10 Most Unusual Looking Dog Breeds

I will be right out honest and say that it is not typical of me to find any dogs cute. They are nearly all adorable as puppies, but apart from the daschund and the newfoundlander, full grown dogs will always have things about them that make them just a bit odd for me.

That being said, there are some breeds of dog that take the cake when it comes to odd and unusual looking features. Whether it be how they are typically groomed, the texture of their fur or the lack of fur all together, unusual dogs come in all shapes and sizes.

Click through to see the 10 most unusual looking dog breeds:

    Personally, I think all terriers are weird looking - alien even. They don't shed very often making this breed a favorite among those with allergies.

  • Poodle 8 of 10
    I think if this breed of dog was left to their own grooming, they wouldn't look so weird. They tend to be groomed to have these puffs of hair around their legs and chest.

    If wrinkles are your think then I can see you loving this dog. For me, the deep set wrinkles that make this breed notable, it's definitely more unusual than cute.
