Description
With over 200,000 copies sold to date, everyone agrees that "the 'ultimate' in the subtitle is not an exaggeration" ( Minneapolis Star Tribune ). Legacy of the Dog has been established as the reference book for potential dog owners, breeders, and people who are just plain crazy for dogs. Revised and updated, with many new breeds rarely seen outside their country of origin, it is an invaluable reference. Seven standard categories are covered, with each breed shown alphabetically within, for a total of 195 breeds. Each breed's description includes a brief history, key characteristics, care and exercise requirements, and tips on training puppies. Tetsu Yamazaki's photographs are exceptional not only for their careful emphasis on the particularity of the different breeds, but also for capturing the individual spirit of each dog. A treasure trove of photography and a wealth of information, here's a book for canine owners guaranteed to be the most dog-eared one on the shelf.
