The Westminster Kennel Club will allow two new breeds to compete this year: the Coton De Tulear and the Wirehaired Vizsla.
Sometimes referred to as a ‘Bichon-type’ dog, the Coton De Tulear is known for its cottony coat. The long topcoat covers the forelegs. The breed belongs to the Non-Sporting Group.
The Wirehaired Vizsla is a member of the Sporting Group and is known for its energetic and active lifestyle. A breed requiring mental stimulation daily, it is an excellent hunting dog with origins in Hungary.
The Westminster Dog Show begins on Saturday, 14 February 2015.
