Cesky Terrier

The Cesky Terrier, is a well-muscled
and short-legged hunting dog that was
developed to be worked in packs in its
native Czech Republic. The Cesky sports
a soft, long, silky coat in shades of gray
from charcoal to platinum and has a
lean body and graceful movement. They
are reserved towards strangers, loyal
to their owners, but ever keen and alert
during the hunt. They are an active
breed and, like most terriers, love to dig.

American English Coonhound

The American English Coonhound
evolved from Virginia Hounds, descendants
of English Foxhounds. Today’s
American English Coonhound is a
wide-ranging hunter that possesses
tremendous speed and endurance, and
excellent voice. A strong and graceful
athlete, he needs regular exercise to stay
in peak shape. The breed is pleasant,
alert, confident, and sociable with both
humans and dogs.


The Xoloitzcuintli, or “show-low,” as
it is commonly called, is the national
dog of Mexico. Previously known as
the Mexican Hairless, it comes in three
sizes as well as a coated version. The
breed descends from hairless dogs
prized by the Aztecs and revered as
guardians of the dead. Over 400 years
later, these dogs were still to be found
in the Mexican jungles. Shaped by
the environment rather than by man,
their keen intelligence, trainability, and
natural cleanliness have made them a
unique and valued pet today.

Entlebucher Moutain Dog

The Entlebucher Mountain Dog is a
herding dog native to Switzerland, and
the smallest of the four Swiss breeds.
Purpose and heritage have resulted in an
unusually intense bonding between the
Entlebucher and his master. Prized for his
work ethic and ease of training, he can
transform from a high-spirited playmate
to a serious, self-assured dog of
commanding presence. It should not be
considered a breed for the casual owner.
The guardian traits of this breed require
thorough socialization and the Entlebucher
will remain an active, energetic dog
for his entire lifetime.

Norwegian Lundehund

The Norwegian Lundehund spent centuries
on the rocky cliffs and high fields of
arctic Norway hunting and retrieving puffin
birds, an important meat and feather
crop for local farmers. Uniquely equipped
for their task, this little Spitz-type dog has
at least six toes on each foot for stability
in the near vertical environs where puffins
nest. A flexible skeletal structure enables
the dog to squirm out of tight spots
or spread-eagle to prevent slips and
falls. Today, puffin birds are protected
so the “Puffin Dog” has taken up a new
role as an alert, cheerful, and somewhat
mischievous family companion.

Finnish Lapphund

The Finnish Lapphund is a reindeer
herding dog from the northern parts of
Scandinavia. The breed is thought to
have existed for hundreds, if not thousands
of years, as the helper dog of the
native tribes. In modern day, Lapphunds
are popular as family pets in their native
Finland. They are devoted to their family,
friendly with all people, highly intelligent
and eager to learn. The dogs have
expressive faces and a thick, dense coat
that comes in a variety of colours. They
are strong but very agile.
