As defined by Wikipedia.com, A species generally consists of all the individual organisms of a natural population which are able to interbreed, generally sharing similar appearance, characteristics and genetics due to having relatively recent common ancestors. and as defined by Dictionary.com, A Breed is a relatively homogenous group of animals within a species, developed and maintained by humans.
