Default AKC recognizes three new breeds

Three new breeds are now recognized by the AKC: the American English Coonhound, the Finnish Lapphund, and the Ceskey Terrier.

"American English Coonhound
This breed is distinguishable by its medium length, protective coat and can be found in a variety of colors; red and white ticked, blue and white ticked, tri-colored with ticking, red and white, and white and black. This breed is known for its speed and endurance, as well as strength, grace and attitude like that of a well-conditioned athlete. The American English Coonhound is pleasant, alert, confident, and sociable with both humans and dogs, and has an almost kind look about him. They also make adequate watch dogs as they possess extremely loud hound mouths characterized by melodious, drawn out bawls and short, explosive chops.
Finnish Lapphund
Also known as Lappies, this newly AKC recognized breed of dog are loving and devoted animals who do particularly well with families with children. Being particularly social dogs, they prefer to be an integral part of the family and do not make good outdoor-only pets. Lappies are recognizable by their fluffy coat and almost teddy bear like face. As with many herding and working dogs, they tend to excel in obedience, agility, and other dog sports. Their lovable nature also makes them great therapy dogs. You can find Finnish Lapphunds in almost any color: white, black, red, brown, sable and wolf-sable are common, however the most common color combination is black and tan: a predominantly black dog with tan legs and face.
Cesky Terrier
This breed is recognizable primarily by its short legs, bushy beard, mustache, and eyebrows, and a long, silky coat. When the dog reaches between 2 and 3 years old, the adult coat color will be set and is shades of gray to a dark charcoal to platinum gray. Sometimes black appears on the head, ears, feet and tail. This breed is very trainable, intelligent, and easy to handle, as well as being playful, loyal, and good with children. The Cesky Terrier can grow to between 13-23 pounds and will typically live between 12 and 15 years."

The Finnish Lapphund is pretty. The Cesky Terrier looks a lot like a Schnauzer to me.

Is it me? The Terrier's head looks a little large for my liking.
