The Rarest Dog Breed In The World

A lot of dog breeds are contenders for “world’s
rarest.” While the Otterhound, the Phu Quoc Ridgeback,
and the Lowchen all have numbers that could potentially qualify them as the world’s rarest
dog, there are a few out there that are even more rare. Ultimately, though, the title comes down to
who you ask. A strong contender for the world’s rarest
dog breed is the Cretan Hound, which is thought to be one of Europe’s oldest hunting breeds. This dog is rare not just because it’s low
in numbers, but because it’s rather jealously guarded by breeders and owners. “You want my property, you can’t have it.” According to Only Crete, this breed has been
mostly isolated on the island for thousands of years. Even today, breeders don’t like to sell Cretan
Hounds to outsiders, so you won’t find many of them in other parts of the world. They also tend to keep the best examples of
the breed hidden away, and all but the best males are neutered, which means the breed
has remained pretty small in number and isolated from outside influence. That’s one of the reasons why you won’t find
this dog in an American Kennel Club book. The AKC has yet to recognize it due to insignificant
numbers in North America. The Cretan Hound is what’s known as a “sighthound,”
which is a type of hunting dog that relies on speed and sight rather than scent, though
enthusiasts say it also has a pretty decent nose, which makes it ideal for hunting hares
and rabbits. The ideal Cretan Hound is slender with a long,
elegant face and long ears, and it has a distinctive curly tail. Both males and females can weigh between 45
and 65 pounds. If you’re lucky, you might see a Cretan Hound
at an international dog show in Athens, but for the most part, Cretan hounds stay on the
island of Crete. Chances are, you’ve never heard of the Swedish
Stabyhoun, which number around 7,000, according to the AKC. As for their personality and appearance, they’re
described as gentle farm dogs raised to independently hunt moles and rabbits who make great friends
for the whole family. In fact, their interesting name is Dutch for
“Stand-by-me-dog,” which is a pretty good indication of their loyalty. They’re a great “all-around” dog, qualified
for hunting, pointing and retrieving, and they’re very inquisitive in nature. Physically, Stabyhouns are a little longer
than they are tall, with mostly long coats. If you consider owning a Staby, keep in mind
they will be expensive to buy, on top of being a high maintenance breed. Among the reasons not to own a Staby include
their stubbornness, desire to dig, their Velcro-like nature to stand right by you, their intelligence,
and sensitivity. While none of these are necessarily negative
traits, you should be sure you’re in a situation where you can devote a lot of time and energy
to your fluffy companion. At the end of the day, dogs are dogs. All are special regardless of their breed. As long as you love them, no dog can replace
your dog, so don’t worry so much about breeds, and try to adopt before you buy. The New Guinea Highland Wild Dog is a primitive
canine which was thought to have long been extinct until 2016. According to the New Guinea Highland Wild
Dog Foundation, the first dog of the breed to be seen in over 50 years actually found
humans, rather than vica versa, having followed a researcher who was looking for evidence
of the breed’s existence. Its native New Guinea name means “dog that
sings,” because of its unique aspiration among dogs to audition for American Idol. “You’re going to Hollywood!” No, actually, it’s because these dogs can
hit frequencies that match birds, humpback whales, and Mariah Carey. Though there have been efforts to cross-breed
and domesticate this dog into a more housebroken “New Guinea Singing Dog,” there may be as
little as 200 or fewer of those remaining, and presumably far fewer Highland Wild Dogs. Keep your fingers crossed for the breed, because
some believe it is a missing link between prehistoric canines and the dogs we know today. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Grunge videos about your favorite
