AKC Welcomes New American Breed in Time for Independence Day & Celebrates Breeds from the U.S.

As we approach Independence Day, we reflect back on the 18 breeds that call America home and we’re proud to celebrate each and every one of them, including the Rat Terrier, which gained full AKC recognition in June.  We’re very excited to have the Rat Terrier join the AKC family.

In celebration of the Fourth of July, take a look at dog breeds that hail from the United States!
