One time there was a Basenji that was the talk of the town. The shelter wouldn't tell anyone if the dog was classified as owner release or stray. There was like 3 families fighting over a French Bulldog that was at the pound, and there was a weim once, she was so beautiful, everyone wanted her too.
Other than that you see the very usual goldens, labs, gsds, pit bull mixes...

Default Wish I could post a picture of my rescue dog!

OK, I just adopted a dog-was told @ first that he's an Anatolian/Malinois mix,then told Irish Wolfhound/shepard.

Here's his description,see what YOU think!

Big,90#,outer coat is brownish/black,long belly hairs are red,long tail that curls up,LONG legs,walks with a gait like a Wolfhound,in fact kinda clumsy in front-legs cross over, short floppy ears set back,big brown eyes,nose like a lab (in profile),white chest,thick ruff-creme color,big feet,huge mouth with longest dog tongue I've ever seen & it hangs out alot.

Coat isn't wiry & it's layered/thick except underneath. Best figure out he's 2 1/2 so not certain he's full grown yet.

He's smart,very quiet,VERY strong,outlived a Pit Bull attack in shelter-no idea what damage he did in the attack. Loud bark but only with a reason. Very high energy.....

Everyone that knows this dog has a different opinion! I'm thinking with the curly tail & white chest-this dog is probably 4 different breeds.

Probably the most unusual breeds I've seen at a shelter was a Dogue de Bordeaux and a Belgian Tervuren.

Most recently, we had a Belgian Malinois turned into us. She was a guard dog failure that was given to a trainer who does drug detection. She wasn't very good at that and was very afraid of men at that point, so he brought her to us.

Aside from that, it's been the pretty standard lab/golden/gsd/pit medley.

Then again, we've got some really cute pit bull/bassets. They look like pits with tiny legs. It's adorable.

A basset Hound/Black lab it was the oddest thing I have seen, a lab head on a basset body and all black. It just was odd looking. Nice dog though.

A Shar Pei collector was busted and there were something like 20-30 Shar Peis for adoption. The people were lined up around the corner to get the dogs because they had a "story".

The neatest mix was an ACD/Shar Pei mix.

While we generally get labs, pitties, rotts, and GSD mixes, every once in awhile the shelter I volunteer at gets some pretty rare breeds.

Bar none, the oddest was what just had to be a Kai Ken (or at least a Kai cross). He was adorable, and I came very close to "accidentally taking him home).

I've seen a foxhound, a puli, and as a matter of fact, saw a Shiba for the first time in my entire volunteering "career." Disheartening news- it's clear that at least in Washington, they're getting more popular.
