With it's cute looks and a unique build, everyone knows the sausage-dog. Their cute appearance and personality have kept them highly placed in lists of popular dogs since the '50s.
For conformation during shows and trials kennel associations in many countries group breeds based on the purpose for which the dogs were originally bred. Although there is not an international standard for group titles, e.g. the Rottweiler is part of the "working" group in America and Canada, and the "utility" group in Australia and New Zealand, the breeds within each group are largely the same, regardless of the their titles.
