The ASPCA has discovered that as many as 47 percent of households in the United States own a dog. You can tell will how many commercials are geared towards pet owners whether it’s talking about food, toys, or even outfits for your pet. Those that own these furry little guys, (or big guys..Bull Mastiffs, St. Bernards, etc) truly love and care for these animals to the point where they are family members to them. There is a group of dog breeds that are most popular, especially with families. Those are the Golden Retrievers, Labradors, and even the common Beagle is still pretty popular for people to adopt. Sadly though pets come in and out of style depending on many factors such as celebrity ownership, pets in movies or tv, and what dogs do well at the dog shows each year. There are some breeds that people just aren’t so hot to buy anymore. Here are the 13 breeds that no one is buying.
13. Curly Coat Retriever:
This breed has some health issues that a regular Retriever doesn’t seem to suffer from. They virtually look the same, but the fur is almost poodle-like with its curliness. They can get canine hip dysplasia (CHD) very easily, so you have to be careful walking them and with stairs. Plus, they tend to shed a lot, need a ton of space to move around in, and are pretty hyper. They aren’t good in small apartments, and don’t like to be home alone all day. So you really have to analyze your lifestyle before you purchase this breed of dog.
