Azawakh breed to compete for the first time

A new breed is looking to be top dog at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

For the first time, the Azawakh will be competing at the annual New York City event running Feb. 8-11. It will be one of more than 200 breeds and varieties represented in the competition for which there is no cash prize. 

“It’s all about honor, and prestige, and a trophy and being part of history,” says Gail Miller Bisher, Westminster Kennel Club Show national spokesperson.

The sighthound originating from West Africa is now recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) and therefore eligible for Westminster. In order for a breed to become recognized by the AKC, “there must be a minimum number of dogs geographically distributed throughout the U.S., as well as an established breed club of responsible owners and breeders,” according to Samantha Seymour, AKC public relations manager.
