While conducting research for an upcoming blog post, we came across the following breed list. This is such an awesome compilation of all the recognized breeds (complete with links to their breed standards), that we just had to share it with you all.

We take-our-hats-off  for the AKC, and all they do for dogs. It is a great organization, full of so much helpful and educational information.

We hope you all have as much fun looking through all these breeds as we did,
~ Zena & Pamela

American Kennel Club (AKC) Recognized Breeds

The best way to ensure a long and happy relationship with a purebred dog is to purchase the dog from a responsible breeder. While the AKC does not endorse or recommend breeders, they do provide a Breeder Referral Search and an Online Breeder Classified service. You should receive AKC registration papers from the breeder when you purchase your dog. (FYI - pictures below are NOT to scale.)

    Why we love all God's creatures, but we're REALLY fond of Cardigan Welsh Corgis, of course!!
