Manitoba purebred dog lovers came out in force to support the second annual Meet the Breeds Event at the Red River Exhibition, June 13 to June 22, 2014.
Knowledgeable breeders and purebred dog owners, representing 45 breeds, were on hand to showcase their four-legged friends ―from Chihuahuas to Irish Wolfhounds, Samoyeds to Chinese Cresteds, Am Staffs and Wheatens and more.
The public were greeted by dogs of all sizes and coat types with friendly owners who were more than willing to share their knowledge on responsible dog ownership and the benefits of owning a purebred dog.
The dogs were a big hit with children of all ages, including a few pirates and several servicemen, and sat patiently while having their pictures taken.
Overall, it was a superb event. Thanks to all the volunteers who gave their time to teach the next generation about the value of the purebred dog.
