Historians find world's first pedigree dog

2 posts in this topic

A Pointer called Major has been identified by historians as the first 'pedigree' dog.

The team, from the University of Manchester, found a description of the dog in an 1865 edition of the Victorian journal, The Field.

It is believed that this was the first time that an attempt had been made to define a dog breed standard based on the animal’s physical form.
