Rescue Dog Show: HOORAY! All Mutts Allowed and Welcomed…$5 – $25K in Prizes Awarded to Shelters
Dog shows are usually reserved for pure breed dog in perfect health. The dogs are judged by what is considered the ideal parameters for their breed. This includes the shape of their ears, the texture, length and color of their coat, the shape and color of their eyes, how they walk and stand, and many other physical attributes.
But there’s a new show in town. One that is less stuffy, non-traditional and a LOT more fun.
To qualify for American Rescue Dog Show, the dogs must be rescues. No stuck-up Poodles, yappy Yorkies, or killer Chihuahuas need apply. Special needs dogs are also eligible.
The prizes in this show go for off the wall traits such as:
Best couch potato
Best in snoring
Best in underbite
Best senior dog
Best in special needs
And of course, best wiggle butt. Who doesn’t want to see the winner of this category?
The American Rescue Dog Show is televised on the Hallmark Channel and Michael Levitt is the producer.
The dogs must be spayed or neutered in order to participate.
Winners receive awards from $5,000 to $25,000 for their shelters.
Along with being a lot of fun to watch, the goal is to help more rescue dogs find forever homes. By raising awareness of the unique qualities of these dogs it is hoped more people will see what wonderful additions they can make to a family.
A good pet doesn’t need “ideal” physical perfection. Instead they need a loving heart, a lot of personality, and a family to love and care for them.
