Ch. Brigadier Reynalton, Bred by Nina Elms, Ch. Leo of Reynalthon X Comely of Reyalthon A.K.C. 965426, Leo of Reynolton considered one of the greatest hounds bred in 1920s. Undefeated in Britain before he was imported by Dodge, Brigadier was also undefeated in breed competition in America in 45 shows. He won the breed at Westminster for five consecutive years, although he was not entered in 1933, the year that Dodge judged BIS.
He became the first Bloodhound to earn an AKC BIS March 11, 1936 at Columbus, OH. He again won Best at Baltimore later that same year. He accumulated a show record of 23 groups and 2 BIS. BOB Westminster 1939, 1937 Sporting Group I Eastern Dog Club. Bloodhound popularity was at low ebb both in America and Britain during these years. By campaigning Brigadier from coast to coast, Dodge brought the breed much needed publicity.
