German shepherd named Rumor is America's new top dog

The final victor will be announced on Tuesday evening after three other finalists are named in the sporting, working and terrier groups. There are 30 breeds in the Working Group.

In my book, she earned mega-points for being not just a good dog, but the best dog.

The herding victor, Rumor, won the category for the second consecutive year. Boyles said this was her last major competition.

Madison Square Garden was almost at capacity on Valentines Day, with bursts of fervent applause for popular breeds like the Golden Retriever and St. Bernard, and knowing laughs as handlers used treats to try to coax silence from yappy contestants.

But he retired as chairman in May and this year, he can't see any of the show until the final round Tuesday night. The winners of seven groups then compete for the final "Best in Show" award on Tuesday.

The Westminster Dog Show is underway, the annual march of well-bred critters and the people who handle them across our TV screens. It was the 39th time that a female has won the top prize.

More than 2,800 dogs trotting onto the ultimate dog show where pooches fiercely compete to be America's top paw star.

A Pekingese named Chuckie from Champaign, Ill., took the toy group.

"He's a terribly spoiled dog; a awful mama's boy", said Wyatt. Dogs are judged on characteristics specific to their breeds. Aftin, a miniature poodle from Wentzville, Mo., represented the non-sporting group. 2017 also marked the first year the competition showcased cats.

She had been favored to win Westminster a year ago, but finished runner-up in the Best in Show finale.

"We're not nervous", handler Adam Bernardin told FS1, the Fox network that broadcast the contest, before the lustrous copper dog, who won the sporting group the same night, advanced to best in show. The overall championship was won by Trick, a 6-year-old border collie.
