Native breed - a first for the New Zealand Kennel Club
The New Zealand Kennel Club (NZKC) and the New Zealand Sheepdog Trial Association are delighted to announce the recognition of New Zealand's first native breed on the official NZKC Registry.
There are currently 223 different breeds on the Registry but all have off-shore origins. For dogs of a recognised breed to be able to be registered with the NZKC they must have a pedigree of at least three generations. With the NZKC having been in existence for 128 years the recognition of the NZ Huntaway is a significant milestone for the club.
