Dog Breeds

Different Dog Breeds, Breeders and breeding info

There are hundreds of different breeds of dogs and the most common mistake people make in having a dog is choosing the wrong breed. Active running dogs in apartments, fighting dogs as family pets. While it’s true you can get dogs that are renowned as troublesome and have no problems at all the best bet, especially for those that do not know all there is to know, is to stick with a breed that was breed for a purpose that suits your lifestyle, rather than try to bend the dog around your lifestyle.

The smartest way is to choose from how a dog acts, rather than how it looks.

This is a complete list of breeds recognised by the AKC

Miscellaneous Class Breeds

The Miscellaneous Class is intended as an interim stage prior to a breed becoming eligible to compete in a variety group at AKC shows. Under our current policy, dogs would become eligible for registration at the time that the breed is brought into the Miscellaneous Class. Before entry into the Miscellaneous Class, the Board will work with the national club to determine the variety group to which the breed will be assigned. After a limited time in the Miscellaneous Class a date would be set, at which time the breed would become eligible to compete in a variety group at all-breed dog shows.

This information from the AKC Recognized Dog Breeds web page

The AKC Board of Directors has the authority to add a breed to the list of AKC-registrable breeds if, in its opinion, sufficient evidence is presented to justify such action. There are a number of factors the Board considers in making this decision, including documentation that the breed in question has been breeding true for many generations, with accurate record keeping; evidence that there is sufficient interest in the breed throughout the United States; and a national club in place that meets AKC requirements to act as the parent club for the breed.
