Here's some records from the doggie world:

World's Fastest Dog: Greyhound is known for its supreme speed. They can reach a top speed of 46.5 mph (75 km/h). Another breed that is known to be incredibly fast is the whippet.

Tallest Dog Breed: The Great Dane is the tallest breed. A 42.12 inches (107 cm) dog named «Gibson» from California, USA is the tallest dog alive today.

World's Heaviest Dog: The Saint Bernards dog breed holds the record for heaviest dog. Benedictine, a saint bernard dog of this breed was 357 pounds (162 kilos). Another breed that is known for is weight is the english masstiff, and the heaviest mastiff that ever lived was 350,5 pounds (159 kilos).

The smallest dog that ever lived was a chihuahua, and its length was only 5.98 inches (15.2 cm) in adulthood, and another dog of the same breed holds the record for lowest height and lowest weight, respectively 4.72 inches (12 cm) and 1.43 pounds (650 gram). That's a huge contrast to the heaviest and tallest dogs as mentioned above!

Most Popular Breed: Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed in the US, in Canada, in Europe and they are the most numerous dogs in the world.

Most Agressive: The Dachshund and Chihuahua is quite dangerous despite their size. They might not kill you, but they will bite - more often than other breeds. Actually, pitbull type breeds aren't as agressive as the media would like us to believe. Some particular pitbull dogs may be agressive, but that's because of bad breeding practises and/or because their owners didn't take the necessary precautions. The American Pitbull Terrier and the Bull terrier often make great family pets, although they can be very agressive towards other dogs. However, all dogs should be regarded as potentially dangerous. A tiny Pomeranian once attacked and killed a human child, and no breed or dog should be regarded 100% safe with children.

Animal Cruelty Photo

The picture of a dead Greenland Dog infuriates me and possibly to other people who adore animals as well, please remove that graphic image. It breaks my heart to know how cruel people are to animals when they have done absolutely nothing.

I Saw Them !!!

I living in iran and in a cold part of it name Tuyserkan. I saw these wolfs many times in the winter nights near gardens and rivers searching food In winters they come near the city because the lack of food in the mountains.

These pictures are the truth

If you can't handle the truth, go ahead and live a lie. By the way, these dogs are killed instantly and humanely, like they have been for hundreds of years.

my beautiful hansome darcy

My adorable Irish setter called Darcy wea the apple of my eye, he was very funny and very adorable, he would guard our chickens from thw cat that lived next door, forgetting totally that e was a gun dog, he loved my grandson who was only 19 months old and they were inseprable from my grandsons point of view, he would look out of the front window twitching the net curtain as he was trying to be so nosey, i had to make sure the neighbours new it was him and not me, he was certainly no guard dog as he would hide behind you if he thought someone was in the house. he made us laugh nearly every day at the antics he used to get up to.
