About This Quiz

The World Canine Organization is one of the largest international federations of kennel clubs in the world and it recognizes just over 330 breeds of dogs as official. They are divided into 10 categories based on how they looked or their intended uses.

These categories include terriers like the Bedlington and the Border terriers, pointers and setters like the German shorthaired pointer, retriever like the Golden and the Labrador retrievers, dachshunds, sheepdogs and cattle dogs like the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, companions and toy dogs like Poodles and Bichons, as well as sighthounds like the Afghan hound, Saluki and Greyhound, just to name a few. 

Today, many people own dogs based on their intended uses but even more, own them for companionship. Whichever it may be, the dog population is increasing, with many people determined on keeping the breeds pure. 

How well do you know the different dog breeds of the world? If you were given images of some of these dogs, both popular and rare, would you be able to correctly identify them? Well, if you think you're an expert, then take this quiz to find out if you really are!
