By Jill Dando News

What a fabulous dog and let’s sound the horn for his name.

Trumpet the bloodhound, was named Best in Show at the 146th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. 

The beautiful dog became the first bloodhound to ever win the prestigious competition beamed live across America.


Nearly 3,500 dogs, representing more than 200 breeds and varieties, competed in the show.

Trumpet was victorious over six other finalists: Hollywood the Maltese; Winston the French bulldog; River the German shepherd; Belle the English setter; Striker the samoyed; and MM the lakeland terrier. 

The show is the second-oldest continuous sporting event in America.
