Plenty of unusual breeds showed up at a Colorado dog show this weekend, but one really got a lot of attention. Only an estimated 12,000 dog owners worldwide can say their pet pooch has six toes.

They're called Norweigian Lundehunds. The six-toed canines only have the extra digits on their front feet.

It helps them balance on steep slopes.

The weekend show had a few other surprises, including a saint bernard-powered wagon for tired youngsters.
