This is so cool. Not just because it lists some really cool breeds and what places they originated (Bull Arabs are cooooool as hell, and Latin America makes some stunning breeds), but because you can also get a nice peek into what needs the people in their respective regions of origin have!
The difference between Africa’s dogs, and dogs from Switzerland, the Middle East, or Ireland is staggering.
Dogs were bred to be not only companions, but tools, so our lives exclusively benefit one another, and our survival is intertwined. Think about what is required of the Ridgeback, of the Gull Terrier of Pakistan, the Bernese Mountain dog, the Cane Corso, the Corgi, the Samoyed. And ask yourself how fucking cool it is that all of these animals were exclusively created to EXCEL in their home regions, in their familiar terrain, be it farmland, snow capped mountains, lush fields with rodents to chase, or a vast, dry flatland with lions that need to be chased off, or in a pit, in a war, whatever.
This is so cool because you can connect those regions very richly with the doggies they created and see what they’re probably like based on the purpose of the dog, it’s build, etc.
IDK DOGS ARE FUCKING COOL AND DOGS AND HUMANS RELATIONSHIPS OVER THE YEARS ARE EVEN COOLER
