Breed History

Working with preservation breeders and dog breed parent clubs, Showsight Magazine is proud to share the rich history behind today’s top pedigrees. From their humble beginnings, through the most troubled war times the history of purebred dogs is as vast as it is fascinating. We hope you enjoy the insights and anecdotes we’ve gathered from the most honored and widely recognized voices in the purpose-bred, purebred dog community.
