Westminster Dog Show Finds Their 'Best In Show,' As Shelter Dogs Are Euthanized

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is considered the second longest continuously held sporting event in the country, and last night they narrowed down the field of 2,500 competitors and found their “Best in Show.”

“GCH Foxcliffe Hickory Wind” aka “ Hickory,” a 5-year-old Scottish deerhound, was named the winner. This is in spite of new dog breeds participating this year, including the Bluetick Coonhound, Redbone Coonhound, Cane Corso, Leonberger, and the Icelandic sheepdog.

But of course, glorifying pure bred dogs and promoting the message that these are the “Best” of the dog world, means that an estimated 4 million shelter dogs are euthanized in favor of buying from a breeder. At last year’s show, when the winning dog was announced, protesters held up signs that read, “Mutts Rule” and “Breeders Kill Shelter Dogs’ Chances.” And for this year’s show, celebs like Jane Lynch spoke out openly against the dog show.

We agree with Lynch in that dog shows work against shelter dogs, but what do you think?
