Lepshi, a Bracco Italiano puppy, won his breed’s debut at the famous Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Tim McGraw, a renowned singer, and actor, co-owned this dog. Lepshi received a lot of love from the audience while vying with other handsome hounds of his breed.
Handler Ryan Wolfe appreciated Lepshi after the 6-year-old defeated other dogs in the show. He said,” Lepshi has amazing trotting skills, calming nature, and warm personality, which made him a wonderful representative for the breed.”
Tim McGraw and his wife have multiple Bracco Italiano dogs at home. They love spending time with their dogs and often post videos of their dogs on social media also.
One such video they posted in 2020, in which their daughter was singing, and one of their Bracco dogs accompanied her. McGraw captioned this post,” “Stromboli is super happy that Maggie is home from college!!!!!”
Ryan Wolfe, Lepshi’s handler, described how proud he is to be first to contest with the Bracco Italiano breed at the most popular dog show. However, Lepshi was out of the semifinals but dazzled the judges with her mastery and completed the initial cuts in his group.
This win of Bracco Italiano breed in the Westminster Kennel Club dog show has increased its popularity, and many people may desire to adopt them. But the owners should remember that such breeds need specific care, which is not everyone’s cup of tea.
For instance, Tillie-rye Hogwallop, a Bracchi dog who got the breed’s best female competitor award in the American Kennel Club show, requires a lot of outdoor activities and regular exercise. In addition, not everyone can adopt and raise these dogs; owners should comprehend certain things about them before adopting them.
