VietNamNet Bridge – Saigonees have never witnessed so many rare and beautiful dogs at the same time in the Miss Dog Pageant held in the Dam Sen Cultural Park on Sunday morning.
The dog show was organized based on the standards of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI), attracting around 300 dogs. Typical dog species participated in the contest were bulldog (Britain), Rottweiler (Italy and Germany), Chihuahua (Mexico), Becgie, and Phu Quoc from Vietnam.
The organizers invited Thomas Lim, a member of the FCI from Singapore, as the major referee for this contest.
“This is the first time Vietnam has organized a dog show that is up to FCI criteria. The Vietnam Breed Dog Association plans to organize a national dog show on September 2, 2009,” said the association’s Vice Chairman, Nguyen Van Lang.
The association has around 200 members who are professional dog breeders, most of them in HCM City.
According to the FCI, more than 350 species of dogs are recognized in 80 countries around the world.
Here are some contestants of the pageant:
