New Dog Breeds Created: The American English Coonhound Is Approved

by | 9th, June 2011

FINALLY, the American Kennel Club has bowed to pressure and labelled that dog a American English Coonhound. It is “comparable to a well-conditioned athlete“. (Time to let dogs compete in the Olympics, then?)

Also now officially rubber stamped into existence are the Finnish Lapphund and Cesky Terrier. These are added to the 164 approved breeds. The rules on being an official breed are here.

But why? Why would anyone create a new breed of dog. Is it all about winning prizes..?
