10 DOG BREEDS YOU NEVER KNEW EXISTED

|

Neapolitan Mastiff

Hulking. Wrinkly. Adorable. This monstrosity of a dog, which can weigh in at as much as 150 pounds, is a gentle giant.

Bedlington Terrier

If a whippet and a poodle had a love child, it might well be the Bedlington terrier.

Peruvian Inca Orchid

These often hairless pups are the national dog of Peru.

Caucasian Ovcharka

You don’t want to mess with this beastly mix of muscle and fur. Often called upon to guard livestock or work as watchdogs, the Caucasian Ovcharka can weigh as much as 170 pounds.

Komondor

You’ve probably seen a komondor, but chances are you didn’t know it by name. Covered in stringy, mop-like fur, this unmistakable breed is loving and big on personality.

Swedish Vallhund

If a corgi and a Shiba Inu had a love child … oh, we went there once already? Oops. Let’s try again. This stout breed is best known for being fixtures on Viking longships more than 1,000 years ago. Not coincidentally, they’re also known by the nickname Viking Dog.

Otterhound

Bred to hunt its namesake sea creature, otterhounds are expert swimmers with seemingly infinite energy.

Karelian Bear Dog

This striking breed lives up to its name. Bred for big game hunting, they are independent and boast a fighting spirit.

Catalburun

This split-nosed, big-headed dog is one of the rarest breeds in the world – so rare it’s not even recognized by the AKC.

Lagotto Romagnolo

These adorable curly-haired dogs hails from Italy and are known for sniffing out truffles. Lagotto Romagnolo is a working breed through and through.
