Unique Looking Dog Breeds!

Dogs as an animal are varied and unique, take a walk on the wild side with some of the stranger looking dog breeds!

Komondor. - The Komondor breed originates in Hungary. This huge canine reaches an average of thirty inches when fully grown. He looks even larger because of his huge coat of fur that just happens to be the thickest on a canine in the world today.

They’re one of the shaggiest breeds that you’ll find. Their coat looks almost matted or dreadlocked. The Komondor, also known as the Hungarian sheepdog, is a large, white-coloured Hungarian breed of livestock guardian dog with a long, corded coat.

 Sometimes referred to as 'mop dogs', the Komondor is a long-established dog breed commonly employed to guard livestock and other property.

Bedlington Terrier. - The Bedlington Terrier is named for its place of origin, which is Bedlington, Northumberland, England. The Bedlington Terrier captures your attention with his unique lamblike appearance and keeps it with his entertaining, opinionated personality.

 They are similar looking to a standard sized poodle, but the grey coat is truly as thick as sheep’s wool with tight curls that are known for being hypo allergenic.

 It’s an interesting breed with a quite bizarre appearance. The body shape looks like a sideways S with curvy contours.

Puli. – Not too far looking to the Komondor – this breed also sports dread-lock like fur  that fluffs outwards, cascading down to make him look like a barrel held up by four short legs.

These dreads are known as “cords," which start forming when a Puli puppy is nine months old. This corded, usually black coat is what makes this breed unusual. Luckily, a Puli does not shed at all, but bathing and grooming this dog is a long, complicated process.

Owners need to carefully maintain their Puli's coat and make sure the cords stay separated, or else these cords can form very large mats.

Russian Borzoi. - This breed was originally bred in Russia. The Russian Borzoi, also called the Russian Hunting Sighthound, is a sighthound hunting breed of domestic dog.

Their coat is unique in that it is sleek on top, getting thicker and curlier near the belly and legs.

They are known for their stubbornness and sense of independence. They are quite agile and love to hunt and chase small animals.

Brussels Griffon – The first thing we think when we see these pooches is Ewoks from Star Wars!  Brussels Griffons generally have ‘take-charge’ personalities, and they tend to attempt to dominate other dogs in the area.

They’re opinionated pups who assert themselves over everyone around so it’s important to begin their training from one day, and make sure that they know you’re the dominant one in the family! Despite their small size and cuddly looks, these sturdy dogs are surprisingly heavy and athletic.

Hairless Peruvian Inca Orchid. - The hairless Peruvian Inca Orchid has smooth, supple skin with a narrow patch of hair on top of the head. They may sometimes have a little fuzz on the forehead or sparse tufts of hair on the lower tail and feet.

Their skin can be solid or spotted. The Peruvian Inca Orchid breed is perhaps one of the most bizarre looking dogs on earth. This is an ancient breed that is believed to have originated in Peru around 750 AD.

They’ve been around for centuries, but the breed hasn’t travelled in mass numbers throughout the world. They are among the rarest dogs in the world. They are highly intelligent dogs that are also swift and agile.
