American Foxhound Highly Regarded at Westminster

jewel.akc american foxhoundThe smart money had the American foxhound and the affenpinscher dueling for top dog at Westminster last week. Jewel, the foxhound, won best of breed in the hound category, but, as everyone knows by now, it was the affenpinscher that was judged Best in Show.

It’s often scary to see what AKC shows have done to some breeds, but I have to admit that Jewel, owned and handled by Lisa Miller, would look pretty nice in any pack of hounds I know.
