Rizenschnauzer

Giant Schnauzer is a breed of dog with a name that has German roots. Literally: Riesenschnauzer from riesen – giant, schnauze – face. You can still find such breed names as “bearish” or “Russian schnauzer”, and if “bearish” can still be justified by the size of the dog, then “Russian” has no historical background. The Giant Schnauzer is the largest breed in the top three Schnauzers, along with the middling schnauzer (middle) and the miniature schnauzer (miniature). Giant Schnauzers possess not only a very memorable appearance, but also a wonderful character. Currently, the breed is used as a guard and companion dog, a police service dog, and a bloodhound. The history of the origin of the breed has not been fully elucidated, there are many versions, we will focus on a brief squeeze of some of them. Most likely, the birthplace of the breed is Germany, and the main purpose of the rizen was to graze sheep. Continue reading

Bobtail

According to another breed name – “Old English Shepherd”, – the homeland of the Bobtail is Great Britain. However, according to some claims, the ancestors of the bobtail – Italian cattle dogs, could be brought to the island by the ancient Romans. It is possible that the bobtail came from the cross of other dogs of English origin (bullet, briar), as well as South Russian shepherds.

The history of the breed dates back several centuries: on their canvases, English painters of the 18th century often depicted bobtail. In England, this breed was considered a shepherd, so the tail of the Bobtail was stopped: the tax for the shepherd’s dog was determined by the length of its tail. Continue reading
