Popular Dog Breeds: Introduction

Popular Dog Breeds


There are over 300 different purebred dog breeds, such as the poodle, the french bulldog, the great dane, the pug, and many many others. But that is not even counting mixed dog breeds, such as labradoodles, golden doodlesmaltipoos, and puggles.

A majority of mixed dog breeds have part poodle, because people think that they will get a *hypoallergenic dog. For example to make a labradoodle you need poodle and labrador DNA in the dog to consider it a labradoodle. The labrador is a shedding dog while the poodle is *hypoallergenic, so when you cross them the puppies **should turn out *hypoallergenic. Many people love poodles or poodle mixes because they are usually *hypoallergenic.

If you are allergic to dogs but you want one you should consider a poodle mix, or a poodle.

We will be writing about the most popular dog breeds, and not just the purebreds, but the known mixes, and maybe even a few mutts too.

Each post will be titled for example: Popular Dog Breeds: French Bulldog

Thanks for reading this post! We hope you enjoy our popular dog breeds posts.


*Dogs that are hypoallergenic still shed dandruff.
**If the dog is mixed with many other dog breeds then it may be hard for the poodle gene to be “seen” in the dog.  Because it is cross with many many other dogs breeds the poodle gene may be lost in the dogs DNA; therefore the dog will probably not be hypoallergenic.

Adopt Don’t Shop!

According to the Humane Society of the U.S.,

“Each year, 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few people consider adoption when looking for a pet.

The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. When you adopt, you save a loving animal by making them part of your family and open up shelter space for another animal who might desperately need it.”

That’s why I have created a list of 6 reasons why you should adopt instead of shop.

You may think that all of the dogs in shelters are mutts but according to the MSPCA 1/3 of dogs in shelters are purebred.

6 reasons to adopt a pet:

  • You saved a dogs life by adopting it
  • You raise awareness to shelters by adopting from one
  • Pets at shelters are usually a lower cost than pets in pet shops
  • You are fighting puppy mills
    • According to the Humane Society of the U.S.,”If you buy a dog from a pet store,online seller or flea market, you’re almost certainly getting a dog from a puppy mill.Puppy mills are factory-style breeding facilities that put profit above the welfare of dogs. Animals from puppy mills are housed in shockingly poor conditions with improper medical care, and are often very sick and behaviorally troubled as a result. The moms of these puppies are kept in cages to be bred over and over for years, without human companionship and with little hope of ever joining a family. And after they’re no longer profitable, breeding dogs are simply discarded—either killed, abandoned or sold at auction.These puppy mills continue to stay in business through deceptive tactics — their customers are unsuspecting consumers who shop in pet stores, over the Internet or through classified ads. Puppy mills will continue to operate until people stop supporting them. By adopting a pet, you can be certain you aren’t giving them a dime.”
  • You help an animal shelter open up a space for other homeless animals
    According to http://list25.com/25-reasons-to-adopt-and-not-shop/

“The role of animal shelters is to provide a shelter for homeless animals. This means that when you adopt an animal from one of these shelters, you help provide a home for that animal while at the same time opening up space for another homeless animal.”

  • A majority of “Pre-owned”dogs are already house trained
    • When you adopt a dog they are usually already house trained, which usually means no extra house training will be needed.

Oh Tiny Heart (OTH) is an online dog store where you can buy your pup a cute and stylish scarf. They also sell leashes and collars.

The Scarves

Photos by Oh Tiny Heart

OTH scarves come in all different colors and patterns. The designs are very unique.

I ordered a blue one called the ROBIN (yes I know I don’t have a dog yet, but still it was too cute and pretty not to purchase.)

The price for one scarf is between 19 to 48 dollars depending on which one you choose. There is free shipping in the US for orders over $150. Through it is a bit pricey the scarves are high quality, limited, and take time to make even through they are sewn with a machine. The handmade fringe ones are usually more money because that takes even more time.

The Collars and Leashes

Collars are $42, and leashes are $58.

All of there products are high quality, and beautiful.

Why I think non filtered photos are better

I like my photos to be natural. On my 3 Instagram accounts thetweendogistelittlelou, and Maltipoo_of_Manhattan I have only used filters or edited my photos a few times. 

Why?

Because I like to work off of natural light. Photos that are taken with a natural essence cannot really keep that natural feeling if filters are included. 

I don’t think that we need to use filters in our photos to make them look good. 

A natural photo with no filters to me would seem a bit more professional than one with filter(s). This is because a photographers best friend is natural light. 

 It may be necessary to brighten the photo if it is too dark. I once used a an editor to edit Bentley the standard poodle’s photo because at the angle that I took the photo there wasn’t enough light. 

I only use filters about 3 times on my private account, twice on my thetweendogist, and I haven’t created any posts yet on the last account. 

That’s I try to stray away from filters and editing apps.
