The King of the Cattle Dogs


The King of the Cattle Dogs: English Shepherds in Mid-Twentieth Century America debuted as a #1 New Release on Amazon. In this book, we identify the origins of registered black and tan English Shepherds, trace their matriculation across the continent in the mid-twentieth century, get to know the key figures who selected dogs for breeding, reveal the characteristic traits they selected for, and credit the specific sources on which we have based our claims and conclusions.  We also identify fallacies, antiquated practices, and leaps of logic in these historical publications as a necessary step towards understanding the true history and nature of our black and tan English shepherd bloodline.

Spiral Bound.  First Edition.  Also available in e-book format.
