A breed is a relatively homogeneous group of animals within a species, developed and maintained by man. All dogs, impure as well as purebred, and several wild cousins such as wolves and foxes, are one family. Man, using selective breeding to get desired qualities created each breed. Through the ages, man designed dogs that could hunt, guard, or herd according to his needs.
Coat texture and quality along with the temperament or character of a breed is often critical to its being able to perform its designated task. Even though dogs may be mainly companions today, the written standards that breeders and judges use to determine the ideal individual for the breed are based on these original tasks.
