Trumpet, a bloodhound, has won the Westminster Dog Show Best.
Trumpet, a bloodhound, kissed his handler Heather Helmer after winning the "Best in Show" at the 146th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Wednesday at Lindhurst Estate in Territown, New York. The show is the second-oldest continuous sports event in the United States since the Kentucky Derby and has been crowned among its winning competitors who have won previous best-in-group competitions.
Trumpet is owned by Chris and Brian Flesner, Heather Buener and Tina Cocker, according to the WKC.
According to the WKC classification, bloodhounds are "one of the oldest breeds of dog that hunts by smell". A discovery of a trained bloodhound could be used in law courts, the club said.
