All Eyes photo gallery: 3 new breeds competing for Best in Show at Westminster Kennel Club dog show

13

February


About 2,800 dogs from 190 breeds are competing in the 141st Westminster Kennel Club dog show this year, and by late Tuesday night, a new pooch will be crowned "Best in Show."

This year, three new breeds will be first-timers at Westminster. One is the Pumi, a Hungarian herding dog that's related to the mop-like puli. 

Another new entry will be the American hairless terrier, which, as its name implies, is not a furry sort - in fact, the dogs need sunscreen or a coat when they go outside, according to the American Kennel Club.

Rounding out the trio of newbies is the Sloughi, which is pronounced SLOO-ghee, which is also known as the Arabian greyhound. It was bred to hunt, and it likes to run.

You can watch the competition Monday and Tuesday night on Fox Sports' FS1 channel. Click here to find FS1 on your TV
