Rumor has it! German shepherd takes top prize at dog show

Wayne County corgi doesn't advance at Westminster dog show

In the non-sporting group, top honors went to Aftin, a miniature poodle, and a German Shepherd named Rumor topped the "Herding" group.

A San Antonio-bred Canaan dog has won best of breed at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in NY for the second year in a row.

The excitement is building in NY, with the Westminster Kennel Club show well underway.

She'd been at home in Wisconsin for months, a house pet headed toward having puppies.

This was the 104tht career win for Rumor, and handler and co-owner Kent Boyles said earlier in the day that this would definitely be her last show.

"He's the type of dog you want to have a beer with", noted Adrian's handler Adam Bernardin while speaking with The New York Times.

"The German shepherd standard talks about quality and nobility".

The coveted Best in Show, Pewter Bowl recipient, can also influence an interest in that particular breed for years to come.

Rumor raised up for a well-deserved treat right after the win.

The German Shepherd was named after the British singer's hit song "Rumor Has It". Rumor's handler, Kent Boyles, considered retiring his dog from competition, but made a decision to bring back the 5-year-old for one more run at glory.

"Babies, I hope", Boyles said about her future at a press conference after the show.

Almost 2,800 dogs from 200 breeds competed this year.

That's because Best in Show will be awarded Tuesday night, as one doggo will be crowned the champion of doggos.
