When it comes to dog breeds and recognition, there's a clear hierarchy. Labradors, German shepherds, Chihuahuas, Great Danes and Jack Russells are household names. Everyone recognizes them instantly, and most people are pretty good at discerning one from the other. There's a second tier which most people would recognize as a breed they have seen before, even though they might not be able to name it, including breeds like bichon frisé, Westie, wheaten terrier, pointer, boxer, shih tzu, St. Bernard, Irish wolfhound, Weimaraner, Samoyed, Rhodesian ridgeback, Pekingese and others. Any serious dog lover would surely know all of these and probably many more.
What about all the other dogs, though - the ones that perhaps are not as popular in the USA or are simply more obscure on a global scale? Would you know a Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Finnish Spitz or Akita if you saw one? Could you put the correct name to a Komondor, an American Foxhound, Chinook, Mudi, Otterhound or Thai Ridgeback? We've made it multiple choice to help you out, but it's not going to be easy to score more than 75% on this test! Fortunately, no matter your score, it'll be extremely cute - and pretty darn informative. Let's get started!
