Crufts 2020 is almost here! And while we're excited to see our favourite dogs on display, it's also a chance to shine the spotlight on some lesser-known breeds.
By, 2 Mar 2020
So here are six rare breeds to look out for at this year Crufts!
#1 The Komondor
You could easily confuse the Komondor with a walking mop, but there's nothing domestic about these rare pooches. They were bred to guard livestock and love the outdoor life.
#2 The Leonberger
There are the big dogs, and then there's the Leonberger! This jumbo-sized dog is a natural protector and incredibly loving towards its favourite humans. They also make a great cuddle buddy!
#3 Black and Tan Coonhound
The Black and Tan Coonhound made its first Crufts appearance at the 2019 show. Let's hope this handsome breed shows up again this year.
#4 Sealyham Terrier
Less than 300 Sealyham Terrier puppies are registered each year, but that hasn't stopped this little pup form making a big impact on the dog show world. They've taken home plenty of prizes, including best in show at Crufts 2009.
With only 41 left in the UK, the only way you'll see an Otterhound is by tuning into this year's Crufts. This scruffy looking pup won the best of breed back in 2018.
#6 Dandie Dinmont Terrier
