Through many years of natural and artificial selection, we’ve found ourselves with hundreds of unique dog breeds each with their own temper and looks.

Here are just a few of the rarer and lesser-known dog breeds, according to the American Kennel Club. 

Pyrenean shepherds are energetic dogs.

These shaggy dogs are descendants from the ancient dogs of the Pyrenees Mountains. Originally bred to be sheepherders, these energetic dogs come with two different coats of fur: rough-faced and smooth-faced.

Catahoula leopard dogs don’t look like any other dog breeds.

The only dogs originating from Louisiana, their name Catahoula is a Choctaw word meaning „sacred lake.“ These astounding looking dogs earn the leopard part of their name from the variety of spots dotting their coats. They come in a wide array of colors and are sure to turn heads if you’re walking with one down the street.
