NEW! Underdogs Virtual Tour

While the main exhibition gallery highlights the top ten breeds, the AKC Library & Archives presents a moment to appreciate the less appreciated. We invite you to get to know some of the breeds with the lowest current number of AKC registrations through a selection of diverse materials from our collections. Research for this exhibition was conducted in the AKC Library & Archives. Curated by Brynn White, AKC Archivist.
