There is over 125 different dog breeds registered in the kennel club that doesn't mean the whole world.
This is a tricky question to answer as, like primary and secondary colours, you have the normal breeds of dogs, Rottweiler's, Spaniels, Chihuahua, Labrador and stuff like that, but then you can crossbreed these dogs and get a RottSpaniel, or a Chibrador, or a Spalabra. Then you can breed these types of dogs to make a super dog called a Chibrasparott.
Then you can breed this dog with a normal chihuahua or a normal Labrador, so in fact you can get an infinite breed of dog, as the categories are more commonly known.

also i found out that there is over 1,000 different breeds of dogs
Dog types are general categories in which breeds of dogs fall under based on their function and use; for example, sled dogs are a dog type and the Eskimo dog is a breed of sled dogs. As such, there are eleven well-known types of dogs:
  • companion
  • guard
  • hunting
  • working
  • pariah
  • pastoral
  • herding
  • sheep
  • drovers
  • livestock guardian
  • sled

Keep in mind that there are many other lesser-known dog types.

Dog type is also sometimes incorrectly used as the direct colloquial for dog breed (also known as dog species).
