First Bloodhound To Ever Win the Westminster Dog Show
On Wednesday, June 22, an adorable bloodhound named Trumpet became the first-ever bloodhound to win the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Trumpet emerged triumphant after competing for best in show at the Westminster Dog Show.
The Westminster Dog Show is an all-breed competition hosted by the American Kennel Club. The dogs are judged on their agility, obedience, and conformation. The 2022 show marked the 146th year of the event, and the first year to crown a bloodhound “Best in Show.”
The five-year-old bloodhound made a splash this year, beating a French bulldog, German Shepherd, Maltese, English Setter, Samoyed, and a Lakeland terrier. The most common breed to win at this show is the Wire Fox Terrier, followed by the Scottish terrier.
