An American Foxhound from Georgetown won the top prize in the Hound Group at the National Dog Show presented by Purina this weekend.
Jewel is a two-year-old American Foxhound whose owner is Ellen Charles, of Georgetown, according to a press release. Jewel is one of the seven dogs competing for Best In Show in the competition.
Jewel’s handler is Lisa Miller of Mechanicsville, Md.
You can watch Jewel (who’s registered name is GCH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box) on NBC Thursday right after the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. There is a second airing Friday from 8 – 10 p.m. on NBC.
Update - 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 22: Jewel did not win the top prize at the National Dog Show this morning. That prize went to a Wire Fox Terrier named Sky. We wish Jewel the best in her future competitions, and we will welcome her home to Georgetown with open arms... and lots of dog treats.
