El American Pitbull Terrier es una raza canina, originaria de Estados Unidos y descendiente del Bulldog inglés original.pico adaptable e impaciente entre la vasta familia canina. Destaca por su resistencia a la fatiga y al dolor, junto con su obstinada perseverancia en la superación de cualquier desafío. Aunque la raza APBT se usó una vez como un símbolo nacional norteamericano de valor y orgullo, es actualmente motivo de controversia.OrigenEl APBT se ha criado históricamente para el combate contra otros perros, un APBT bien educado tiene un temperamento muy firme y, contrariamente a la creencia popular, no es intrínsecamente agresivo hacia los seres humanos. Sin embargo, como adultos, los APBTs pueden mostrar agresión hacia otros perros y animales. Este hecho, junto con la fuerza de APBT´s y su determinación, debe tomarse en cuenta cuando se piensa en tener un APBT. Como con cualquier perro, la socialización y el entrenamiento constante, son elementos que se deben manejar desde muy temprana edad.Hay varios tipos de perros que comúnmente los llaman "Pit Bull". Principalmente, éstos son el American Pitbull Terrier, el American Staffordshire Terrier (AST), y el Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT), los tres comparten una ascendencia ancestral común, pero los fueron criando posteriormente acentuando diversos criterios de crianza en cada una de las líneas. Debido a esta divergencia, alguna gente piensa que ahora son razas distintas. Otros prefieren verlos como diversas " variaciones" de la misma raza. Ninguna de las dos visiones es incorrecta, pues entra en discusión el cómo definimos una " raza ". Este documento versa principalmente sobre el American Pitbull Terrier, específicamente esos perros que descienden de la relativamente reciente "raza de competición".

@Persian cats -- #TV & Movies

The Persian cat is a long-haired breed of cat characterized by its round face and short muzzle. It is sometimes called the Longhair or Persian Longhair. It is also known as the Shirazi cat or Iranian cat, particularly in the Middle East. The first documented ancestors of the Persian were imported into Europe from Iran around 1620. Recognized by the cat fancy since the late 19th century, it was developed first by the English, and then mainly by American breeders after the Second World War. Some cat fancier organizations´ breed standards subsume the Himalayan and Exotic Shorthair as variants of this breed, while others treat them as separate breeds.The selective breeding carried out by breeders has allowed the development of a wide variety of coat colors, but has also led to the creation of increasingly flat-faced Persians. Favored by fanciers, this head structure can bring with it a number of health problems. As is the case with the Siamese breed, there have been efforts by some breeders to preserve the older type of cat, the traditional breed, having a more pronounced muzzle, which is more popular with the general public. Hereditary polycystic kidney disease is prevalent in the breed, affecting almost half the population in some countries.

El dogo argentino es una raza canina originaria de Argentina. Se considera representante del Bullenbeisser junto con el alano español. Es parte del grupo Generación Bullenbeisser. Junto con el Perro Pila Argentino son las únicas razas de perros desarrolladas en la República Argentina que todavía existen. Las otras dos, el perro polar argentino y el perro de pelea cordobés, están extintas.EtimologíaLa voz dogo proviene de la palabra inglesa dog, significando perro.Historia de la razaFue desarrollada por el médico argentino Antonio Nores Martínez, quien buscaba un animal adecuado para la caza mayor de especies habituales en Argentina, tales como jabalíes, pecaríes, pumas y zorros colorados. En la década de 1920, Nores Martínez (ayudado por su hermano Agustín, su padre Antonio y tíos) decidió crear una raza de presa que reuniera las mejores cualidades del perro de pelea cordobés, pero con unas dimensiones y una fuerza física superiores. Además, buscaba un perro que tuviese aptitudes para la caza en jauría, pero que fuese capaz de batir o parar él sólo a la presa en combate hasta la llegada de su amo o el resto de la jauría.

El husky siberiano es una raza de perro de trabajo originaria del noreste de Siberia (Chukotka, Rusia). Esta raza presenta un acusado parecido con el lobo. Originalmente fue criado por la tribu chukchi, en la que se utilizaba como perro de compañía para pastorear a los ciervos, tirar de los trineos y mantener calientes a los niños; en la actualidad se encuentra en muy diversas zonas del mundo.HistoriaEs ampliamente reconocido que los huskies se originaron exclusivamente con los miembros de la tribu chukchi del este de Siberia. Hay evidencias de que los siberianos han sido importados desde las tribus de koryak y kamchadal. Recientes análisis de ADN revelan que esta es una de las más antiguas razas de perros en el mundo.Fueron llevados a Alaska desde el año 1905 y continuamente durante dos décadas debido a la fiebre del oro. Fueron empleados para tirar de trineos, y especialmente para la carrera All-Alaska Sweepstakes, que comprendía 657 km desde Nome hasta Candle ida y vuelta. De menor tamaño, más rápidos y de mayor resistencia que los perros comunes (entre 45 y 54 kg) usados en general, los siberianos inmediatamente dominaron la carrera.

The poodle is a group of formal dog breeds, the Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle and Toy Poodle. The origins of the poodles are still discussed with a dispute over whether the poodle descends from the old French Barbet breed or from Germany as a type of water dog.Ranked second most intelligent dog breed just behind the Border Collie, the poodle is skillful in many dog sports and activities, including agility, obedience, tracking to herding, circus performers or assistance dogs. Poodles have taken top honors in many conformation shows, including "Best in Show" at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 1991 and 2002, and at the World Dog Show in 2007 and 2010.Toy Poodles won "Best in Show" at Crufts in 1966 and 1982. Standard Poodles achieved the award in 1955, 1985, 2002 and 2014. The 2002 winner came from Norway and was the first overseas exhibit to win the Crufts best in show award.HistoryThe origin of the poodle is disputed. Encyclopædia Britannica traces the origin of the poodle in Germany where it was known as the Pudelhund. The word Pudel is derived from the Low German verb meaning "to splash about", and the word Hund (dog). The Fédération Cynologique Internationale holds that the poodles descends from the French dog Barbet and might have been crossed with the Hungarian water dog. The French name Caniche comes from the word cane (the female of the duck) since this type of breed was used as a water retriever mainly for duck hunting thanks to its swimming ability. Due to the breed´s popularity in France, it became established as a national breed.
