Dogs are man’s best friend. They have been around humans for thousands of years and were domesticated from wolves in the Middle East. There are hundreds of different breeds of dog, but here are some of the most popular ones:
Labrador retriever: Labs are one of the most common breeds in the world, and for good reason. They’re known for being friendly and intelligent dogs that love to play fetch or catch Frisbees.
Poodle: Poodles come in three sizes — standard, miniature and toy — and can be either curly-coated or straight-coated. They’re known for being smart and loyal dogs who love to learn new tricks.
Dachshund: These compact dogs have long bodies with short legs, which makes them great hunters because they can fit into tight spaces while hunting rabbits or other small animals.
The dog is the most popular pet in the United States. They are loyal, loving and protective to their owners. There are many breeds of dogs available for adoption from shelters, rescues or breeders.

American Pit Bull Terrier:
The American Pit Bull Terrier is a medium-sized, solidly built, short-haired dog whose early ancestors came from England and Ireland. The breed’s early history is not well documented. The dogs were bred to engage in bull-baiting and other forms of blood sport. This activity was made illegal in 1835, and the dogs were reclassified as dangerous animals. As a result of this change in law, the breed nearly disappeared. A few individuals survived by being crossed with other breeds that had similar characteristics: namely, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the Terrier group of dogs. The American Pit Bull Terrier was recognized as a breed by The United Kennel Club (UKC) in 1898; the American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA) in 1886; the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1936; the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1944; and by United Kennel Club (UKC).
