Meet the newest breeds coming to the Westminster Dog Show next month

There will be two dog breeds making their first appearance at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show next month, among the more than 200 breeds and varieties that will be competing at the nation's top dog show. They are the grand basset griffon Vendeen (grahnd bah-SAY grih-FAHN vahn-DAY-ahn), a hound developed in France to hunt rabbits and hare, and the Nederlandse kooikerhondje (NAY-dehr-lahn-seh KOY-kehr-hahnd-jeh), which was initially trained to help Dutch duck hunters by luring birds into net-covered canals.
