This AKC-authorized fifth edition of Meet the Breeds is a complete, current, and fully illustrated resource on all AKC breeds!

With nearly 200 registered breeds—either in one of the seven Variety Groups or as part of the Miscellaneous Class—the American Kennel Club is the world's largest purebred-dog registry and the governing body for the canine sport in the United States.

For someone looking to add a purebred canine companion to their life—or for the all-around purebred-dog enthusiast—Meet the Breeds presents the most current AKC information. Meet two new Miscellaneous breeds, the Barbet and the Kooikerhondje, and learn about the transition from the Miscellaneous Class to full recognition for six other breeds. Fanciers are sure to learn something interesting about their favorite breeds while meeting plenty of new and intriguing furry faces!

The spectacular "AKC Meet the Breeds" event was launched by the American Kennel Club in New York City in 2009. Its resounding success led to the event becoming an annual attraction as well as to the publication of this official guide. Winner of the 2017 Dog Writers Association of America Best Club Special Publication, The American Kennel Club's Meet the Breeds presents 198 dog breeds, all either currently recognized by the AKC or part of the AKC's Miscellaneous Class.
