Shar Pei pup
When dog shows first began forming groups, there was only Sporting and Non-Sporting. As the number of breeds expanded, so did the number of Groups. Somehow, the Non-Sporting breeds eluded other classifications on this page, and is still the case today. So, this group is a collection of unrelated breeds who administrators feel do not fit into any of the other groups. Each breed in this varied group has its own individual aesthetic charm.
