NORWALK–When Laura Bollenbach found her 10 1/2-year-old dog Brandy at a humane society kennel eight years ago, the beagle-German shepherd cross was loaded with fleas, had rotten teeth and ear infections.

“She was a mess,” Bollenbach said before the squat, dark furred Brandy went into the ring at the Greenwich Kennel’s Club’s 78th annual dog show, which took place at Taylor Farm Park in East Norwalk.

In short, the shedding, unperfumed and kind of ugly Brandy is, well, all a dog shouldn’t be at one of the largest and most prestigious American Kennel Club-sanctioned shows in this part of Connecticut.

But this year, for the first time in the AKC’s 125-year history, mutts, er, mixed breeds or All-American Dogs, as they are officially referred to in this year’s 244-page Greenwich Kennel Club show catalogue, are welcome to participate in some events.
