Westminster Kennel Club Includes Six New Breeds in Their Show

The Cane Corso

The Westminster Kennel Club has introduced six new dog breeds into its show this year: Bluetick Coonhound, Icelandic Sheepdog, Cane Corso, Boykin Spaniel, Redbone Coonhound, and Leonberger.

The Westminster Dog Show is America’s first AKC champions-only dog show held in Madison Square Garden, where it has been held every year, since the first one opened in 1880. This year marks the 125th annual show and is being held today and tomorrow.

Last year, the winner of Best in Show was a Scottish Terrier named Ch Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot. Will one of the new breeds win this coveted distinction this year?
