Origins of Dog Breeds

I have Germany on the brain since our Pets Jubilee team leader is going there next month. I became curious about dog breeds originating from that country, but after looking, I found other interesting breeds from other countries as well.  I picked out a few that I was not familiar with to SHOW their picture and TELL their country of origin. Do you recognize any? Do you know where your dog originated from? 

Africanis from Africa

Canaan Dog from Israel

Formosan Mountain Dog from Thailand

Saluki from Egypt 

Jindo from Korea

Mudi from Hungary

 This site lists dozens and dozens of breeds, most with photos. It's pretty interesting!

This was a great post. There are so many cool breeds that we have never seen.
To answer your question - I have 2 Mi-Ki's. They originate from Japan.
