Default Most unusual breed you've ever seen in a shelter

In the course of looking for a dog, I've been astonished to see some fairly rare breeds in the local shelters. Of course, two of the shelters I was visiting were in an affluent suburb where status symbol one-upmanship was the name of the game. The three that I remember best are a Clumber Spaniel, a Bouvier des Flandres, and a Briard.

We get a lot of the rarer LGDs and herding breeds here, due to the large number of people with livestock in the area.
I've seen a Central Asian Ovtcharka (purebred, fully trained livestock guardian - turned in by an elderly man who had to sell his small ranch) along with one of the corded breeds, Puli I believe. I remember a Pyrenean Shepherd, a Carolina Dog and a Jindo. Most memorable ones were both dogs that I fostered - one was a Karelian Bear Dog and the other was most likely an uncropped Beauceron.

I have mostly seen gsds / mixes, rottweilers / mixes, pit bulls /mixes... etc.

And I can't remember what the oddest breeds are... for a shelter is.

But the oddest looking dog i have ever SEEN was a pekeginese/pit bull cross that lived in my last neighborhood.

The most unusual one I saw was a corgi/rotti mix. I wanted to adopt her, but I didnt work out.

If we're talking mixes, the oddest was definitely a dog that looked like a hairless Pekingese. Smushed-up face, feet that faced east-west, huge shoulders, and almost no hair. So ugly, it was almost endearing.
