Poodle

Presumably, the ancestors of the poodle were introduced by Arabs from North Africa to Spain and Portugal, where they began to interbreed with a Portuguese water dog and cattle dogs. Over time, the poodle got to other European countries. It was large, originally used in the hunt and pulled game from the water. In France, during the time of Louis – in the 17-18th century. – the poodle became a “royal” dog – the main favorite of courtiers. At this time, the selection of this breed was aimed at obtaining small dogs. However, the poodle was not only decorative, but also for official purposes.

Pekingese

In China, developing for a long time apart from European civilization, dogs of this breed belonged to the elite. So, the Pekingese lived with the imperial family and were revered as protectors from evil spirits. I knew that I carried dwarf dogs with me at the ceremony, according to some reports, in the sleeves of a kimono. Commoners could not be masters of the Pekingese, and their theft in order to sell or own was punishable by death. Continue reading

Maltese.

The assertion that the Maltese lapwings hail from the island of Malta is not entirely true. Maltese ancestors lived in cities located on the Mediterranean coast, and caught mice and rats. At the same time, small white dogs were known in Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, China and the Philippines. In ancient Greece, such dogs lived on the territory of the modern island of Mljet in the Adriatic Sea. The history of the breed has about two thousand years.

Parents and spaniels are supposedly relatives of Maltese. The breed got its name in the 16th century, when its representatives lived in large numbers on the island of Malta, however, white lapdogs were brought here over several centuries from the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Continue reading
