The Four Shires Bloodhounds to feature at Crufts

  • The Four Shires Bloodhounds will be at Crufts — the world’s largest dog show — tomorrow (Thursday 7 March 2013).

    Thursday is the hound and terrier day at the show, which is held at the NEC in Birmingham, and the pack will be at dog feed company Gilbertson & Page’s stand in hall three. They will also be in the dog activities ring at 11am and 1.30pm.

    “Crufts will be a vital opportunity to raise the profile of bloodhounds,” said Maggie Pearlstine, master of the Four Shires.

    “Never has the breed been in more difficulty and people will realise what gorgeous hunting hounds these are — they are real athletes.”

    The Four Shires kennel huntsman Heidi Critchlow — who has been at the forefront of a breeding programme for bloodhounds — will be at the show to answer the public’s questions about the breed.

    Crufts takes place from 7-10 March.
