VetStreet.com: 8 Newest Breeds at the Westminster Dog Show

8 of 9

2012 Debut: Xoloitzcuintli

Despite its recent inclusion in the show, the Xoloitzcuintli (pronounced show-low-eats-queen-tlee if you're ambitious, or you can just go with Xolo) is one of the world’s older breeds and is said to be the first canine of the Americas. Central American and Mexican traditions state that the breed wards off evil spirits and intruders, but even without those attributes, this member of the Non-Sporting Group is an excellent companion dog and comes in three sizes.
