Dogs always seemed to come and go – and for every breed that died out there was surely a score of new types coming in. Breed catalogues lengthened decade by decade. Of classification proper the Romans were first to produce a serious effort: their list was of six recognized groups. Then the old Brythonic laws took the lists a stage further, and by Elizabethan times there were at least a score of defined breeds well above the degree of common cur.
