There are many rare breeds around the world. Some are rare in the United States only because not many dogs have been imported. My interest was piqued when I discovered how many rare breeds were developed and are still being developed in the US. Most are not recognized by the American Kennel Club although some, like the Chinook, have been recently admitted to the AKC but are still quite rare and not well-known outside of their local area. These are just a few of the rare dog breeds that you can find in the US.
