5 American Dog Breeds

July 3, 2018

There are some commonly known American puppies, like Boston Terriers and the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. There are more and we’re talking about them today!

The Chinook

Definitely one of the rarest American puppies, they were recognized by the AKC in 2010! There’s a record of only 600 of them alive in the world today. These American puppies are so rare that the Guinness Book of World Records awarded them the rarest dog three times since 1965. At one time only 125 Chinooks existed. Developed in the 1900’s, they are great with children and consider to be intelligent and calm canines.

The American Eskimo

These American puppies are either all white or white and biscuit colored and they’re members of the spitz dog family. Despite its name, however, they have absolutely no traces to the Eskimo culture. They were developed in the United States and used to travel in circuses during the latter part of the 19th century. Sometimes being confused with the Samoyed, these fluffy fellows have a thick double coat, distinctly pointy ears, and a curly tail, coming in 3 different sizes. They are a really new breed, only being recognized by the American  Kennel Club in 1994.

The Plott

Named after a German immigrant family that moved to America, this brindle colored hound dog is currently the official state dog of North Carolina. These American puppies held the job of bringing bears and boars to bays and trees. They clearly are courageous canines! They too, like the American Eskimo, are a new breed, only being recognized by the AKC in 2006.

The American Leopard Hound

Unlike the other American puppies we’ve highlighted today, the American Leopard Hound hasn’t been recognized by the AKC. They are, however, considered to be one of the oldest tree dog breeds. They have been traced back to dogs brought to the New World by Spanish conquistadors. They are highly intelligent, possessing extremely strong tracking sensibilities. They can track all types of prey to include bears, raccoons, cougars, squirrels, and bobcats for miles. They are considered to be laid-back and somewhat standoffish.

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle

The Treeing Tennessee Brindle, also known as the Cur, was founded in the 1960’s by Rev. Earl Phillips.  These high-energy American puppies have evolved from treeing dogs primarily from the Appalachian and Ozark Mountain regions. Their treeing abilities are unmatched, as they were bred to do it for hours! The Treeing Tennessee Brindle is still relatively rare and has been recorded in the AKC’s Foundation Stock Service since 1995.
