NEW YORK (AP) - Three new dog breeds will appear at the
Westminster Kennel Club show in New York City next week.

The animals were entered in the 134th annual event that starts
Monday at Madison Square Garden after being recognized as official breeds by the American Kennel Club.

The sleek Irish red and white setter is a high-energy dog but is
gentle. The Pyrenean shepherd, native to France, has guarded sheep since medieval times. Hundreds lost their lives in World War I, searching for wounded men or as couriers.

The third breed - the Norwegian buhund (BOO-hoond) that goes
back to Viking times - is loyal and has a good work ethic. Its
thick coat is either black or cream-colored.

The dogs are to be introduced at a Garden news conference
Friday.
