Typically powerful and intelligent, the working pups truly have jobs to do. From police and guard assistance to amazing rescues, these "gentle giants" are big favorites getting big results. In the top four this year, you may not recognize that breed on the bottom right. That's a Tibetan Mastiff, first shown at last year's Westminster, and already placing in his group. Kudos!

Sadly neither he nor the newest breed this year won the group. Learn who did when you read more.

It's the pretty Giant Schnauzer, Spirit. She's certainly lovely and serves as the last competitor from our final group to compete in this year's Best in Show.
