The American Kennel Club has announced the addition of two new dog breeds.
The Russian Toy, a cheerful little dog of the Russian aristocracy, and the Mudi, originally from Hungary and used on farms, have now joined the list of recognized breeds.
“We are delighted that two unique breeds are joining the registry,” AKC executive secretary Gina DiNardo said in a statement on Tuesday.
The Russian toy will become a member of the Toy group, which includes 775 dog breeds. The Mudi, a rare breed with only 450 in the United States, will become a member of the breeding group, which includes breeds like the German Shepherd or the Collie.

“This is not the (Mudi) breed for a first-time dog owner. Although some may call the breed stubborn, I see it as bored if constantly drilled,” said Susanne Bergesen, secretary. correspondent for the Mudi Club of America, in a statement. “They are thinkers, they love to learn, learn quickly, and don’t need a lot of repetition to acquire most skills.”
The American Kennel Club, the world’s largest purebred dog registry, recognizes new dog breeds every year, with dogs required to belong to an established breed club. Last year, Dogo Argentino and Barbet joined the registry. All registered breeds can compete in events and clubs organized by the American Kennel Club.
