Three new dog breeds recognized by American Kennel Club

The American Kennel Club announced that they now recognize three new breeds of dog. They are: the Xoloitzcuintli -- which can be used like a hot-water bottle. When hugged, the hairless dog radiates heat -- providing not only warmth but relief from arthritis. the Norwegian lundehund -- which boasts six toes on its paws. That came in handy for hunting puffin birds on remote cliffs -- the job they used to be bred for. the Entlebucher -- which requires a great deal of exercise -- and attention -- so it's not a good match for, say, a single person who works long hours. It's a good family dog, extremely loyal to the family and can be used as a watchdog. Source Photo Credit
