If You’re Not Rooting For the Portugeuse Podengo Pequeno in This Year’s Westminster Show You’re a Heartless Bastard

Source – The Westminster Kennel Club dog show has long been the province of purebreds. But the nation’s premier canine event is opening a doggie door this year to mixed-breed competitors: They’ll be included in its new agility trial.

Next month’s show at Madison Square Garden will also feature three new breeds. They’re the chinook, the Portuguese podengo pequeño and the rat terrier.

A press conference Wednesday featured some of the newcomers, plus dogs weaving around poles and jumping through a tire on an agility course.

Organizers say this year marks the first time dogs of mixed breeds have appeared anywhere at Westminster since the 138-year-old event’s early days.

They won’t vie for the prestigious Best in Show award. That’s still purebreds only. It’ll be awarded on Feb. 11.



First year they let this super breed in the Westminster Dog Show and I guarantee he comes in blazing hot. Destroying dogs in the agility competition. Beating the shit out of dogs in the cooking event, which I’m 99% sure isn’t an actual event but my knowledge of the actual show is horrendous. I judge a dog by it’s look, and this dog just looks like a winner. All I know is come February I’ll have my custom made Portuguese podengo pequeño shirt on rooting my ass off.

P.S. The rat terrier is the worst named dog breed in the history of the world.
