Three New American Kennel Club Official Breeds

The American Kennel Club has announced that three new dog breeds became eligible for AKC registration on January 1, 2011. There are now 170 registered breeds reckognised by the American Kennel Club. 


The first of the new breeds is the Entlebucher Mountain Dog. The EMD was first bred to move cows from pasture to pasture in the Swiss mountains. It is medium-sized and strongly muscled. The Entle dog is a hard worker and can excel at canine sports.

Originally breed for puffin hunting, the Norwegian Lundehund makes a loyal and playful family companion - but is not suitable for families with puffins! :)

The Xoloitzcuintli, one of the world's oldest and rarest dog breeds,  are still considered "healers" in remote Mexican and Central American villages today. The breed's name is pronounced show-low-etz-queent-lee.
