    Just wondering what unusual breeds people like?

    I have always been taken with Wetterhouns, and when I do eventually get my smallholding I may look into importing one.

    I quite like the look of Tibetan Mastiffs as well, although they are huge with too much hair for me,

    Keeshonds. Grew up with one (not this one!). I was tempted when we were getting the first two pups but don't think I'd cope with the grooming and the dog would get filthy at the yard.

    I would LOVE a xoloitzcuintli but OH doesnt like them :(

    And he has been TOLD we will be having a Central Asian Ovcharka one day :p
    Ive been researching both breeds for a few years now and I think he would take to a CAO better than a xolo so fingers crossed :D

    Yes, they are my dogs - Baggio and Gabby - but I would also like another :p I have a grey bergamasco girl (Calli) as well. This is her on a walk:

    Surprisingly, their coats are easy to look after because it all happens on its own - we don't do anything to make it grow like that. Have a read of this Bergamasco - Pet Encyclopedia which I wrote for the pf Pet Encyclopedia - it tells you all about the breed :thumbup:

    A Xolo all the way!


    ETA: Do Leos count as an "unusual breed"?
