How do you describe dog breeds in your world? I want to use real world dog breds in my world, but it feels awkward. Most dog breeds have names derived from a real world location/other real world reference. For example Labradors were named after the Canadian region of Labrador, newfoundlands were named after the island of Newfoundland, dalamtions were named after a region in Croatia, great danes are named after Denmark, even thou they didn't originated there. One of my characters have a king charles spaniel, the problem is that I don't know how to refer to the breed. I don't want references to real world history in a fictional world which don't have any conection to Earth, but I don't want a made up a word.
