Dog Breeds Not Popular in USA But Immensely Popular Worldwide

Cirneco dell’Etna

The Cirneco dell'Etna is an old hound dog from the island of Sicily that is a classic in Italy. It is said that circnecos are strong and athletic, and that they can search for small prey on rough ground. As of 2015, the AKC recognized the dog.

Finnish Spitz

This red-gold hunting breed is Finland's national dog, with thousands of years of history. Active, fearless, and sociable, these medium-sized dogs need exercise and a fenced yard. AKC-recognized in 1960, first competed in 1988.

Cesky Terrier

The Cesky, often known as the Bohemian terrier, is smart and trainable. The pronunciation is “chess-kee,” which implies Czech. It's unnecessary to mention their country of origin. Acknowledged by AKC in 2011.

American Foxhound

In the early American colonies, English foxhounds were crossed with Irish and French hounds to adapt to the terrain and hunting circumstances. Honored by the AKC in 1886.

Bergamasco Shepherd

This dog is famous for its natural dreadlocks, which keep it warm! Bergamascos, ancient Italian sheepdogs, herd well. 2015 AKC recognition.

English Foxhound

English foxhounds, unlike their American cousins, are petite, robust hunting dogs with soft dispositions and athleticism. These foxhounds were bred to run for kilometers (marathon fox hunts—who knew?) Acknowledged by AKC in 1909.
