Salzburg (OTS) - The World Dog Show 2012 has finished the choosing of the most beautiful dog in the world. For three days of last weekend was Salzburg the dog-capitol.  There were more than 6.000 dogs on the last day (sunday) in the area. The organizers - Austrian Kennel Club - can see a successful event now: all the visitors have seen of the most colorful selection of the dogs from all parts of our world. So the final feeling will stay focused on happy and satisfied visitors - even if they walk on two or four legs :-)
