AKC Canine Ambassador Introduces Families to AKC’s Irish Breeds

AKC Canine Ambassador Dixie Howell-Hirsch recently coordinated "The Irish Eight Clan," an exhibit of AKC's Irish breeds, at the 2016 Big Irish Fair & Musicfest in Long Beach, California. 

The Clan hosted an open “interaction arena,” where local families could pet and/or view the different breeds and learn more about each dog. The owners also shared information on “Is This The Right Breed For You?” with facts about living with their breed.
