Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

This breed was named after King Charles II (can also be transliterated as Charles II), who lived in the 17th century. He was not directly involved in dog breeding, but during his reign all the doors were open for small spaniels. Since then, the appearance of the cavalier king charles spaniels has changed many times, both in the direction of reducing the size and giving a more decorative external characteristics, and in the direction of resuming the appearance, reminiscent of hunting spaniels. The greatest contribution to the selection and the formation of the exterior, known to us today, was made by the American canine dog Roswell Eldridge and the dog breeder Alice Pitt.

Basenji

ORIGIN
Basenji’s homeland is Central Africa. Genetic studies have shown the kinship between basenji and East Siberian husky, which may indicate the origin of the breed from African wolves. It is believed that the ancestors of the Basenji lived on the territory of Ancient Egypt, modern Sudan and Congo, where they were revered as sacred animals. The first found images of dogs similar to basenji belong to this period. Relatives of the Basenji are an Ibizan dog and an Egyptian hound. Basenji was used by locals for hunting and for housing protection. From the time of Ancient Egypt to the 19th century. There is no data on the further history of the breed. Probably, the selection of basenji during this period took place spontaneously. At the end of the 19th century the British found representatives of the breed in Central Africa and tried to export to England, but these individuals could not survive. At the beginning of the 20th century Basenji appeared at the Berlin Zoo, they were introduced to the UK in the 1930s, where breed standards were first adopted. Continue reading

English bulldog

ORIGIN
It is believed that the roots of the English bulldogs are common with the dog-like dogs of the Caucasus, the ancient Roman mastiffs, the Molossian Great Dane from Greece and the Celtic guard dogs. How exactly the genes of all these dogs were mixed – history is silent, but it is known that the progenitors of modern English bulldogs appeared in England in the 16th century. The name of the breed comes from the English “bull” – the bull: the breed was bred specifically for bullying dogs with dogs – a common fun for the population of England. In 1835, bullying was banned, and the breed was on the verge of extinction. The remaining purebred animals became the founders of the English Bulldog breed. In the 18th century, dogs of this breed were used for hunting wild boars and bears, as well as for dog fights. Continue reading
