Wired to win: Wire fox terrier is Westminster best in show

012919AKC21TB

Perhaps the biggest surprise so far in this year's show, held at New York's Madison Square Garden, was Colton, a schipperke who won a shot at Best in Show over long-time favorites in the non-sporting group, such as the standard poodle and the bichon frise.

Wire fox terriers are still King at Westminster.

A day after earning a coveted spot in the final ring of seven at the Westminster Kennel Club, Colton the schipperke was ruled ineligible for best in show Tuesday night. He's the 15th wire fox terrier to win "Best in Show". "Every one of you".

Green is a renowned figure in the dog world, especially for his work with terriers. "He's best in show".

But although King's performance was undeniably superb, viewers were outraged, instead calling for Best in Show to be awarded to the exquisite longhaired dachshund named Burns. "The head, the expression".

Cook said Colton's team was told earlier in the day that he was ineligible. "The way he stands and performs, he's the whole package". Those two competitions are the only parts of Westminster that allow mixed-breed dogs (dubbed "all-American" dogs) to compete.

There was a conflict of interest between the dog's owners and the family of the best in show judge. That's because the judge was a breeder of both dogs.

Dog drama at Westminster: The schipperke got skipped.

A wire fox terrier, originally bred to help hunt foxes, should be "alert, quick of movement, keen of expression, on the tip-toe of expectation at the slightest provocation", reads the American Kennel Club's official standard.

The dog show features 3,000 dogs from around the country. "And they don't stress out the way some of the more sensitive breeds do".

Second place this year went to a Havanese named Bono.

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. "Burns has won 26 best in show titles at various dog shows, but never at Westminster, the New York Times reported".

Wilma has logged 60 best-in-show wins in her career, but Shepherd says winning the group at Westminster is "the stuff you dream of".
