My favourite animal

I like dogs best. Dogs are mammals. They are mostly kept as pets in houses. They make goodcompanions for both children and adults. Dogs are faithful and loyal to their masters.

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. Some are small such as Miniature Pinshers and Chihuahuas.Some are decorative like Cocker Spaniels, Yorkshire Terriers and Pekingnese. Some dogs are very fierceand they are kept as guard dogs. Rott Weilers and German Shepherds are examples of such dogs.

Some dogs are trained for special functions like taking care of blind people. They are the eyes of thesehandicapped people. Some dogs such as Alsatians are also trained to help policeman catch criminals.

There are dogs which are trained to rescue people who are buried in the rubble after a flood or earthquake. Some dogs like the Collies are trained to help in farms guarding sheep and cattle. Dobermans make very fierce guard dogs and they are used by security firms in their work.

As dogs are so useful and helpful to men, they are often called "man's best friend."
