    Modern dog breeds exhibit a diverse array of fur coats, including dogs without fur, such as the Mexican Hairless Dog. Navigation Use the navigational links in the top left corner to jump to different pages. Eyes are pretty obvious, and most often obviously brown. For dogs, wavelengths longer than the neutral point cannot be distinguished from each other and all appear as yellow. Some broad-headed breeds with short noses have a field of vision similar to that of humans. They walk on four toes, front and back, and have vestigial dewclaws on their front legs and on their rear legs.

    Their sense of smell is extremely sensitive and the government often uses dogs to track people, drugs, or explosives. The belly or abdomen is the underside of the dog from the end of its rib cage to its tail. There is, perhaps, an exception for hunting dogs who can sometimes tear the dewclaw while running in overgrown vegetation. Click and hold on the arrowhead and slide to the right to magnify the image.
