New Westminster breeds for 2017 announced: 3 dogs, and one cat

It’s cuteness overload.

Meet the trio of adorable new breeds eligible to compete in the 141st Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show next month. The breeds were introduced at an event on Thursday at Madison Square Garden.

The dogs, which were granted AKC breed full recognition, will compete on Feb. 13 and Feb. 14.

And not to forget the feline friends, cats will be featured for the first time in a few years during “Meet and Compete” on Feb. 11, a partnership between AKC Meet the Breeds and the Masters Agility Championship.

“It makes it interesting,” said Gail Miller Bisher, a spokeswoman for the Westminster Kennel Club. “It’s a celebration of dogs — and now cat — but it needs to be a little bit of everything for everybody. That’s what we like about it.”
