Canines, or domestic dogs, are some of the greatest pets in the entire world. There are so many different kinds that people keep as pets nowadays within their homes, but some breeds are far more rare than others. This has led to a very high, very pricey demand for certain breeds of domesticated canines. So, what makes a dog so rare? Well, it can come down to highly selective breeding, geographic location, and any other manner of reasoning set down by a dog breeder. Here are ten of the 10 rarest dog breeds in the world.
The Catalburun is a breed of Turkish Pointer, and can be identified by their split-nose, which is a known characteristic. Severe inbreeding is said to be the reasoning behind the odd-looking nose. These canines are known for their hunting prowess, though.
The Mudi is a Hungarian breed of canine known for its herding superiority. They are distinguishable by soft, curly coats of fur and smooth faces. The Mudi also tend to be a mid-sized breed of dog, and have recently been getting more popular.
