Introducing the Corded Breeds

So you've never seen a four-legged, wet-nosed mop, eh? Well, take a look at the Komondor in Figure 10-1, who is joined by four other breeds on the corded list:

i Bergamasco i Corded Poodle (Poodles can be shown with corded coats) i Komondor i Puli i Spanish Water Dog

Corded dogs are water dogs or herding dogs, primarily because their corded coats provide good protection against the elements.

There are over a hundred registered breeds of dogs. Recognizing the type of the dog is basically associated with its breed. A purebred animal belongs to a documented and acknowledged group of unmixed lineage. Before a breed of dog is recognized, it must be proven that mating two adult dogs of the sametype would have passed on their exact characteristics, both appearance and behavior, to their offspring.
