Since prehistoric times, humans and dogs have shared a unique bond and both have served each other well. Early people discarded food and as a result, wild wolves cast fear and caution aside, following and approaching their two-legged neighbors until they became less wary of each other. As humans hunted, fished, herded, and hauled, they found ways to benefit from the presence and talents of these animals. Over time, both learned to work together, rely on, and like each other.

This book is a fascinating look at the distinct groups that have developed — hunting, herding, working, and companion — as humans selectively bred dogs to bring out desired attributes. Stunning illustrations, maps, and fascinating information combine to explain the origins and characteristics of typical breeds within each grouping.

Little Lions, Bull Baiters & Hunting Hounds is an indispensable book for any dog lover and a wonderful guide for those about to choose their own canine companion.
perfect "step down" from other books on my shelf to use with 5 and 7 y.o. grand kiddos. Well written and illustrated - even the 13 y.o. who reads the other "dog books" enjoyed it

My 12 year old daughter got this at the library and begged me to buy it for her for Christmas. She was thrilled to receive it as a gift.

Jeff Crosby and Shelley Ann Jackson have created an informative and beautiful introduction to dog breeds of the world. The book is filled with interesting facts about many of the popular breeds and great illustrations of the dog breeds. I would recommend this book to parents with kids that are interested in dogs or to adults that are interested in the history of dog breeds around the world.
