Dogs by breed A - F, Dogs by breed P - R , Dogs by breed S - Z

The stamps on this page are mostly CTO sets, which means that they were made especially for collectors. An advantage of CTO stamps is that they tend to have lighter and neater postmarks than ordinary stamps. They also tend to be very large, colourful stamps.

Special offer: ten stamps of your favourite breed for £5.00, or an average of £0.50 each if I have less than ten. I am happy to make up a customised, personal pack for you so that you can avoid duplicating stamps that you already have.
You can email me at alisonlever@yahoo.co.uk

Greyhound

Greyhounds have many fans because they are gentle dogs, which like to snuggle up warm on the sofa, next to their owners. They need less exercise than one might suppose, though they are built for speed. A good morning run is happily followed by a long snooze. Many youngish greyhounds are retired from work as racing or hunting dogs, and can face a bleak future, a challenge taken up by rescue groups which find homes for ex-working greyhounds, where they can live in comfort as pets. Housetraining and teaching recall can take a while, but with patience, ex-working greyhounds can make excellent companions.

Shown here are greyhound stamps from Afghanistan and Czechoslovakia at £0.50 each, followed by three classics from Hungary, which is an important country for fans of Greyhound stamps. Greyhounds and Hunters (1971), Greyhounds and Horses (1979), and Italian Greyhound with Rabbit (1972) are all available at £0.55. The last stamp is from Timor, and costs £0.50. More greyhound stamps available, as well as Italian greyhound and whippet stamps, please ask.

Japanese Chin

Keeshonds

Keeshonds are spitz dogs, and have the typical spitz independence, though they are very trainable, so long as house rules are made clear when the dogs are pups. Some owners may be tempted to spoil their Keesie pups, since Keeshonds are natural clowns, and are exceptionally appealing as puppies. Keeshonds love snow, and can find hot days a trial, for they were designed to guard Dutch barges in freezing weather. Four Keeshond stamps are shown here, classics from Laos and Mongolia, each at £0.60 mint, a Nicaraguan Keeshond at £0.55, and a Keeshond from East Timor at £0.45. More stamps showing Keeshonds and other spitz breeds are available, please ask.

Maltese Terrier 

Maltese Terriers are lively, spirited dogs, which enjoy the company of children. They are small and cute, but need obedience training and exercise just like any dog. Their fine, silky hair needs a fair amount of grooming, or a trim, or it can become matted, and they can be vulnerable to extreme heat and extreme cold.

Shown here are Maltese stamps from Korea, at  £0.35, an attractive head study from Poland, at £0.85, and a Maltese Terrier from Timor, at  £0.45.

Mongrels

Some people just love dogs, and like the uniqueness of mongrels, which can turn out unlike either parent, and even unlike their siblings. Mongrels also tend to be healthier than pure-bred dogs, though some long-lived breeds, such as whippets, can live longer than Mongrels bred from grandparents of breeds with relatively short lifespans. Mixing genes tends to lessen the risk of disorders being inherited from both parents. Some owners also swear that Mongrels are more intelligent, though we all think our own dogs are the Best in the World.

Here are two minisheets which celebrate Mongrels, Mixed-Breeds or Mutts. The first minisheet is from Manama, and was issued in 1987, while the second is from Nairu, and was issued in 1994 to celebrate the Year of the Dog. The minisheets are available at £1.25 for the two, both mint.

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.
