how many dog breeds are there in the world?

the international dog federation, which officially defines the characteristics of each breed, recognizes 342. but there are about a hundred unrecognized breeds, which can become so over time. in fact, it's not easy to answer this question because the number of breeds changes all the time! breeds are (inventions) of breeders who select from a litter of puppies those who have certain characteristics. they then reproduce them and, after several generations, these characteristics of size, color, hair or character become stable.

a dog becomes purebred when both its parents are of that breed themselves. at birth, the puppy of the breed is registered in a register, all dogs of french or foreign breeds are listed as well as their parents. after confirmation, the pedigree certificate is issued to the pedigree dog.
