3 New AKC recognized breeds.....

Got this in an email today:

AKC Welcomes Three New Breeds
A setter from the green fields of Ireland, a shepherd from the mountains of France, and a spitz from the cold coasts of Norway -- these are the three newest breeds in the AKC registry, bringing the AKC's total number of registered breed to 161.

The Irish Red and White Setter, a member of the Sporting Group, is both a multi-talented gun dog and a loving, loyal companion, best suited for an active family.

The Pyrenean Shepherd, a member of the Herding Group, has herded sheep in Southern France for centuries, and today excels at canine sports such as Agility.

The Norwegian Buhund, also assigned to the Herding Group, was bred to herd, hunt, and guard, and has an innate desire to please and quick aptitude to learn.

I like the norwegian buhund. I look forward to seeing these new breeds and how they do in the ring. Thanks

I was just looking them up... thank goodness the real ones don't look anywhere near as freakish as that Billy Idol wannabe on the AKC site.

The Norwegian one, and some of the Pyreneans are actually pretty cute.

On a serious note looks like it could be a fun breed though. Then again I am a sucker for herding breeds.

Re: 3 New AKC recognized breeds.....

I know it says it's not aggressive, but wonder if the behund could do schutzhund?
ok, it's related to the spitz.

"Besides working ability, Buhunds are trained to aid the hearing handicapped, perform some types of police work, and score well in obedience and agility trials. In olden times they hunted bear and wolf. Today they work with livestock and guard home and family. The Buhund is considered by many researchers to be the easiest of the Spitz breeds to train due to their innate desire to please plus a quick learning aptitude. Their Spitz independence is an asset if they have to be left alone for awhile."

They look like a mix of some terriers and Aussie or Border Collies.

You know, all I could think of when I saw it was Falcon Crest and the good ole early 80's days of the huge hair.
