According to an American Indian legend, God created the world by placing four columns to hold the sky up and separating it from the earth. Then he went for a walk in the world and little by little created everything we find in it today. This legend specifies how men and women first appeared as well as well how he created the rivers and how each animal was created one by one, except the dog.
The story tells that God had a dog from the beginning, and they came to the Earth with him for the purpose of helping humans in hunting, herding, vigilance and other tasks.
Currently there are about forty species of canids. All the breeds of domestic dogs belong to the species canis familiaris. The variety of existing breeds can be explained to the fact that each of the different animals come from various places and times. Each dog breed can be more different than the other depending on what part of world it comes from. They can be of all sizes, colors and temperaments. For example Chihuahuas can be small and nervious while Retrievers can be larger and playful. No matter how many dogs breeds exist, I am sure there is the perfect one for every dog lover.
