However there are some people in the world today who love dogs very dearly and are on a mission to save them from being extinct.

    Here is a list of rare dogs, but there are a lot more, some of which you may have heard of before.

They were even removed from their original habitat, however they did not adapt to the change which resulted in numerous health problems. They could weigh over 160lbs. Otterhounds can be traced back to the 1100’s century. This breed derived its name because they were used in packs to hunt otter. Only 350 are believed to be in North America.
