You don't see these guys at the dog park every day.

6. Caucasian Ovcharka

Unless you live in, say, the Caucasus Mountains (where this "Russian bear-hunting dog" originates from) and need protection from bears and wolves, this dog probably won't fit your lifestyle. But they're cute to look at/fantasize about being a shirtless forest warrior with.

7. Czechoslovakian Vlcak

It's a wolf dog. A dog that looks like a wolf. It's a pretty new breed, probably created by fantasy literature fans who knew that the world would one day demand dogs that look like direwolves. They're also similar to direwolves in their behavior, as they're crazy loyal and only temperamental if not trained properly.
