Although not in the top 10, it’s best to mention our very own domestic short-haired dogs or Aspins. They are warm, playful, and affectionate dogs who are loyal to their owners and great in families. Before, Aspins were considered “lesser dogs” because of their unknown and mixed breeds; however, everything changed due to their attributes. Now, Aspins are getting and receiving more recognition in the Philippines and the world.
