Loyal, Good-Natured, Observant

The Berger Picard is a lanky herding dog of strong bone and sturdy build. Picards spent centuries as take-charge independent problem-solvers, so early socialization and positive training are necessary to cope with their stubborn streak.

Great Danedane

 

  •  
  • Friendly, Patient, Dependable
  • The easygoing Great Dane, the mighty “Apollo of Dogs,” is a total joy to live with—but owning a dog of such imposing size, weight, and strength is a commitment not to be entered into lightly. This breed is indeed great, but not a Dane.

Lakeway Manchesters

Agile, Spirited, Intelligent

The Manchester Terrier is named after the English city where it was first bred. Sleek, racy dogs who possess a terrier’s ratting instinct and the graceful contours of coursing hounds, Manchesters are spirited, bright, and athletic. They combine the streamlined grace of a coursing hound and the instincts of a fearless Rat Terrier. These racy dogs come in two size varieties:  Toy (not exceeding 12 pounds) and Standard (not exceeding 22 pounds).

Opal Ridge


Friendly, Smart, Obedient

The Miniature Schnauzer, the smallest of the three Schnauzer breeds, is a generally healthy, long-lived, and low-shedding companion. Norwich Terriers are plucky little earthdogs named for their hometown in England. The old cliché “a big dog in a small package” was coined for breeds like the Norwich, who can be oblivious to the fact that they are just 10 inches tall.
Add an outgoing personality, a portable size, and sporty good looks, and you’ve got an ideal family dog.

  •  
  • Friendly, Spirited, Intelligent
  • The Welsh Terrier is as alert and spirited as any self-respecting terrier, but a bit calmer than most—“game, not quarrelsome,” as breed fanciers say. The Welshman was bred to do battle with badgers, otters, and other dangerous opponents.
