Other than the Canadian Hound Show, The Southern Hound Show is the only show where all hound types (English, American and Crossbred) compete against each other. Furthermore, as there are two Crossbred rings at Virginia, this is the only time these packs go head to head in every class.
The show does not allow past Grand Champions of the Southern Hound Show to show in any class that qualifies for a championship. Therefore, Midland Roxanne ‘07 was shown only in Brood Bitch with Produce and Live Oak Steamy ‘07 was shown only in the Two Couple of Bitches. Sadly, Mooreland Edna ‘07, Grand Champion of Show in 2008, was killed this season on the highway near the body of a dead coyote. Live Oak Maximus ‘09, 2010 Grand Champion of the Virginia Foxhound Show was not shown as Master Marty Wood is not a believer in continuing to campaign major winners.
