Canaan by SaNNaS Canaan by SaNNaS
It's not every day you get to meet a Pariah dog at a dogshow. I was lucky to do so. I saw it across the parkinglot, grabbed my camera (hehe, ok I admit it was already in my hand) and ran for it.
It rained quite a bit, but who cares about the rain when such an interesting breed is close by?

This is a Canaan dog, more info here ---> [link]

Wow, what a treat! The Canaan dog is so rare in the Western parts of the world. I have yet to see one in the U.S.

I have this breed! :D We've had them for 15 years and we love them =] They're a really amazing breed, but they're not for everyone [they have a mind of their own haha]. It's funny, when we bring our dogs to a show sometimes we get comments like "It's a Canaan specialty!" because it really isn't common to see them, let alone more than one haha xD

This is a great shot and that is a gorgeous Canaan! :heart:

Thank you so much!

Haha, yes I've understood that they are very special :D I too have a very special boy so I think one day I would probably dare to venture into the Canaan breed. But I must admit I'd like an Azawakh more than anything ^^

i've never heard of that breed, but i looked it up and he's gorgeous! :D i'm kinda biased towards herding breeds [haha] but of all the hound breeds i tend to like pharaoh hounds cuz i like pricked ears :)

SaNNaS Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh yes, pharaoh hounds are amazing! I personally like hanging ears, but I think that's because my first dog had that type of ears and I had him for ten years so I sort of got used to that ^^
