In 2003, a Kennel Club (UK) initiative identified 28 of our native breeds of dog as being "vulnerable". The criteria for being listed as vulnerable is breed registrations with an overall trend of less than 300 per year (in the UK) over a period of ten years. The original list compiled by the Kennel Club took into account breed registrations from 1993 to 2003. Over time, it is inevitable that the breeds featured on the vulnerable breeds list will change i.e. there will be breeds with currently increasing numbers that will soon fall outside the inclusion criteria and others that will be added to the list because of a continued decline in annual registrations.

VULNERABLE BREEDS

The Discover Dogs section of the Kennel Club's website links to the breed standards of all the Kennel Club recognised breeds. Each breed standard details general appearance, breed characteristics and temperament, as well as coat type and colours, and size of an adult dog. At the bottom of each breed standard page, you can find contact details for the secretary of each club.

The Vulnerable Native Breeds page lists all the vulnerable native breeds and also features articles written by people associated with some of these breeds.

The British Heritage Dog Breeds website was established "to form an interactive hub; a central meeting point for like-minded enthusiasts who care about the future of our British Heritage Dog Breeds".

GLEN OF IMAAL TERRIER

Of all the vulnerable breeds, the Glen of Imaal Terrier has the rather dubious honour of having the fewest breed registrations. Back in 1973, there were no Glen registrations in the UK; in 1983, there were 40; in 1993, there were 47; and in 2003, there were just 26 Glen registrations. In 2007, we had 36 registrations.
