Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harold R. Spira, BVSc MRCVS MACVSc HDA, most commonly referenced as Dr. Harry Spira, was an Australian veterinarian, geneticist and dog fancier who was instrumental in the development of dog breeding programs which used artificial insemination and frozen semen. An author and respected dog-show judge, he was active in the Australian National Kennel Club and proposed an alternative system of dog breed grouping. Among his myriad activities, Harry Spira participated in the promotion of the Afghan Hound in Australia and was an outspoken opponent of breed-specific legislation against the German Shepherd dog. His book Canine Terminology, which has come to be considered a standard text on the subject, was reprinted in 2006.show more
