The All Breeds Championship Dog Shows organised by the Madras Canine Club came to a close on Sunday at the Kumara Rani Meena Muthiah College of Arts and Science sports ground.

Kali, a seven-month-old Caravan Hound (Mudhol Hound), bagged several prizes, apart from being judged the best in show for the 128th All Breeds Championship Dog Show.

All eyes were on the Mudhol Hound from Chennai as it bagged several other prizes, including the best puppy and best Indian breed in the show, as well.

At the 127th show, a one-and-a-half-year-old Shih Tzu, Brian, was adjudged the best. A British English Springer spaniel William was adjudged the best in the final show.

Meena Muthiah, Kumara Rani of Chettinad, was the chief guest at the grand finale for the best in show and N. Ram, chairman of THG Publishing Private Limited, was the guest of honour.

International panel

The shows were judged by a panel of six international judges. “It was very heartening to see the levels of enthusiasm and passion among dog lovers here and the competition had been interesting,” said Rafael Malo Alcrudo, one of the judges from Spain.

Several families as well as students visited the dog shows on Sunday and many younger children were keen on learning more about the participating dogs.
