Dog Breeds From Different Countries

Do Tell: Do You Know What Country Your Breed Came From?

I'm sad to see the World Cup come to a close but still get my fix picking the hottest soccer player of all online if not on the small screen. And, unfortunately, this means the World Cup of Dogs is also over. Wah wah woof. While I shared some trivia about breeds from competing countries during the series, I'm curious if you know where your dog's breed originated and would love to learn about it in the comments below!

Oliver is a Purrrrrrsian. There is still an unsettled debate as to whether the Persian breed actually originated in Persia, though. Some say Persia, others say Western Europe. The world may never know!

Ruby, an Italian Greyhound, probably originated in Egypt, but there is also speculation they come from Turkey or Pompeii and Stella and Gertie, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, are from England.
