There will be a second Dog Breeds Quiz and a Cats Breeds Quiz at our Charity Open Day on 23rd June.
THANKS to the Queen, the Pembroke Welsh corgi is among the world's most famous breeds of dog. Uniformed footmen escorting the short-legged farming dogs up and down the steps of aircraft are a familiar sight on royal overseas tours.But Pembroke corgis have a less well-known cousin. OTTERHOUND This is Britain's rarest breed, with only 16 puppies born in the first half of this year. These huge, shaggy dogs, bred to hunt otters 1,000 years ago, have seen a steep decline in their numbers since the pursuit was banned here in 1978.
Fans of the breed point to their intelligence and affectionate nature but these are big, messy, energetic creatures, which can be challenging to train and need plenty of space.SKYE TERRIER These long-haired little dogs from the Inner Hebrides have a romantic history. This year that figure is likely to be even smaller.This worrying situation for dog enthusiasts is one the Club has addressed over the past decade.
The Club's Vulnerable Native Breeds initiative aims to identify those at risk and draw public attention to their virtues. It includes a list of more than 20 breeds which register fewer than 300 puppies a year.Today Chihuahuas are among Britain's favourite dogs, beating dachshunds, whippets, Yorkshire terriers and beagles in Kennel Club polls. This huge popularity is largely attributable to a celebrity penchant for "handbag dogs" as beloved by the likes of hotel heiress Paris Hilton and singer Cheryl Cole.


This summer, however, only four Skye terrier puppies were registered with the Kennel Club.DANDIE DINMONT TERRIER Like the Skye, the Dandie Dinmont is a Scottish breed and an old one too. Much of this is about the profile of the dog, whether or not people are aware that the breeds exist. Some of the problems we have with the vulnerable breeds are that people have simply forgotten that they are there."Some dogs under the spotlight, such as the Glen Of Imaal terrier, are so rare that the nearest most people come to seeing them is on television at Crufts. These chocolate-coloured, silky-coated, stocky animals were bred as gun dogs at the end of the 18th century but are better known today from their appearance in adverts for clothes shop chain Hackett. Most of us have never even heard of a Lancashire heeler and wouldn't recognise the curly-coated Irish water spaniel.Other endangered breeds are better known, such as the Old English sheepdog and the Irish wolfhound.
In almost every case the endangered breeds identified by The Kennel Club were once working dogs. At the end of the Second World War there were only seven of these dogs left in Britain.KERRY BLUE TERRIER In Ireland in the Twenties one in four puppies registered with the Irish Kennel Club was a Kerry Blue terrier. Modern farming methods, as well as new regulations governing traditional country sports, have reduced the need for working dogs.That doesn't stop many of these characterful and handsome animals making excellent family pets. In November several of the Vulnerable Native Breeds will be at Discover Dogs, an event organised by The Kennel Club to introduce the public to more than 200 of them.SEALYHAM TERRIER Like corgis, Sealyham terriers originated in Wales. While the Miniature Schnauzer is one of the most popular breeds in the world, Kerry Blues face an uphill struggle with annual puppy registrations hovering round the 200 mark.MANCHESTER TERRIER Elizabeth I's doctor John Caius described these black and tan smooth-coated terriers more than 400 years ago.


Crossing corgis and wirehaired fox terriers with the English White Terrier, a breed which is now extinct, he created a dog with powerful 7 8 9 10 17 18 19 20 jaws and a wiry white coat. These were the dogs used by Jack Black, best-known of Queen Victoria's Royal Ratcatchers.Manchester terriers are quick on their feet, with longer legs than the majority of terriers. In their heyday Sealyhams became a favourite breed with such Hollywood actors as Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis and Elizabeth Taylor. Later, some breeders crossed the dogs with Chihuahuas to produce a smaller form of the terrier.
A win at Crufts in 2009 boosted interest in the breed but Sealyhams still register fewer than 100 puppies a year.CLUMBER SPANIEL These large white spaniels, with distinctive lemon and orange markings, were also once royal favourites. Elegant dogs first bred as gun dogs, these setters are affectionate and good with children.The Kennel Club describes them as being among the most glamorous of all dogs with long, silky white coats generously flecked with colour and feathery tails.
