Two new breeds are entering the ring in an annual Thanksgiving tradition on NBC.

The Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen (GBGV) and Nederlandse Kooikerhondje will be among more than 2,000 canines in the 2018 National Dog Show.

The American Kennel Club (AKC) describes the GBGV as "a sweet-faced, long-eared fellow in a shaggy coat." It is part of the hound group .

The Nederlandse Kooikerhondje is in the sporting group. The AKC describes the breed as "sporty, eye-catching fellow with a silky all-weather coat of white with red patches."

The National Dog Show is hosted by actor John O'Hurley and AKC-licensed judge David Frei. Olympians Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir will offer viewers a look behind the scene.

The National Dog Show airs after the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC15 at Noon on Thursday. An encore presentation will air Saturday at 7:00 p.m.
