An Alphabetical List of Dog Breeds and Dog Breed Evolution Chart

An Alphabetical List of Dog Breeds and Dog Breed Evolution Chart

At Jet Pet Resort we have seen virtually every type of dog. Being that we are the premier dog boarding destination for dogs of all shapes and sizes in the greater Vancouver and Richmond area we have decided to put together this special dog breed resource page.

Below you will find a useful chart on the evolution of dog breeds. It is actually fascinating to view all of the dog breeds this way and that according to UCLA scholars the likely origin of the dog comes from the middle east and genetically are closely related to gray wolves.

“Dogs seem to share more genetic similarity with Middle Eastern gray wolves than with any other wolf population worldwide”

Robert Wayne, UCLA professor of ecology and evolutionary biology.

Additionally, we have listed all of the dog breeds that we are familiar with today. How many are you familiar with? Can you find yours? Can you imagine your pup a descendant of a wolf?
