    Peter told

    Would you please take a look at my sentence and correct it. I am not sure if I have written it correctly.

    Peter told his friend he had bought a new dog, and the man wanted to know what breed it was.

    It's fine! You even got the comma right. Most native English speakers can't do that.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Most? Do you have any evidence to support that?
