Breed List

I have a fascination with dog breeds, and love to learn about different breeds. I can usually recognize a purebred dog, even the rare ones that people don’t expect me to. (Only one person so far has known what breed Reed is!) A lot of these are breeds I was lucky enough to meet while working at PetSmart.
