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.

Icelandic Sheepdog Irish Red and White Setter Leonberger Norwegian Buhund
