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

Trumpet, a bloodhound from Saint Joseph, Illinois was crowned the Best in Show winner at the 146th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Wednesday night

The show is the second-oldest continuous sporting event in the US after Kentucky Derby. The show crowned its winner among contenders who won in earlier best-in-group competitions. 4 years old Trumpet is owned by Chris and Bryan Flessner, Heather Buehner, and Tina Kocar, according to the WKC.

Trumpet created history by becoming the first Bloodhound to ever win Best in Show in Westminster’s 146-year history. Trumpet is the son of Nathan, who won the Hound Group in 2014.

“I am so excited for Trumpet,” said handler Heather Buehner, who co-owns and bred the dog. She added, “He has a lot of attitude and he’s a little crazy.”

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

The show began Saturday at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, marking its second year at the location instead of its usual home at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
