I think the rarest I've seen is a Puli at work, and I've seen a couple Komondors out and about.

Also, those Danish-Swedish Farm Dogs are cuuuute. Haven't heard of them before.

I've been really lucky with my last job and got to meet a ton of rare breeds!

Alaskan Klee Klai, Central Asian Shepherd Dog, Sarpaninac, Mayan Hunting Dog, Pumi...

I know there's more but it's too early for my brain to function.

Oh!

Azawakh and Ibizan hounds.
Irish wolfhounds, a saluki.

I think the most unusual breed I've ran into (outside of a dog show) was the time I ran into a couple with a Kooikerhondje at the feed & grain store. They were amazed when I got the breed right.

Yes, I've heard of them. But I am on the AKC FSS Facebook page. I haven't met one at a show yet, but only a matter of time.

Oh I have met a pair of Russian toys and we have a small munsterlander in our club. I've met a few mudis too through agility.

A lot of good ones! It's so neat the kinds of dogs you can run into while just out and about! I met an Alaskan Klee Kai once while walking around Portsmouth, NH. That was super neat! I also met a couple of Finnish Lapphunds/Lapinkoirat, granted one was in Finland.

I hadn't even thought of the Münsterländer being a rare breed because my coworker owns one and I see him every time I work with her! He's a gorgeous dog!


We had a customer come in with a Small Münsterländer once and my coworker almost pooped her pants, haha! She was so excited and they took pictures of their dogs together. It was pretty funny.

I'm always pleasantly surprised when people know what Saxon is. Most guess Pit Bull, but every once in a while someone asks if he's a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and it always makes me smile!

You know, I always wonder if I'll even recognize a 'rare' breed if I saw one in person mainly because I wouldn't be expecting one. I mean, if I ran across ME with Traveler I wouldn't guess Koolie. I would think a neat herding breed mix because I just wouldn't think I would run into someone with one.

One of the big things with the Sloughi was I was at a primarily AKC OB/Conformation training club so very few mixes.
