Check out the previous post for the dog breed puzzle before reading the solution below.
Rat Terrier – Miscellaneous Class. Acceptance into the AKC Miscellaneous Class effective July 1, 2010. When the Board of Directors is satisfied that a breed is continuing a healthy, dynamic growth in the Miscellaneous Class, it may be admitted to registration in the Stud Book and the opportunity to compete in regular classes. (terrier designation)
English Setter – Sporting Group
Afghan Hound – Sight Hound
Harrier – Scent Hound
Newfoundland – Working Group
West Highland White Terrier – Terrier Group
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel – Toy Group
Boston Terrier – Non-Sporting Group
Canaan Dog – Herding Group
Catahoula – Non-AKC American dog breed. It is an American dog breed but is not registered with the AKC in any dog breed group – not even the Miscellaneous Class of the AKC.
Corded Poodle – Foreign Dog Breed (Non-AKC). German in descent.
Sorry if we tried to trick you a bit with the dog breeds. The Boston Terrier dog breed is not in the AKC Terrier Group and the Catahoula is not an AKC dog breed. A puzzle wouldn’t be fun if it were too easy. For more information about the various dog breed s of the world, check out ” The New Encyclopedia of the Dog” by Bruce Fogle.
