A celebration of joy spread the word about Hungarian dog breeds during the six-day series of competitions organized under the auspices of the American Kennel Club in Orlando, FL between December 12th and 17th. The four-legged diplomats represented the Hungarian national heritage with dignity and pride.
155 was the joyous number of entries of Hungarian dog breeds in one of the world’s largest and most competitive dog shows. The audience could support seven of the nine Hungarian dog breeds. 20 Kuvaszok, 2 Komondors, 35 Mudis, 6 Pulis, 29 Pumis, 45 Hungarian Vizslas and 18 wire-haired Vizslas represented the Hungarian dog breeds. The support of Hungarian fans was important amongst the prestigious camp of the significantly more popular and well-known dog breeds.
It is not only in the United States that dedicated breeders of Hungarian breeds have a difficult time, but the number of ancient Hungarian dog breeds has dwindled in the mother country as well. This is why it is crucial to achieve outstanding results at prestigious, international dog shows like the one in Orlando.
Hungarian dog breeds are among the most special dog breeds in the world with their outstanding intelligence, strength, rich spirituality and work ethic. Large, international events offer a great opportunity to shed light and distinguished attention on them. Their growing popularity on the American continent can greatly contribute to the increase in their numbers and recognition throughout the world.
