  3. Many of the dogs listed on this page can be registered through the American Kennel Club.  But some are so rare in the U.S. that, although they are purebred, they have not as of yet been entered into this registry.  Around the world, however, they may be much more common.

    We continue to add to this small dog breed list as we research new breeds, so check back often -- your perfect breed might just be here waiting for you. Know of a breed we forgot?  Let us know what it is by contacting me.
