Rescued Dog Reunion

This is the dog “Show” for every dog, not just the ones with papers!  Come show off your rescued dog in the show ring before the Dachshund Races.  Dress up and dress up your dog for our Costume Contest.

Just show up and enjoy the Reunion. No registration needed.

Your dog can win a trophy!  We’ll have lots of trophies, and we want your dog to take one home.  We’re sure your dog will be the winner in at least one of our categories.

  • Smallest Dog

  • Tallest Dog

  • Fat Dog of the Year

  • Youngest Dog

  • Oldest Dog

  • Owner and Dog Look-a-Like Couple of the Year

  • Best Costume

  • Mr. and Mrs. Congeniality

We will also pick a Homecoming King and Queen!
