We welcome dogs to the market so long as they are both on leash and well-behaved.
We were asked to develop a picture gallery of the dogs that come to the market. Here are some of those who came during 2016.
According to Wikipedia, the Australian National Kennel Council recognises around 190 breeds of dog. Of these, around 60 (30%) are in the gallery below. In addition, 12 of the 27 (45%) major cross-breeds (cavoodle, schnoodle, etc) are also in the gallery. Only 4 (3%) of the dogs are mongrels.
According to the Herald Sun, the three most popular breeds in most Victorian suburbs are Jack Russell, Labrador and Maltese. Nillumbik is, however, an exception: Border Collie, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Golden Retriever.
