Why hello there! This affable Komondor was happy to greet us as we set out on our Meet the Breeds adventure.
The event is the perfect opportunity to get to know virtually all the breeds the AKC recognizes… like this trusty Bloodhound.
This Borzoi lives for affection and attention. The breed is somewhat active outside, but is typically quiet and catlike in the home.
These cuties are two peas in a pod!
Has this princess found her dog in shining armor? We think so!
Though Flynn, the Bichon Frise, ended up taking the coveted Best in Show, the competition certainly put up a good fight.
Look at the joy this affectionate pooch brings to the lives of those around him!
For those curious about certain breeds, the owners manning the booths are incredibly informative and knowledgeable.
An easy identifier of the Bedlington Terrier is its little pom pom ears! Here are five things you might not know about the traditionally coiffed breed.
The Bloodhound is a breed you’ve most certainly seen captured in cartoons throughout the years. Own one already? Here are ten things
you might relate to.
This adorable Boxer had a kissing booth set up and spent the majority of the day spreading some love. Boxers are currently the 10th most popular breed, and for good reason: though they definitely pack a punch (they are very strong dogs!), their fun-loving nature and sense of humor is really hard not to fall in love with immediately.
Meanwhile, over at the Chow Chow booth, these dogs were excelling at what they do best: being adorable.
This Airedale Terrier stole our hearts! Stationed in a British-themed bus, he spent the day making new friends.
Three Basset Hounds doing what they do best: snoozing!
Here’s a question: How many dogs do you see in this image?
The resemblance this owner has to his Old English Sheepdogs is undeniable!
Gotta love a big dog who thinks he’s a little one.
The Golden Retrievers we spotted at MTB were class acts (they’re currently the third most popular breed).
The bib says it all: Drool's Best Friend.
Posing for photos is just part of the job for the dogs hanging out at MTB.
This dog is going full speed with his "hater blockers" on.
Behold the Samoyed in his natural habitat: Hanging with his favorite people (everyone). Gentle and super friendly, what’s not to love about a breed whose number one identifier is a wide canine grin?
It’s hard to mistake a Saint Bernard — you can see it walking around from practically miles away.
Looks like this little Keeshond made a new friend! The lively breed gets along wonderfully with children.
In case there was any confusion, no, these are definitely not bears — they are black and white, or Landseer, Newfoundlands!
You’ve gotta be okay with a little bit of slobber to own a Newfoundland, that’s for sure.
Easygoing, loyal and large, Great Danes are wonderful companions… as long as you’re able to get in a walk two to three times a day.
One of the more unique looking breeds, Bull Terriers are energetic and sport a short and glossy coat.
This brindle Mastiff is fit for a princess! The breed is easygoing and responds well to training, which makes it a great sidekick.
On the smaller end of the spectrum, we have the Manchester Terrier.
This fair furred Ibizan Hound is out to steal hearts.
Enjoy this gang of Lagotto Romagnoli!
This Greater Swiss Mountain Dog may trump his new friend in size, but not in affection.
This Irish Red and White Setter brings joy to everyone who ruffles her ears.
What a winsome pair this Italian Greyhound and her owner make!
Lucky us! We met a sleepy Dalmatian pup held by his owner in a matching canine-adorned cardigan.
This friendly Beauceron is all about giving kisses.
Wonder dog to the rescue! What a darling Rottie.
We were smitten with this sweet Bergamasco. The breed is a relatively new inductee to the AKC, having gained recognition in 2015. Bergamascos are whip smart and super patient.
Ahhh, the highly regarded Shih Tzu. Who can resist those itty bitty braids and big eyes?
The Lagotto Romagnolo is also known as the “truffle hunter.” The Lagotto is the only purebred dog in the world recognized as a specialized truffle searcher.
