I have always tried to find out what breed the dogs were, so I can image what they looked like in the books. In secrets of the clans, the picture of the dog kind of looked like a rottweiler, in the second book of graystripe's comics, they looked like dobermans, and on the covor of a chinese or japanese warrior book (i can't remember which one) they look like dobermans also. Also, the lead dog of the pack was mentioned to be black and brown, and both of these dogs are black and brown. I think its a pack of dobermans. What do you think?
