In ancient Egypt, dogs played a very important paper in the official acts and ceremonies of the court, in the religious rites they occupied outstanding places and it existed in them something of mystery that located at levels superiors to those of many humans, such it is the case of the god Anubis whose head is represented by what today we know as the Ibizan hound, autochthonous race of Ibiza, and that it comes undoubtedly from Egyptian dogs. If we observe in their context the relationship man-dog, we arrive to the conclusion that it has always been a faithful friend and companion, as example we have the passage of when Ulysses returns home after twenty years of absence and he was only recognized by their dog Argus.
At the present time, races like the German shepherd, Collie, Boxer and many others, have been prepared to be able to help man in a series of services of a lot of utility and value.

In this sector we could classify an enormous variety of crossbreed dogs to those that many breeds have transmitted some characteristic: from the Boxer to the Poodle, from the Dachshund to the Pinscher, from the Cocker to the Maltese. In each case the possible (or impossible) identification depends on the morphological data that it presents each animal. The short paws, the lengthened body, the reddish and flat coat, they mean a relationship with the Dachshund. A solid body, the short muzzle and the black face allow seeing the Boxer. A size thirty to thirty five centimeters and a weight of no more of six kilos, the short hair of reddish color, the vivacity and the happiness will suggest that that dog probably descends of a Pinscher or of the small German Terrier. Helping to achieve some series of works that had been impossible until today conceived by human mind.
