Popular Dog Breeds and their evolution from 100 years ago till today
4 German Shepherd
The German shepherd originated in Germany in 1899, it is also known as the Alsatian. They were primarily bred to herd sheep and displayed great intelligence. Today the German Shepherd is the second most popular dog breed in the USA and has evolved its body to feature a thicker abdomen and a sharp poised stance.
5 Saint Bernard
We all love and remember the cute movie ‘Beethoven’ don’t we? Saint Bernards are one of the most affectionate and faithful dogs on earth and that’s what they were actually bred for in cold climates. To save people lost in blizzards and heavy snowfall. Even today they make great rescue dogs. They date as far back as Roman times when they even served in the Roman army.
Today Saint Bernards have broad angular skulls and are different from what they were since their inception.
