Highlights from the 2019 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Best in Show at the 2018 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Goes to…

Congratulations to King, a Wire Fox Terrier, who beat out thousands of dogs to win the top prize – Best in Show – at the 143st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show last evening at Madison Square Garden in New York City. King’s victory furthers the reign of the Wire Fox Terrier, the breed with the most wins in the history of the dog show.

King, a seven year-old male who’s full name is GCHB CH Kingarthur Van Foliny Home, hails from Brazil and was the top terrier worldwide in 2018. His handler, Gabriel Rangel, is also no stranger to the winner’s circle – he was the handler for previous Best in Show winners Sadie the Scottie in 2010 and Sky the Wire Fox Terrier in 2014.
