Not only is the human population exploding; the canine population is exploding as well. There are about 25 million dogs in the United States. More than 4 million of these are registered purebreds. Throughout the world there are about 225 well-defined breeds of dogs, but only 115 of these are recognized by the American Kennel Club. In 1915 there was one pureblooded dog to every 300 people; in 1949, one to every 75; and in 1967, one to every 22.
