Dogs have a unique and versatile partnership with humans, loyally performing a variety of roles as hunters, herders, guards or simply companions. Among all species of mammals, the dog is the most varied in shape, size and colour and this celebration explores the history and development of major dog breeds around the world, grouping them according to key characteristics including elegance and speed; power and strength; devotion and loyalty. Animal photographer Astrid Harrison provides striking portraits of each breed.
