Scottish Terrier drawing by Dog Breeds List

Scottish Terrier

Even if you don’t know a lot about Scottish Terriers, chances are you already have a pretty good mental image of this feisty little terrier.

The Scottish Terrier, or Scottie for short, is a popular and iconic breed.

With his long beard, short legs, and scruffy appearance, how could you not…

Shetland Sheepdog drawing by Dog Breeds List

Shetland Sheepdog

Let’s clear something up:

Lassie was a Collie, not a Shetland Sheepdog. And yes, the two are different.

Sure, they’re both fluffy and have wedge-shaped heads. But the Shetland Sheepdog, or Sheltie, is about half the size of his Collie cousin.

Smaller doesn’t mean dumber, though.

In fact, the smaller Sheltie is the…

Great Dane

Back in the day, the Great Dane was a powerful, deadly breed.

He was a hunter, made to go up against wild boars.

But things have changed. Today, Danes are…

Havanese dog drawing by Dog Breeds List


If you want a dog that’s made of silk, then the Havanese is about as close as you can get.

These sociable and happy pups are known for their elegant locks. But fine, silky strands aren’t the only option.

The Havanese is one of the few breeds that can totally pull off the dreadlock look.

It’s not a hairdo you’ll see every day on this pup. (The process of cording a Havanese can take up to two years!)

But if you’re up for the challenge, dreads look terrific on this breed.

Irish Setter

Irish, or Red, Setters are elegant-looking dog breeds. With their red hair, strong build, and long furnishings, you could easily assume this canine is the aristocrat of the dog world. But don’t be deceived… He may be gorgeous and graceful, but true to his red hair, this breed is a fireball. He’s goofy, crazy, and…

You probably know that the Irish Wolfhound is the tallest of all dog breeds.

But just how tall is tall?

Full-grown, Wolfhounds can reach…

Italian Greyhound drawing (misspelled) by Dog Breeds List

Italian Greyhound

At first glance, you’d probably say the Italian Greyhound was built for speed.

And you’d be right.

He’s a little athlete that loves running. In fact, he’ll sometimes have random energy spasms and just start dashing around the house for no reason.

But sprinting isn’t all the Italian Greyhound likes to do.

Despite his love for running, the breed has actually managed to dub himself with a nickname that isn’t particularly athletic.

Labrador Retriever drawing by Dog Breeds List

Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retrievers are the world’s favorite dog breed. The world, in this case, being the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK. But Labradors are everywhere. They are family pets, companion dogs, service dogs, gun dogs, and even medical diagnosis dogs. Labs are the dog picture on postcards, calendars, wrapping paper and all. Especially puppies! Grin!…

French Bulldog drawing

French Bulldog

The Frenchie has taken the world by storm.

He’s the 4th most popular breed in the U.S. and adored around the world.


Well, he’s playful, adaptable, and friendly. He’s also a bit of a clown. And a couch potato.

Plus, the breed isn’t a barker. In fact, he hardly yaps at all.

But that doesn’t mean he’s silent. He’s actually one of those special pups that has their own secret language.

You should check it out. You’ll laugh for days…
