Your Rare Breed Puppy

Some puppies that are considered rare breeds are quite popular as pets.

Brought to you by Training your Puppy in 5 Minutes

Aside from the breeds classified in the seven AKC groups, there are many rare breeds known in the US and around the world. In fact, some of the breeds that are considered rare breeds are quite popular as pets, with devoted followings. Of course, these breeds do not fall into one category, and it is impossible to make generalizations about them. However, when researching breeds, you may find a rare-breed gem that's perfect for you and your lifestyle.

Willa is a Chinese Crested Hairless, 7 yrs. old. I have in my 65 yrs. owned lots of different breeds but Willa is the gentlest, sweetest of them all. Quick to learn and eager to please. Temperament is great but don't fall into the trap that no hair means no grooming, no fleas. They do get fleas and ticks. They suffer from skin problems, including acne as pups, and can get sunburned, poison ivy, etc. Grooming wise she has been more work that the any dog I've had. But soooo worth the effort!

We have an 11 year old Chinese Foo and he is a great protector and guard of the home and family but great with kids. Lovable and playful but not overly demanding. Always gets comments because of his handsome appearance. Highly recommend for pet.

I am getting 2 puppies from the same liter. Rat terriers. Should they be kenneled together to keep each other company when I am not at home?
