List of Breeds H-R

AKC Recognized Breeds

Alphabetical Listing for H-R

The best way to ensure a long and happy relationship with a purebred dog is to purchase the dog from a responsible breeder. While the AKC does not endorse or recommend breeders, we do provide a Breeder Referral Search and an Online Breeder Classified service. You should receive AKC registration papers from the breeder when you purchase your dog.
