Wink Abbreviations for breeds

The topic of "what is a GSD?" came up in another thread, so thought it'd be fun to start a new topic devoted to abbreviations commonly given to various breeds. I'll start with the only breed I've had:

ESS = English Springer Spaniel

Anyone want to do nicknames for breeds too?

Zoi = Borzoi
Beezer = Ibizan Hound
Needlenose = any sighthound breed
