hairy hairless (they have varying degrees of hair, generally they have a full crest and tail plume, a little more on the legs than a hairless, and can have some hair growth on the spine
Very Hairy Hairles (these guys make the favorite show dogs as they have the super full crests, tails and feet/legs, but they also have ALOT of body hair (when ungroomed, they can look almost like full powderpuffs) and need extensive grooming to be show ready.)

AHH you stole mine!!! You've got an extra "T" in there though, it should just be Alsation. Still in use today, and came into use because the British didn't want to call the dogs "German" shepherds because of the war.

first it was just leopard dog
then it was catahoula cur
then it became the catahoula leopard dog

the blackmouth cur is often called by the line it originates from ladner BMC, carnathon BMC, howard BMC, ben BMC some registries only recognize the yellow color & call the breed yellow blackmouth cur

the same thing happens w/ most hunting breeds, lipper & nance treeing walkers, cameron blueticks, kemmer Mt curs, nuttal patterdales, cunningham greys, ad infinitum

old names for the dane
were grand danois
danisch doggen for the fawn
ulmer for the brindle
boar dog for the black & harlequin

pits
yankee terrier
american bull terrier
nanny dog (also used for the EBT & Staffy Bull)

rottweiller metzgerhund (butcher's dog)
thuringian cattledog (also came in red & blue)

american bulldog
old southern white
country white
english white
pit bulldog
country bulldog
country red
southern bulldog

rhodesian ridgeback
south african lion dog

plotts
plott cur
plott bear dog
plott hound (only after von outcrossed to hound)

ACD
blue or red heeler
queensland heeler

Stumpy tailed cattle dog

Default ah, here's the thread i mean to post on

I know alot more about the keesie stuff then the sammy stuff, so I'll shower you with other names for the keeshond:

er...keeshond
wolf spitz
loupe chien
german wolf spitz
dutch barge dog
poor man's glamour dog

In holland, the keeshond used to guard the barges that went up and down the rhine river, and that's how they traveled to places like germany. In holland, the keeshond comes in about 1000000 different colors, just like the pomeranian does here.

But they weren't always known as the keeshond. they were just regular farmers dogs. all purpose for varmit catching and all that. then came cornelius de guysler, who headed a political party in holland known as the people's party. He loved the little spitzes around the region and had many of them. one was always by his side.

Kees is a nick name for cornelius. hence, keeshond is dutch for kees dog, so thoroughly did keeshonden become affiliated with the party.

when william of orange invaded, almost all keeshond were killed due to their affiliation with the people's party which de guysler ran.

The english came in and saved the breed, which is what happened to alot of breeds over the years. the english and their dogs!

However, when the breed hit england, known as over weight pomeranians, the pom breed club was concerned about their breed's popularity and only allowed the keeshond club to breed dogs of the wolf sable coloring.

first come first served, i guess. so, even today, you'll see white kees and black kees and orange (yes they look a bit strange) pop up in otherwise totally wolf sable litters.

Didn't they go one further and become the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog?

Sorry if I am obnoxious, but that spelling is still not right, it is Alsatian, with an "a" before the "n". They came up with the name after the Alsace region of France, which is heavily German and was overrun by German troops in WWII. Political correctness is definitely not a new concept.

ROFL. Love it!

I've heard the Heinz 57 type shepherd crosses here called a "Pound Special"

ACD's I've heard referred to as the "Shadow Dog" because they follow you around like little shadow.

Sienna (a mix of unknown breeds) is apparently considered to be:
Awwwwww
Whatkindofdogisthat?
and
Lookatthecutepuppy!

I get asked her breed so often I thought about calling her a "Carson Squirrel-Pointing Spaniel" after the shelter she came from and a cute habit.
