European Dog Breeds

There are hundreds of European dog breeds. Many of these breeds originated to serve different purposes that heavily relied on the climate, the culture, or to fill a need.

Needs such as herding, hunting, small pest control, security, and search & rescue, are among the traits most dog owners would seek until the 1800s.

Throughout the Victorian period, small or “lap” dogs became in vogue, exciting breeders to focus on qualities that would accommodate indoor living.

Throughout the 1800s until today, breeds are created for a variety of different reasons that depart from necessity such as house pets or show dogs.

These traits differ from most earlier breeds’ original skillsets.
