Abstract

Essay identifies the historic and geographic patterns arising from the activities of the America Kennel Club (AKC), founded in 1884 but with a registry dating to 1878. Great Britain has been the single most important source for dog breeds in the USA recognized by the AKC. Although new breeds recognized by the AKC are coming from Asia and, to a lesser degree, from Africa and Australia, 71% of AKC-recognized breeds come from Western Europe. The AKC recognizes only 12 of more than 40 breeds developed in North America. Toponymic elements in breed names are discussed. - (SLD)
