Otterhound tops 'at risk' dog breeds list

Mar 01, 2018 - The Daily Telegraph (London)

The otterhound is the country's most at-risk dog, as rare native breeds are being "forgotten", the Kennel Club said as it launched its Save the Forgotten Dog Breeds campaign.

The organisation warned native pedigrees such as the otterhound and the Glen of Imaal terrier had for so long been overlooked that even at Crufts, dog lovers failed to recognise some endangered breeds on show.

Just 24 otterhound puppies were registered in 2017, a drop of 40 per cent from 2016.
