Grammar Question

 . . . a pair of german shepherds, a great dane and a boxer.

Yeah, I know, capitalize countries. But these are dog breeds. It's not German shepards, a great Dane and a boxer.

But if it's . . .  German Shephards, a Great Dane . . . shouldn't Boxer also be capitalized? Is there some rule about "only caplitalize dog breeds when there's a country name in there?"

I'm digging through the Exiles google doc before updating, and, OK, I know I can't complain about _other_ people missing things, when I obviously missed them all more than once. But the capitolize dog and horse breeds thing has stymied me more than once.
