>> hello to john l. hurly. he is hosting the dog show on thanksgiving day .
>> it's been a dozen years now. this is one of the three new breeds this year. it's wild. he is the newest member of the hound group . this is a little hunter. he'll be one of the 16 hunter dogs we'll have on the show tomorrow.
>> how does a new breed make it into the show?
>> it has to have a following around the country and enough of the dogs as well. the akc is recognizing it has to have a historical significance as well too. this dog is back from the 18 hundreds, actually.
>> and a wonderful little hound. if you're chasing rabbits, this is the one you want.
>> you've got so many front runners. number one dogs. it's going to be hard to figure out who is going to win it.
>> this is an unusual year. we have more number one dogs of their breeds in this show this year than ever before. any anybody's game.
>> all right. thank you so much. you can catch the national dog show on nbc presented by purina tomorrow at noon right after the parade.
