These dogs remained in the Brooke family for nearly 300 years. American Bulldogs can be droolers; this varies and is more prevalent in the Bully type, which is generally a larger, heavier dog with a shorter muzzle. The breed is the smallest of the sporting dogs recognised by the AKC, and its distinctly shaped head makes it immediately recognisable. The American Foxhound is an energetic breed. The American Hairless Terrier does not have dental issues (absent premolars) or other characteristics associated with the dominant hairless gene.

The basic types are companion dogs, guard dogs, hunting dogs, herding dogs, and working dogs, although there are many other types and subtypes. The word cocker is commonly held to stem from their use to hunt woodcock in England, while spaniel is thought to be derived from the type's origins in Spain. Some dogs, such as the Löwchen, have an uncertain origin and are listed under several countries. In 1650, Robert Brooke sailed from England to Crown Colony in North America with his pack of hunting dogs, which were the root of several strains of American Hounds. The breed was first recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1886.
