sharpei

Aka old wrinkle face.


Chinook is the Inuit word for warm winter winds. How cute.

Cardigan Welsh Corgi

The dark version of the Pembroke Corgi.

Chow Chow

Ciao ciao.

Carolina Dog

Quite possibly the most boring name of a dog breed ever.

Catahoula Leopard Dog

The word catahoula is of Choctaw origin and is translated to mean “sacred lake.” Not that I know what Choctaw is.
