Trumpet, a bloodhound, wins Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show

Trumpet is owned by Chris and Bryan Flessner, Heather Buehner and Tina Kocar, according the WKC.

Bloodhounds are “one of the oldest dog breeds that hunt by scent,” according to WKC classifications. A discovery by a trained sleuth can be used in court, the club said.

Winston, a French bulldog, won Reserve Best in Show. One of Winston’s owners is NFL defensive lineman Morgan Fox.
The show began Saturday at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, marking its second year at the venue instead of its usual home in New York’s Madison Square Garden. The competition was initially moved due to Covid-19 issues.
Nearly 3,500 dogs – representing more than 200 breeds and varieties – took part in the contest, according to a statement from organizers.

Here’s how they picked their winner

The show’s selected finalists represent the best of seven different groups of dog breeds: gun dog, toy, non-sporting, herding, sporting, working and terrier.
