This volume is an introduction to "man's best friend". Each entry in the book includes: a photograph and description of the breed; details on size, lifespan and identifying features; and notes on the breed's character and suitability as a pet.

A section on dog trivia and a glossary of appropriate terms complete this easy-to-use guide.
