Top 10 rare dog breeds

When it comes to selecting a breed of dog, there are countless options to choose from. You are probably already familiar with some of the most popular breeds like the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle – but what about some of the less common options? There are purebred dogs out there that stay off of our radars. You may know someone who thinks that their pooch is mixed with one of these rare dog breeds, but they don’t know for sure. It was hard to narrow this list down, but here are our picks of 10 rare dog breeds (Note: For this list, rare means these breeds are hard to find in North America or that may be indigenous to a region we normally don’t visit. As well, a rare breed, for this list, is still in existence and carries a full purebred line).  (Photo credit: David d’O/Flickr)
