Miscellaneous Dog Group
Of The AKC
Dog breeds that are admitted to the Miscellaneous Dog Group of the AKC, more or less go through an
evaluation period while they are working toward full AKC recognition. During this review time it is
determined if these "hopefuls" will be granted full registration status and become part of a standard group.
In the meantime, breeds accepted into this class are permitted to compete and earn titles in Companion Events and
also some Performance Events, but it is not until they are admitted to the official Stud Book that they
can compete in regular classes and start earning championship points.
Once a breed achieves official status, they are assigned to a breed group based on factors such as their characteristics, temperament, origins, purpose and history.
Factors that influence official recognition into an established AKC class, relate to the indication that
there is progressive development, activity and substantial interest in the breed. Also, that breeding activity
and awareness of the breed is expanding through the determined efforts of an established parent club.
The table below indicates the breeds currently in the Miscellaneous Dog Group, also known as the
miscellaneous class of the AKC. This group represents but a small fraction of the total number of other
purebread dogs that exist throughout the world. It is interesting to note that the origins of those presently
listed come from far and wide, including the countries of Ireland, France, Italy, the United States and Germany,
to name a few.
