SO AIN’T NOBODY GONNA EXPLAIN WHY THERE’S AN AMERICAN DOG CALLED A COONHOUND?????

what the fuck is “latin american” dogs tho like this is such a mess

Uhhh…why is Australian Shepherd not under Australian dogs? I’m confused.

…why is the french bulldog under English dogs, I

The Coonhound was originally bred for hunting raccoons and other animals that preferred to hide in trees. They have to chase the raccoon up the tree, and then they would “bay” (or do their version of a howl) so their owner could find them. x

"Latin American" refers to dogs that were created in Central & South America (I assume). For example, the Dogo Argentino originates in Argentina. Chihuahua’s were named for the state of Chihuahua in Mexico, but their origin is a huge gray area. The most sensible theory is that they descended from the Techichi, a companion dog favored by people from the Toltec civilization in Mexico. x x

Australian Shepherds were developed on ranches in the western United States in the early 1800’s. I have no idea why we decided to call them Australian Shepherds. x

French Bulldogs do originate from England, but when they were displaced by the Industrial Revolution, breeders continued to breed them in France. x

Woah…haven’t talked about dogs that much since I started this blog, lol.
