I’m discussing some unique dog breeds that you won’t see everywhere. And you’ll stand out wherever you go.But when considering whether a new dog breed is right for you, consider his needs.Dogs that were bred to work normally require more exercise and training than those bred to be companions.So without further ado, here’s a list of some rare dog breeds for your consideration.1. XoloitzcuintliXoloitzcuintli (aka Xolos) are an ancient breed of dogs from Mexico. In fact, it’s the official dog of Mexico. They are in the non sporting group in the American Kennel Club (AKC). Their unusual name is pronounced “show-low-eats-queent-lee.” They were considered sacred by the Aztecs and were often buried alongside their owners to be protectors in the afterlife. Aztec tribes cherished them for perceived healing powers, which included asthma, rheumatism, and insomnia. People even slept with them being used as heating bags.You can’t miss the distinctive look of a Xolo. The dogs have huge, prick-ears, almond-shaped eyes, a prominent muzzle, and often a hairless body. And their wrinkled forehead gives the dog the appearance of being in deep thought. The hairless variety has a close-fitting tough skin with a tuft of hair on the head and feet and tip of the tail. There is also a coated variety with a short, flat coat. Though they are generally a healthy breed, their skin is sensitive and they need to be protected from the sun. Xolos come in a variety of colors from black, gray, bronze, dark brown, and red. Modern-day Xolos are companions as well as watchdogs. They aren’t nuisance barkers, but will bark when necessary. But they are brave dogs and won’t back down if challenged.Xolos can be loyal and affectionate with their families but are wary of strangers. Because of their innate watchdog ability, they need to be socialized from puppyhood on so that they don’t become aggressive. They are calm adults. But are rambunctious, noisy, and mouthy as puppies. By about two years old, they should settle down into calm, dignified adults. They do need a fair amount of exercise to be on their best behavior. So a few walks and play sessions a day should be on your schedule. And don’t forget mental stimulation through positive reinforcement training and enrichment activities for these intelligent, inquisitive dogs.Xolos come in three sizes: a toy version (10” to 14” and 10 to 15 pounds); a miniature version (14” to 18” and 15 to 30 pounds); and a standard version (18” to 23” and 30 to 55 pounds). They are long-lived with a life expectancy of 13 to 18 years.2. Lagotto RomagnoloThe Lagotto Romagnolo originally hails from Italy. The breed is pronounced “low-got-tow ro-man-yow-low.” He was originally bred to hunt waterfowl but, since the 19th Century, has been used to sniff out an expensive delicacy, the truffle. They are in the AKC sporting group.Lagotto Romagnolos have distinctive wooly curls throughout their entire bodies, with eyebrows and a beard. It’s hair that needs to be regularly trimmed and bathed at least monthly. They come in various colors from white, off-white, brown, sable, to orange roan. They may have a teddy-bear appearance, but don’t be fooled. These are strong, tireless workers who require daily physical and mental exercise to not be destructive. So teach them obedience cues using positive reinforcement and give them a rotating variety of activity toys. Lagottos are friendly with people and other dogs. Very playful, they love to spend time with their families.The males stand at 17” to 19” at the shoulder and weigh 28.5 to 35 pounds. Females stand at 16” to 18” at the shoulder and weigh between 24 and 31 pounds. They have a long life expectancy of 15 to 17 years. 3. Dandie Dinmont TerrierDandie Dinmont Terriers originate from Scotland and were bred to hunt badgers and otters. True to their heritage, they still hunt vermin and have a strong prey drive towards little animals. They have a unique appearance, with a large head with a pouf of hair, dark eyes, long back, broad chest, and short legs. Generally healthy, they can tend to have back problems because of their structure. Though relatively small, these terriers have a big-dog personality. But they aren’t as high-strung as some terriers.Dandie Dinmonts are an intelligent, bold, independent breed who won’t back down from a challenge. They bark only when they perceive that something’s wrong. They can be good watch dogs because of their deep bark.They’re generally friendly dogs if bred, socialized, and trained properly. If properly raised, they’re not likely to develop “small-dog syndrome.” Dandie Dinmonts require training that isn’t repetitive and that’s fun or they may tune out. They require a moderate amount of daily exercise.Their pepper- or mustard-color coat requires professional plucking and some outline trimming. And daily brushing is recommended to avoid matting. They stand 8” to 11” at the shoulder and weigh from 18 to 24 pounds. They have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. 4. AzawakhThe Azawakh (pronounced “az-a’walk”) is an ancient West African sighthound that was bred to chase gazelle across vast expanses of desert. They are also used as protectors. Because they are very reserved with strangers so early and ongoing socialization is required so that the dog doesn’t become aggressive.The Azawakh are highly energetic dogs with great endurance who require a considerable amount of daily exercise. So if you’re a jogger or runner, an Azawakh may fit into your lifestyle. And they need to run free, so a fenced yard is necessary. Given enough outdoor exercise, they can be couch potatoes indoors.They have an elegant, lean appearance much as a greyhound. Their short, smooth coat that doesn’t require much grooming. And they come in a vast array of colors ranging from cream, brindle, brown, gray, and red. Males stand 25” to 29” at the shoulder and weigh between 45 and 55 pounds. Females stand between 23.5” and 27.5 “ at the shoulder and weigh between 33 and 44 pounds. They have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years.5. MudiThe Mudi (pronounced “moody”) is a farm dog originating in Hungary. They were used to herd large flocks of sheep and even as watchdogs. It’s in the herding dog class under the AKC. They are friendly and playful with people they know but independent with strangers. They need to be socialized early and on an ongoing basis to not be aloof with strangers. They will bark when necessary if something out-of-the-ordinary occurs.These are very high-energy, intelligent dogs who learn new tasks quickly and who require a lot of daily physical and mental exercise. Without a sufficient amount of exercise and companionship, Mudis can become very destructive. So make sure to train them on a daily basis. And give them some advanced training by teaching them tricks or advanced obedience or agility. They come in a wide variety of colors from black, brown, white, and gray. And their medium-length coat is wavy or curly and doesn’t require excessive care.Mudis stand between 15.5” and 18” at the shoulder and weigh between 18 and 29 pounds. They have a life expectancy of 12 to 14 years.6. LowchenHistorians debate the origin of the Lowchen, whose name means “little lion” in German.

But, if they perceive that something’s amiss, they will alert bark and make good watchdogs. They are lively, sturdy dogs who need daily walks and play. But they won’t be a running or jogging partner. Lowchen are very people-oriented and don’t do well if left alone for long periods of time. Intelligent, they love to learn. So make daily time for training. They need daily mental stimulation to reach their full potential.
