This is the official 201st breed of dog recognised by the American Kennel Club. The organization announced that this breed is now eligible for thousands of U.S. dog shows. Lancashire heelers historically helped on farm as they could drive cattle and rout rats. These beloved dogs are short-legged, long-bodied and active! Their owners say they sometimes pull back their lips in a move that resembles a human smile.

2022 – Bracco Italiano

The AKC are thrilled to welcome our 200th breed to the registry! Generally, the Bracco Italiano is a strong, active, and sturdy breed of dog. Thus, they would make a great companion for active families. This breed loves people and would be best suited for a family that can give it the love and attention it deserves.

Evidently, the mudi is an amazing family dog. The breed is very active and intelligent, they love tasks, even if that is simply watching over children playing in the sunshine.
