There is only one species of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris or Canis familiaris). The different types of domestic dogs are known as "breeds."

There are several species of animals considered to be "wild dogs" (animals in the family Canidae, or canids), which includes foxes, wolves, and other dog-like species. Of these, there are 27 true dog species and 16 true fox species, a total of 43.
Their are over 100 different species of dog!!!!
