Still aching to learn about this dog and his funny nose? He’s next on the list below of these interesting breeds!
The Catalburun, or Turkish Pointer, is a mystery to anyone who has not spent time in Turkey. His most distinctive feature is that cute but odd split nose. The story goes that this unique nose is the result of inbreeding. However, it was originally believed that this unusual nose gave it extra sensitivity to smells, a primary reason it was chosen as a hunting dog.
His breed is Bracco Italiano but he might more appropriately have been called a beagleblood or a houndogle. For he looks like a cross between a beagle and a bloodhound. This cute, smart, active dog is impossible not to adore.
As you might expect from its name, the Caucasian Ovcharka comes from the Caucasus Mountains of Russia. He’ll protect you from bears if you ever need that to happen. Otherwise, he is a cute, cuddly, big, old companion.
