The American Bloodhound Club
Meritorious Service Award for a Bloodhound Nomination
The American Bloodhound Club may present one "Meritorious Service Award for a Bloodhound" per year. The Bloodhound and owner chosen for this award will receive a commemorative prize. Criteria for this award shall be the performance of extraordinary service to the community by a purebred Bloodhound as documented by either American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club, or other foreign registry. This service must be in the areas of volunteer search and rescue, law enforcement work, therapy work, or any other form of service achievement. Show or performance event records, including ABC mantrailing titles, are not acceptable qualifications for this award. The owner of the Bloodhound need not be an ABC member; rather, the dog and owner must have performed exemplary service to the community. Both living and deceased Bloodhounds are eligible for nomination.
