The Master Breed List

Most Dog Breed atlases are written with the dimwit in mind. Dimwits do stupid things such as scour the world looking for a rare dog breed from some obscure breeder in East Bumbletown just so they can have something different than their neighbor.

Most dog breed atlases fuel this stupidity by including breeds that are so rare or so unreasonable to own they should be sued for malicious encouragement of stupidity. Breedfreak avoids this stupidity of including every breed on the planet. We have done your work for you so you can do other important things such as go to the supermarket and buy gluten free spaghetti, spend time with your family, quit drinking Diet Coke for no good reason, read the Oatmeal, or even have a sexy adventure rompus with someone who smells nice.

Maybe someday  you will own that rare Italian Mastiff that will bite your face and eat your kids but you will love them because they are such a “majestic” and rare specimen.  For now, we encourage you to focus on the following breeds. Call it boring. Call it what you want but we have our reasons for picking these breeds. Get the book to find out why.
