Worldwide, the FCI lists 360 officially recognized breeds. These don't include experimental breeds that have yet to achieve official status.
In the United States alone, the AKC's dog breed list currently includes 190 dog breeds. Worldwide, the FCI lists 360 officially recognized breeds.
Dogs are the most variable mammal on earth with around 450 globally recognized dog breeds.
Data Quality Indicators:
|Family||Canidae Fischer, 1817 – coyotes, dogs, foxes, jackals, wolves|
|Genus||Canis Linnaeus, 1758 – dogs, foxes, jackals|
|Species||Canis lupus Linnaeus, 1758 – Wolf, Gray Wolf, Lobo gris, loup|
|Subspecies||Canis lupus familiaris Linnaeus, 1758 – domestic dog|
While these animals vary drastically in appearance, every dog—from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane—is a member of the same species, Canis familiaris. This separates domestic dogs from wild canines, such as coyotes, foxes, and wolves.
Akamaru (赤丸, Akamaru) is a nin-dog (忍犬, ninken) from Konohagakure's Inuzuka clan. He is Kiba Inuzuka's partner, as well as his best friend and constant companion.
The main difference between breed and species is that breed is a specific population that is selectively bred for the preservation of specific characteristics whereas species is the largest group that can produce a fertile offspring through breeding. Therefore, breed is a smaller group of animals than species.
A breed is a collection of organisms within a species that have different characteristics as a result of selective breeding. A species is a group of creatures that may breed to generate viable offspring when they interbreed. Different breeds of a species are developed by an artificial selection process.
The Jedi Master Yoda was the best-known member of a species whose true name is not recorded. Known in some sources simply as Yoda's species, this species of small carnivorous humanoids produced several well-known members of the Jedi Order during the time of the Galactic Republic.

Species Dysphoria is similar to gender dysphoria, in that the person believes that they were born into the wrong body. However, instead of gender, the afflicted person believes that they were born as the wrong species, generally a non-human animal.
Overwhelming evidence shows us that all species are related--that is, that they are all descended from a common ancestor. More than 150 years ago, Darwin saw evidence of these relationships in striking anatomical similarities between diverse species, both living and extinct.
In most cases, 'species identity' refers to a particular species of a specific guild, which maintains a specific ecosystem function, e.g. the decomposition of leaf litter. Species identity in the latter case could matter, because species vary in traits, e.g. decomposition rates.
Species interactions describe the relationships among organisms of different species living in the same location. Examples include herbivores eating plants, carnivores eating other animals, and organisms competing for food, space, or mates. The states of all the abiotic and biotic components of the environment.
