German shepherd crowned victor at Westminster dog show

German shepherd crowned victor at Westminster dog show”

Now comes the breed judging, and the much-anticipated Best in Show on Tuesday evening.

On Tuesday, Trotter beamed as she prepared to present her dog, Duffy, which triumphed late Monday in the Hound category over beagles, fox hounds and a whippet, among others.

"She is just magnificent", the judge, Thomas H. Bradley III, commented.

As in years past, the dog show was being held in New York City at two locations, Madison Square Garden and Piers 92 and 94 on the Hudson River. But this is why he's a show dog - even with the "world's most famous arena" going nuts and his handler being approached by everyone, the German Shepherd keeps his cool and just waits patiently for a treat, which he more than earned.

Rumor, a German shepherd, stands next to Kent Boyleshis, the handler after it won "Best in Show" at the Westminster Kennel Club 141st Annual Dog Show in New York, Feb. 14, 2017.

The victor is typically crowned after two days of competition-first competing within breeds in seven categories (Herding, Hound, Non-Sporting, Sporting, Terrier, Toy, Working), then in the finals.

Watching little Raina McCloskey romp around the Westminster dog show ring with her borzoi buddy, it was hard to tell who was leading whom. It was the 39th time that a female has won the top prize.

"He's a terribly spoiled dog; a bad mama's boy", said Wyatt.

Rumor is only the second dog from the herding group to win Best in Show. A 1-year-old pekingese named Chuckie won the toy dog group.

You know what's coming next: That, right there, is an extremely good dog.
