Will bloodhounds become fashionable among dog lovers?

Trumpet, a bloodhound, is the first of his breed to win at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

The hound was one of the six finalists who competed to win the prize for the best dog of the year in the contest, in its 146th edition.

“Trumpet” competed as a finalist with a French bulldog, a German shepherd, a Maltese, an English setter, a Samoyed and a Lakeland terrier.

The Westminster Kennel Club dog show is the most renowned dog show, so the winner is consecrated worldwide.

But the fact that “Trumpet” is the first of his breed to be the No. 1 dog in the world speaks to the fact that, while Bloodhounds have quite a few years on the registry, they aren’t as popular as other breeds.

The bloodhounds, originally from Belgium, are more located in the popular imagination as the “detective” dog of the movies, because of their great sense of smell, or as the wrinkled dog, but not as the most beautiful or fashionable, so it is not easy to know if they will be at the top or not, as has happened with other races.

Poodles, chihuahuas and pugs, the most popular in Mexico

In Mexico, poodles had a great boom in the 1990s, which continues to this day. The schnauzer followed the so-called “poodle” in popularity and thousands of Mexican homes had one.

Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers were all the rage in the 2000s, in no small part thanks to a commercial for toilet paper.

Chihuahuas had a worldwide heyday, thanks to socialites like Paris Hilton, who always appeared in photos with a small puppy, named “Tinkerbell”, who died in 2015.

Fashion and animal abuse

From there, pugs took the lead in popularity. And although there are thousands of homes with one of these dogs, there are also those who warn about the problems of this breed, like bulldogs, because of their bone structure.


The popularity of a breed, however, has not distanced animal abuse from the country, since Mexico has the painful first place in pet abandonment.

Nearly 500,000 dogs and cats are abandoned each year in Mexico. The Mexican Association of Veterinary Doctors Specialists in Small Species (AMMVEPE) estimates that there are around 28 million dogs in our country, of which 70% are on the street.
