Overview

Have you ever wondered which dogs make the best house pets? How the Dalmatian got its name? Why the German Shepherd was once referred to as the Alsatian? Winner of the Association of Medical Illustrators Award of Excellence, this comprehensive guide to 35 of the most popular dogs will show you all you need to know about man's best friend, including 18 complete anatomical illustrations and 35 hand-illustrated breed drawings.

Illustrations of the skeletal system, the muscular system and the major internal organs are labeled with current terminology. Five different breeds
from the seven major canine classes (as recognized by the American Kennel Club) are beautifully illustrated and rendered, and information on breed
group, history, and social skill is also included. A complete list of all of the dogs within each canine class can be found at the back of the book.

Utilizing the newest printing technology - the stochastic tone process - these hand-illustrated drawings are nearly life-like in their detail.
Printed in four colors on the highest quality paper available, this book offers images unlike any other before it.
