This large, athletic pup was first bred to hunt elk, boar, and bear, but his alert and protective nature also made the this breed a popular choice as a guard dog. For hundreds of years, the Akita was referred to simply as “snow country dogs.” Named after a wintry, mountain region in Japan, this dog has webbed toes that helps him walk on snow by distributing  weight more evenly. For many years, ownership was restricted to the aristocracy and these canines were not allowed outside of Japan. The Akita fell out of favor over time, but it was saved from extinction in the 1800's as part of a Japanese effort to save their native dogs. Today the breed is considered a national treasure of Japan. Hellen Keller, a famed American activist and writer, is usually credited with importing the first Akita to the U.S. in 1937. Helen Keller’s dogs were the only ones of their kind in America for many years while the U.S. fought Japan during World War II. After the war, relationships were established with Japanese breeders, and more were imported to the United States. The AKC recognized the Akita in 1955, and the re-classified them as a Working breed in 1972.

Bichon Frise

If you’re looking for a Bichon Frise puppy for sale, you’ll be impressed with this dog’s pedigree. They are among the group of little white dogs that have been treasured by aristocrats for hundreds of years. For millennia, these prized pups of royals were used for bartering with sailors throughout Italy, Malta, and The Canary Islands. This bartering was probably one of the ways these handsome dogs made their way to France and Spain. History shows that European nobles began owning Bichon Frise sometime during the 13th century. During the Renaissance, affluent merchants also began to covet the prestigious breed. Artists started painting aristocrats and wealthy merchants with their pups as early as the 1500's. By the 1800's, the Bichon Frise was no longer coveted by royalty but had found a home among street performers, and in circuses and fairs throughout Europe. After World War I, many American soldiers brought puppies back as pets, and this breed started appearing in America. It wasn’t until 1933 that a Frenchwoman, Madam Abadie of Steren Vor Kennels, recorded breed standards for the Bichon Frise. In 1943, they become recognized by the French Kennel Club.   In the 1950's, a group of Americans began formally promoting the Bichon Frise and started breeding pups to meet the French breed standards. These dogs were recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1973.

These working dogs were famous for hunting smaller burrow dwellers such as rabbits.

French Bulldog

Looking for French Bulldog puppies for sale? This pup is a descendant of the robust and athletic fighting dogs popular in England in the 1600's and 1700's. Over the centuries, the dogs were bred for different traits, and various breeds emerged. The French bulldog was bred to be smaller, livelier, and gentle. They became popular with the working class, including British lace makers. When British lace makers migrated to France during the Industrial Revolution, the French become enchanted with their unusual pets. The popularity of French Bulldogs grew among shopkeepers, and the pups were often featured in advertisements of the era. Upper-class Frenchmen also began coveting the little dogs, while the British remained indifferent to their appeal. As a result, the French adopted this smaller bulldog as one of their own. The French formalized breed standards to include a compact body and straight legs, without the extreme under-jaw of the English breed. Ears could be either be erect “bat ears’ and floppy “rose” ears.   Wealthy Americans visiting Paris also fell in love with the breed, and soon “Frenchies” started showing up at Westminster in 1896 (two years before the AKC recognized the breed in 1898 as a Non-Sporting breed.) Like many European breeds, Frenchies fell sharply in popularity during the World Wars. At one point, there were less than 1,000 in America. It wasn’t until the 1980's that the breed rebounded. Dedicated dog owners began successfully promoting their attributes, and today the breed enjoys widespread popularity.

Newfoundland

If you are looking for Newfoundland puppies for sale, you have chosen a dog with a long history. The Newfie has a long and somewhat uncertain history. These dogs most likely originated from a mix of fishing and hunting dogs brought to the island of Newfoundland, in Canada, by French and Portuguese fisherman and explorers starting as early as the 15th and 16th century. When talking about the origin of this dog, breeds such as the black St. Hubert’s Hound, the Great Pyrenees, the Tibetan Mastiff, the Viking’s Black Bear dog, and the St. John’s Water Dog are often mentioned. This strong and hardy working dog is exceptionally athletic in the water. They have been used as a fishing dog to help haul in nets and to haul carts on land and are also used as water rescue dogs. On land, these loyal giants have been used to protect farms and livestock. A Newfie was famously chosen as the companion dog for the Lewis and Clark expedition. These dogs were so popular in the 1800's that they were chosen as pets for four 19th century presidents, Buchanan, Grant, Hayes, and Garfield. This dog loves children and can be protective of them. Maybe that’s why “Nana,” the dog nanny in Peter Pan, was a Newfoundland. The breed was recognized by the AKC in 1886 and grouped as Working.

Pembroke Welsh Corgi

The playful, stout Pembroke Welsh Corgi is beloved for his merry disposition and his expressive face. This ancient breed can be traced back as far as the 1100's. In fact, the name “Corgi” might be attributed to the Celtic word for “dog” (corgi). The agile, courageous dog was originally bred for herding sheep and cattle. The Corgi’s size made him ideal for working with cattle. They could nip at the livestock’s heels while avoiding kicks. Before 1933, the Corgi was a rather obscure breed. But in 1933 King George VI (then Duke of Windsor) gave the Princess Elizabeth a Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy, triggering an explosion in the breed’s popularity, which continues to this day. The tailless Pembroke Welsh Corgi is similar to the long-tailed Cardigan Welsh Corgi. They were considered the same breed until 1934 when the AKC recognized them as a separate breeds. This breed was recognized by the AKC in 1934 and grouped as Herding.

Shiba Inu

Looking for a Shina Inu puppy for sale? They are an ancient Japanese breed, used as a hunting dog in central Japan as far back as 300 B.C. "Shiba Inu" translates to Branch Dog in Japanese. Some believe the name came from its similarity of the coat to the red brushwood trees in Japan. This compact, little dog was probably used as a hunting dog for smaller game. They were recognized as the official national dog of Japan, and the breed was declared a national treasure in 1936. But this recognition did not stabilize the breed’s population. The number of Shiba Inus plummeted after the destruction in Japan caused by World War II. Their numbers fell further in the 1950's after a distemper outbreak. To make the breed more vigorous, Japanese breeders worked to intermixed different regional strains. This dog does not bark but instead produced a high-pitched scream. They are loyal to their family and aloof with strangers.   The first Shiba dogs entered the United States in the 1950s, but the breed only gained recognition by the American Kennel Club in 1993.

In 1925 a team of Siberian Huskies puppies became famous in America for heroically delivering life-saving medicine to Nome. One of the sled drivers took his famous team of Huskies to New England for exposition races, which led to the Husky gaining a devoted following in the lower 48 states. The AKC recognized this breed as part of the working group in 1930. Today these sled dogs prized pets, easily identified by their distinctive markings and striking eye color.

Yorkshire Terrier

Looking for Yorkshire Terrier puppies for sale? Like all terriers, these puppies were first bred to control pests and vermin. The silky Yorkshire Terrier was known by a few different names, including the Broken Haired Scotch Terrier and the Toy Terrier, before the Yorkshire region claimed them as their own in 1874. These courageous ratters were bred to be small enough to fit into the nooks and cracks in mines and mill buildings of 19th-century Britain.

While originally prized to control pests, British hunters soon discovered that Yorkies were small enough to carry in their pockets, making then a convenient helper to hunt down rabbits, foxes, and even badgers.

In 1872, this tiny terrier began showing up in America. By 1885, the AKC officially recognized the breed and Grouped as Toy.
