Only three hounds have ever won Best in SHow at Westminster, and they've all been Afghans or whippets-- ornamental-looking hounds, not hounds that look like they've ever been on a hunt. The last hound to win Best in Show was 24 years ago.

What do you think that is?

That's a great question, really. I admit, I am not an expert, by any means, but I have watched these things for years and know a bit about dogs. When looking at the stats for the past shows, I am always a little shocked at what kind of dog HASN'T won before. I guess it just depends on the year, the competition and all of that. It seems a shame some years, b/c I think some should have won when maybe they didn't. I guess that's true for any competition, isn't it? I usually have my favorites in each group and always have my standard favorite breeds, but I try not to let that influence what I think a deserving dog might be that year. It's hard, though, ya know? There have certainly been years when I thought a hound should have won it, just as with other groups, but I'm not in the ring judging...unfortunately! lol! Sometimes, it just seems the bigger dogs (as not all hounds are, I know) seem to get less attention than some of the smaller one's....IDK...just my opinion. Great comment!

The information below is incorrect.



Only three hounds have ever won Best in SHow at Westminster, and they've all been Afghans or whippets-- ornamental-looking hounds, not hounds that look like they've ever been on a hunt. The last hound to win Best in Show was 24 years ago.




The Scottish Deer Hound from the Hound group went Best In Show Last year.
