The bottom 10 are the plott coonhound, Dandie Dinmont terrier, Sealyham terrier, German pinscher, Canaan, komondor, American foxhound, harrier, otterhound
and, in last place, the English foxhound.
In the early days the bulldog and the smaller otterhound
blood was part of the development to the breed we know today.
