Over 15-thousand purebred dogs from around the world are taking part in the World Dog Show in Madrid.
The multi-day event, which started on Thursday and is set to end on Sunday, makes its return after a 2-year COVID-19 hiatus.
Featuring breeds such as Dachshunds, the Peruvian hairless dog, and many more, the dog show counts 250 of the 400 breeds that are recognized by the International Canine Federation.
The event sees the canines compete in front of international referees across 70 rings.
This is the third time that Spain has hosted the World Dog Show.
It was previously the host in 1983 and 1992.
The next World Dog Show is set to take place this December in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro.
