Dog lovers around Charlottesville and Albemarle County got the chance to show off their pooches at a special event this weekend, one final time.

The 63rd dog show for the Charlottesville-Albemarle Kennel Club took place this weekend.

More than 600 dogs graced the stages at the Foxield race track in Albemarle County to strut their stuff and compete for a few awards.

There were seven different categories of dogs, which were all competing for best in show.

A husky named Rumor Has It won that title.

Handlers say this show gives them a chance to showcase their favorite breed and learn about other.

“If we value that uniqueness of a breed, you'll find talking to people around here today, that what they are really doing is protecting that,” says Linda King, president of the kennel club. “We aren't trying to create large numbers we are trying to protect the uniqueness of a breed.”

Because of financial reasons, this will be the final dog show at the Foxfield race track.

There were more than 120 breeds at this year's competition.
