British Shorthair
Probably the oldest English breed of cat, traces its ancestry back to the domestic cat of Rome. This breed was first prized for its physical strength and hunting ability, but soon become equally recognized and valued for its calm demeanor, endurance and loyalty to man. It is a delight to own. British Shorthair is intelligent, affectionate and not temperamental. They tolerate children, dogs, and other breeds of cats.

This breed is one of the oldest natural breeds. It is thought to have originated in Egypt or abyssinai (Ethiopia), and bears a striking resemblance to the cats worshipped, painted and sculpted by the Ancient Egyptians. Spirited and inquisitive, the Aby seems to be in constant motion, a personality trait sometimes at odds with small apartment living. They are gentle and affectionate to humans and make ideal companions.

Although there have been many theories about the origin of the Siamese. It is now quite certain that it was a well-loved variety in the ancient Siamese city of Ayudhaya. The breed is definitely garrulous, openly affectionate, often vocal and highly intelligent. A dynamic, high-energy cat requires owners who are prepared to give and receive a lifetime of devotion.

Pixie Bob
Legend has it that the large, brown-spotted Tabby with the big feet, bobbed tail, wild look and gentle personality can trace its ancestry back to a cross between a wild North American and a domestic barn cat. Despite its possibly wild heritage, this breed is a truly domesticated cat. Loyal, trustworthy, gentle, affectionate and almost ‘dog-like’, Pixie Bobs thrive on human attention and prefer the comforts of home to the call of the wild.

Tibetan Mastiff
A large guardian breed of dog from the Himalayas, bred to guard monasteries, villages, nomadic, camps and livestock herds, it is predominately territorial and loyal to family. Personality will differ from dog to dog but generally they are a strong-willed, courageous and highly intelligent animal. The natural instinctive ability makes Tibetan Mastiff an excellent home protector.

The national dog of France, this breed originally was water dog used for retrieving and their conformation, texture and pattern of their coats to this day reflect the purposes for which they were bred. Poodle is an active, intelligent, nerve, elegant and easily trained. A poodle is a ‘person’ and he expects to be treated as one. Each one is a character and for that reason they make wonderful companions.

Yorkshire Terrier
The earliest record of Yorkshire Terrier born in the United States dates to 1872. Today’s Yorkshire Terrier is different from the early period. There are varying accounts of the origins of this breed and its development. This breed is an independent dog but devoted companion. Despite his small size he is more than willing to act as a guardian for his master

Basset Hound
Descended from the old St. Hubert hounds, the Basset Hound was bred hunting small game such as pheasant and rabbit. The breed is one of the best dogs available for a family to love. They are extremely tolerant, very gentle, sweet, loyal and affectionate breed, although they are quite stubborn at times but they love everyone in the family equally.
