Coton De Tulur (no clue on spelling)
Swedish Vallhund

And I saw a dog that looked like a PyrShep, but didn't talk to the owners.

Hmmm, that's kinda hard because it varies so much by area.

I've met a couple Sloughis, Salukis and Ibizans, though the latter two aren't as rare.

A few English Shepherds. A Leonberger and a Carolina Dog...ummm I'm really having trouble figuring out what's rare or not

Oh, and Koolies! I've met a few of those!

I've seen pretty much every AKC breed and then some. That's what happens if you end up at enough dog shows, lol.

I see things like Canaan dogs a few times a month. Have met roughly 15 pyrsheps, 5 Cirneco dell'etna, Danish Swedish Farmdog, several mudi/croatians, lots of pumi, etc. Welsh sheepdogs are extremely rare in the US but I have met 5 that do dog sports around here. My trainer has one. My other trainer has a lacy, which aren't super common though I saw them a lot in Texas.

I guess the rarest would be some New Guinea Singing Dogs and I didn't even see them at a dog event!

I met a pair of French Spaniels at my dog park once. I was like... What... what ARE those glorious creatures? aheh.

Then I had to go home and google them because I had no idea they even existed prior to that moment.

Spinone Italiano? Dutch Shepherd? First 2 that came to mind that aren't "common".

There was an epagneul breton that went to the park in Texas. Not sure if that counts but I think they are a separate breed from their american counterparts.

I've met a Petit Griffon Basset Vendeen, a Spinone Italiano, a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, a Leonberger, and some Kelpies (maybe not rare, but uncommon here!). We also have a Potcake that comes into work but I think that's probably more of a type than a breed. I've also owned, and known a bunch of other Swedish Vallhunds.

Now I have a Koolie and an English Shepherd!

Not counting dog shows, I've met a briard and spinoni. I know LostandConfused's English Shepherd, Hudson. I know a basenji who does nosework, and two Catahoula leopard dogs (rare up here anyway). Welshies are rare and I've met a bunch of those. That's about it. Everybody else around here seems to have labs, GSDs, huskies, or mutts with a few herding or sporting dogs thrown in.

Probably Azawakh. Either that or Portuguese Podengo Medio.

Several Filas. Several Cane Corsi. Ambers Beezer.

I think I've seen a Podengo once, because I was with a Chazzer and that word was DEFINITELY used and I had no idea what it meant. So that doesn't count.
