Identification made easy - for beginners and established enthusiast alike, the Dorling Kindersley "Handbook of Dogs" traces the evolution of the domestic dog, explains the difference between pedigrees and non-pedigrees, looks at how breeds are classified and examines their characteristics in detail.
