I haven't come across too many rare breeds. But I am purchasing a pup that is (to me), quite rare, possibly next summer (if there is a brindle male in the litter). If not I am waiting for another 2 years What is this breed you are asking? A Perro de Presa Canario.

At our dog park there are 2 Beaucherons and a Polish Lowland Sheepdog. Those are the rarest we've come across.

You've met a Lundehund?? They are my secret obsession! My father does a lot of traveling in Norway and Sweden, and I always try to get him to bring me one back. So...what was it like? I've actually heard almost nothing but bad things about them as pets. Still obsessed though

At least on Chaz, Manchester Terriers seem to be kind of rare....I even heard from a dog person in Manchester England who has never seen one in person LOL! Now I get to see one everyday at home Definitely the only one in the neighborhood though...

I had a neighbor with a Basenji, a farmer with a Komondor, a Ridgeback, a Crested (who was nowhere near as cute as Toby!), and of course, a Fila or two

I've also run across a few Irish Wolfhounds and a couple of Shar Pei, but it's hard to really consider those rare breeds even though you really don't see them around here.

Jindos have actually become quite popular around here- which is very exciting. Only a few years ago, most people around here would've thought a "Jindo" was some kind of a martial art, now I know of at least 4 or 5 that live around my neighborhood!

I also am nearly positive I saw a Kai Ken, or some mix thereof in the animal shelter I volunteer at. I would've LOVED to have taken this boy home, but as my school has yet to okay dogs living in university-sponsered apartments, I couldn't.

Aussie_Red! I saw a sharpai (sp) yesterday!!!

I was in a cab, and was thinking to myself now what is that, I knew it was Japanese/Chinese but couldn't think of the name, the cab driver's the one that told me it was a Sharpey.. He said it was a Japanese fighting dog.

That's as "rare" as it gets in my town. Other than that: Portuguese Water Spaniel (?) just because that's one of my coaches "breeds", Nova Scoatian Duck Tolling Retriever (?) there's one in Hades class and a Presa. All of these "rare" breeds are at doggy school. Never encountered anything "rare" on the street, other than that Sharpai yesterday!
