"Mutts: America's Dogs is the encyclopedia of mixed-breed dogs: who they are, what they do, how they do it, and what kind of companions they will make in your life. Delving into the temperaments, personalities, and skills of dogs ranging from the ever-popular Benji-type dog to the beautiful and wondrous Greyhound-Labrador Retriever mix, Mutts profiles over a hundred mixed-breed dogs - Working Mutts, Sporting Mutts, Hound Mutts, Mystery Mutts, and more - with a special emphasis on their trainability and how they fit into human families." "Find out how "hybrid vigor" can create a healthier dog from two pure breeds, so that a Rottweiler-Shepherd mix may be a more trouble-free pet than a pure Rottie or Shepherd, or a Golden Retriever mix may be preferable to the popular, but increasingly physically and temperamentally compromised, pure Golden. Along the way, Mutts is full of wonderful photographs of America's dogs and heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking, and often hilarious first-person accounts of acts of extraordinary loyalty, courage, and intelligence from not-so-ordinary dogs."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
