Dalmatian - Cruellea Deville knew style when she spotted it. What she may not have known was what an elegant, athletic, powerful running machine the Dalmatian is. No surprise given that they're the only breed developed primarily to run alongside horses as a coach dog. Built for endurance as well as speed, this one needs his daily exercise.

English Mastiff - A gentle giant with a lovable manner, this breed walks softly but carries a big stick. Originally bred to pin down game poachers without hurting them, this dog does best with early training and socialization. The short coat is low maintenance, but the drool factor is high and must be considered part of the breed's charm.
The Clumber Spaniel...under-appreciated in the US, the Clumber makes a wonderful family dog with his patient, quiet, and gentlemanly manner. Smart and eager-to-please, the Clumber tends to bark only when he has something to say, which means he can be forgiven for his moderate shedding and rather marked drooling.
Saluki - A favorite of Pharaohs & kings, experts say this breed may predate the pyramids. Graceful, gentle, dignified, but with a definite independent streak that can make training a Saluki a bit of a challenge, although a rewarding one.
