There appears to be a shortage of good pet graphics on the web, so I
have created some for you.
My dogs sets are divided by group (Herding,
Working, Non Sporting, Sporting, Hound, Toy, Terrier, and Misc. in
order to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for. If you
don't find your breed, please email me and I will try to make a set for
If your breed is represented, but you want a personalized set,
I will usually agree to do this in return for your permission to use photos
of your dog as a future model.
All of my sets are offered to you free. The only thing that I do
ask is that you do not alter the graphics in any way and that you display the
matching logo which is provided with
each set, and link it back to:
Click on the sample below to view the full set.
I will be adding to these sets almost daily, so please bookmark this site and
check back often.
The photographs for these graphics were gathered from many various sources, but
most of them were received as contributions from breeders and dog owners.
To my knowledge, none of these photos have been used without the permission
of the owner. If you should see one that has been used without permission,
please email me
and I will remove it immedietly or give the owner full credit.
You will also notice that along with many of the breeds there is a brief
description, giving their physical standard (taken from the AKC Standard for
the breed) as well as breed specific behaviors (obtained
from the C.D. "The Complete Guide to Dogs", as well as questionaires which have
been returned by reputable breeders).
Please do not
take exception if your dog does not conform to these standards - physically or
emotionally. Descriptions of behavior are not intended to "bash" any breed. The
purpose is to give a realistic view of the "usual" look and behavior of a dog
of that breed so that a person who has never owned a specific breed will know
what to expect BEFORE he purchases one. Our hope is to prevent
even one dog
from being returned to the breeder or ending up in a shelter because the new
owner didn't realize that "they're difficult to housebreak...... or that they
are very vocal......or that they don't like children..... or that they require
daily grooming". There are exceptions
to every rule, of course, and training plays a very, very important role. These behaviors
are described for the average dog who goes to the average home which has little
or no time for formal training.
