New Dog Breeds
(Dog breeds of recent origin, Re-created Dog breeds, Experimental Dog breeds and
Dog breeds under development, New Dog Breeds 2011)
This page includes newly created, experimental breeds and newly recognized breeds.
Newly created breeds are all dog breeds that were recently and intentionally created since 1940, usually by the life-time work of a single breeder or a group of dedicated breeders. New breeds are created mainly for four reasons: miniaturization, breed enhancement, genetic mutation, or to adapt to the local, geographical living conditions. Some of these breeds now have fixed traits and breed true to type, while other breeds are still under development. Most of them are not yet AKC, FCI or UKC registered.
Newly recognized breeds are in fact dog breeds that have existed for centuries but only recently gained international status through official recognition by one of the major kennel clubs and dog shows. Typically these dog breeds are regional working dogs (hunting or guard dogs), which have a long history, though in a limited geographical area. Usually they are already 'unofficially' recognized as separate breeds by local authorities or canine experts. See further: Newly recognized breeds and New dog breeds 2011.
