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