Wired To Win: Wire Fox Terrier Is Westminster Best In Show

The Westminster Dog Show crowned a Wire Fox Terrier named "King" its "Best in Show" Tuesday, further burnishing the breed's "top dog" status in the esteemed competition.

King the Wire Fox Terrier won for the terrier group. The competition drew 2,800 dogs from 203 breeds and varieties.

Maybe they shouldn't have been: the outcome marked the 15th time a wire fox captured the highest prize at the country's most prestigious dog show, more than any other breed by a wide margin.

Bono, a Havanese from Menlo Park, California named for the U2 frontman, was named reserve best in show after winning the toy group.

"We never had any expectation of winning the Non-Sporting Group as no Schipperke in history has ever won the Group at this show and we focused exclusively on creating a spectacular performance in the breed- level competition", she wrote.

"The judge is the most famous terrier man in the world", Rangel said. He taught so much to everybody...and it's like he's saying to you: "You it!"

The actor is coming off the huge success of Aquaman , which has grossed more than $1.1 billion worldwide in about seven weeks. Per the latest report, he'll be playing a guy named Duncan Idaho - which is the most Momoa-sounding character name ever.

The championship round featured six dogs instead of the customary seven contestants after Colton the Schipperke was excluded because of a conflict of interest.

"These types of things happen at dog shows and the rules are such to maintain the integrity of the sport", the club said in a statement.

The rest of the show's final ring included Bean the Sussex spaniel Burns the longhaired dachshund, Wilma the boxer and Baby Lars the bouviers des Flandres.

Judges picked the remaining three finalists on Tuesday before the main event.

The crowd at Madison Square Garden seemed nearly taken aback when judge Peter Green revealed his choice over a pair of overwhelmingly popular favorites: a longhaired dachshund looking to break a centuries-spanning hoodoo and a charismatic Sussex spaniel back in the final ring for the second year in a row.

The Westminster Kennel Club's show, in its 143rd year, is the second oldest USA sporting event, behind only the Kentucky Derby horse race.
