Eight Mutts Who'll Put Their Best Paw Forward at WestminsterFor the first time ever, mixed breeds are set to compete in a new agility competition at the prestigious dog show


2014 marks a special milestone for mutts around the world: It's the first time the Westminster Kennel Club dog show has invited them to come play! The club is staging the The Masters Agility Championship on Feb. 8 in New York, where these dogs will be ready to roll – and jump, and run, and strut their stuff in an obstacle course before a panel of judges. This American Staffordshire terrier/border collie mix named Crime is ready to steal (hint, hint) championship gold on Saturday. Dubbed a natural by owner Debra Lazaro of Jackson, N.J., "His size, structure, power, and enthusiasm make him a wonderful agility partner."
