Asheville Kennel Club's Miscellaneous Class Celebration

Asheville Kennel Club(AKC) celebrated the Miscellaneous Class breeds at its recent dog shows by hosting "Bravo to the Breeds of the Miscellaneous Class." The fun, educational event spotlighted some of the rarer breeds working their way to full AKC recognition.

"We went from an average yearly entry of eight dogs, up to 22 dogs, with 6 breeds represented," said Show Chairman Jim Owens. "Best in Miscellaneous was held in the group ring at the start of that day's groups and as the breeds were examined, information on the breed was read over the PA system."

Kim Johnson attended and said it was a great show that showcased the breeds in MISC Class, to include having the MISC BIS in the big rings before groups, all breeds had a nice prize for Best of Breed and the winner got a very lovely rosette and handmade basket! Great venue, great club look forward to next year.

This featured the MISC breeds at the Asheville Kennel Club and it has some great pictures of Dynasty's Triple Crown, "Remi" at the show
