German Shepherd Wins Westminster With An Ocala Dog Winning Too
Congratulations to Rumor, a German shepherd, who was named after an Adele song and coming out of retirement, on winning Best in Show in last night's Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Rumor beat out a Norwegian elkhound, a Pekingese, a miniature poodle, an Irish setter, a boxer and a Norwich terrier in the final ring. The Irish setter called Adrian finished second. Two Ocala entries: Winston, a Norfolk terrier and Mick, a Skye terrier didn't make the final round but Winston did place 4th in the terrier group. Both were handled at Bannerdown kennel in northwest Marion County. As for Rumor, who birth a little of puppies before returning to dog shows, she's just the second German shepherd to champion at the event that began in 1877.
