Six Amazing Breeds of Dogs That Are Not Talked About Enough

There are hundreds of dog breeds in existence, all with different qualities and traits. Realistically, despite similarities, there are no two identical dogs. Each dog has its own personality and mind which means each breed of dog brings something unique to the table. In this blog we are going to “dig” into a few breeds that make great family pets despite not being talked about that often.


The Puli is a very old Hungarian dog breed that dates all the way back to the Middle Ages.  Many believe that this breed is a direct ancestor of the Poodle. Around World War II this breed was nearly extinct but was revived by hobbyists.  The Puli makes a great family pet and has many desirable qualities. It should be noted that their coats are high -maintenance and do require work to keep looking their best.


The Schipperke has a similar appearance to the Sheepdog and was originally bred to work on barges in Belgium canals in the 1800’s. This is a working breed of dog that has high energy levels and likes to be on the move. This breed of dog has transitioned into a very well-liked family dog who has a loving and caring personality. The Schipperke makes a great fit for families that want the heart of a big dog but in a smaller package.


The Basenji is considered to be one of the most primitive and oldest breeds of dog in existence. This dog has been traced back to pyramids in Egypt. A great trait of this breed is that they are not known to overly bark, however, can be heard yodeling at times. One of the most unusual facts about this breed is that, like wolves and another primitive dog called a dingo, female Basenjis only come into heat once a year, unlike all other domestic breeds that come into heat two times a year. The Basenji is a loving and social dog that makes a great family pet.

Brussels Griffon

Also known as the bearded dog, the Brussels Griffon is known for its long hair around its snout and for its large expressive eyes. This is a playful and active breed of dog that has a very outgoing personality. They are also considered to be hypoallergenic which is great for those of us who suffer from allergies. This breed also does well in families that have children thanks to their warm demeanors.

Chinese Crested

Many experts believe the Chinese Crested is essentially a smaller version of the African hairless dog. Chinese merchants acquired African hairless dogs on their trips to the continent and bred them to be smaller, producing the Chinese Crested. They originally were known for their abilities to hunt rats on ships but have evolved into a great family pet. This breed has a double coatthat tends to be soft, silky and straight, although some may have curly hair. Both the Hairless and Powderpuff shed very little, and generally makes a great pet for people with allergies.

Bedlington Terrier

The Bedlington Terrier, also known as the Bedlington, is a playful and active dog breed that is known for its loyalty. They are also very friendly dogs who quickly warm up to visitors and new people. This breed emerged in the parish of Bedlington in Northumberland, England in the early 19th century. They were originally called the Rothbury Terrier, after the namesake district on the English coast. The Bedlington Terrier is also considered to be hypoallergenic, which is a big plus for those who suffer from allergies.

All of these unique dogs have a lot to offer. They make great family pets and despite being different in many ways they all share on quality. They will all win your heart in no time at all!
