This is the fourth year of crowing America's Great American Mutt! Previously, Tails In Need has hosted shows like the one held in 2002. This was a wonderful show held in New York's Central Park, called The Great American Mutt Show! Dogs of multiple or questionable lineage were welcome with. Categories of competition including "What Else Am I?", "Best Trick" and "Highest Jumper". The finalists competed for "Best in Show." The "Best in Show" winner was an 11 year old German Shepherd/Whippet or Greyhound/ Terrier mix, named Brandon.
The celebration of the mutt is being underwritten by Tails in Need, a not-for-profit foundation that promotes public awareness with regards to the value of adopting mixed breed, unwanted and abandoned animals. Tails in Need operates through donations, using events such as the Great American Mutt Show to encourage adoption of animals as well as spay and neuter programs.
