Default KC vulnerable native breeds list

The post about Irish water spaniels got me thinking about vulnerable breeds. The following is a list from the Kennel Club (UK) of those breeds native to the UK and Ireland with low or declining registrations. The Red & White Setter is definitely on my (ever growing) list of future dogs. It's interesting that the greyhound is on the list: obviously there are plenty of greyhounds but the vast majority are racing dogs and not KC registered.

Breed 1996 2005
Collie (Smooth) 76 72
Dandie Dinmont Terrier 153 149
Deerhound 300 264
English Toy Terrier (Black & Tan) 61 103
Fox Terrier (Smooth) 204 212
Glen of Imaal Terrier 89 45
Greyhounds 57 49
Irish Red & White Setter 205 120
Irish Terrier 201 270
Kerry Blue Terrier 218 277
Lakeland Terrier 314 330
Lancashire Heeler 167 166
Manchester Terrier 111 140
Norwich Terrier 164 131
Otterhound 33 50
Skye Terrier 91 30
Sealyham Terrier 111 58
Spaniel (Clumber) 142 192
Spaniel (Field) 134 86
Spaniel (Irish Water) 164 106
Spaniel (Sussex) 100 77
Welsh Corgi (Cardigan) 95 77
Welsh Terrier 304 326

Here's the best I can come up with - AKC registration statistics

I found data on the number of litters registered with the AKC, but not the number of individuals...

When looking at the litter registrations we need to keep in mind the average litter size for the breed.

In the litter registrations, labs are leading with 41,132 litters registered a year. Considering the average litter size is 8 for labs it's no wonder they're only second to pits when it come to dogs being put to death in shelters every year. 329,056 is a lot of labs looking for homes and that doesn't even include the unregistered litters.

By comparison Yorkies are second, with 33,000 litters with an average litter of 3 which only produces 99,000 AKC register-able yorkies as opposed to 329,56 register-able labs.

That's still a lot of dogs between just two breeds.

Man that is a good thought to think about. Never thought of looking at litter registrations. Lots of dogs loose some place and needing homes or put down because nobody wants them, then they keep breeding and breeding because being number one means sells. Same way German Shepherds were, look at the photo of the one American crippled Shepherd, they bred and bred till they are a mess.

I've also read that the British Bulldogs are in danger and that from I think it was 1999 that there has been a decrease of KC registrations in the UK by almost 100%. But there has been a increase in Manchester terriers which is good news, but they are still rare.
