8. French Bulldog
Also referred to as a Frenchie, this relative of the English Bulldog originates from across the channel. The French Bulldog breed dates back to the 1800s and are a cross between bulldogs and ratters in Paris. In the year 1835, bull-baiting, a blood sport, was outlawed. With the breeding of the French Bulldog, their use changed from being more of a sport dog to one whose role filled that of a companion dog. As far as their temperament goes, they not only like to be around humans, but they require the close proximity as French bulldogs are prone to separation anxiety.
7. Akita Inu
Don’t be fooled by their soft and puffy appearance. Akita Inus grow to be quite large dogs in adulthood, even if akita puppies look more like exaggerated toys. The Akita was originally bred for guarding those of royal and noble status back in feudal Japan. They may be cute, but they also do not back down from challenges and were used in hunting deer, wild boar, and even black bears. They grow to be over 2 feet and at the most weigh 130 pounds. They’re also known to be fiercely loyal dogs and act as guardians, often wary when it comes to strangers. And if you see your akita licking itself like a cat, that’s totally normal.
6. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is considered a toy dog, with origins from the United Kingdom. These small spaniels grow up to 13 inches in height at most and are known for their silky coats with the most common being black, tan, white, and chestnut. Their name is regal, but don’t expect them to be super stuck up. Actually, this breed of dog is considered kind and affectionate in temperament and are known to get along with other animals. However, if you happen to have enough money, anywhere from $1,800 to $3,500, you also need to make sure you’re going to have a lot of time to spend on them since they require lots of attention from their human counterparts.
With legs that long and hair that billows in the wind, the sight of the Saluki is both an odd one as well as majestic. They can also referred to as Persian Greyhounds, with puppies of this breed costing around $2,500. The Saluki is considered a graceful sight hound, and over long distances, can reach speeds of up to 42.8 miles or 68.8 kilometers per hour--which is faster than the more common Greyhound. Their feet are rather heavily padded, which strengthens their endurance when running as the pads absorb impact.
4. Pharaoh Hound
Despite its name, Pharaoh hounds do not originate from Ancient Egypt and were so named since they greatly resemble the dogs in Ancient Egyptian imagery. In actuality, the Pharaoh Hound is a breed of Maltese, which are the national dog of Malta and were traditionally bred for hunting rabbits. From the way these dogs stand, you can already see that they’re rather independent creatures and do not thrive on working alongside humans since they were bred to to think on their own. Even though they’re super intelligent, Pharaoh hounds are also known to be rather stubborn.
These small dogs are also known as little lion dogs due to their long, mane-like hair. Some considered the Lowchen a toy dog and only reach heights of up to 14 inches. At one point in time, they were one of the rarest dogs in the world, their population dwindling to just 65 registered dogs as late as 1973. Though there’s much more today than there were a few decades ago, their registered population count is only a couple hundred. Breeding history for the lowchen dates all the way back to 1422, and you see they were popular dogs amongst royalty in Europe as you see them appear in lots of old paintings of the elite. Today, purchasing one of these dogs could cost you anywhere from $5,000 to even up to $10,000.
As fluffy as new fallen snow, introducing, the Samoyed, a large herding dog that’s typically colored all white. They’re large creatures, reaching up to 21 inches as females and 24 inches tall when it comes to males. A samoyed’s coat is double layered and is named after the Samoyedic people of Siberia. Nowadays, a samoyed puppy can cost anywhere from as low as $675 to up to $1,5000. How their owners could distinguish them from the layers of snow that fall in Siberia is a mystery. Sure, they’re big, but samoyeds are also said to be friendly, almost too friendly, which does not make them the ideal guard dog.
