Malachy the Pekingese has the face of a winner, and judges have thought so, too — three other times throughout the 136-year history of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. But the Pekingese's prowess as best in show pales in comparison to the English Springer Spaniel (the breed is a six-time winner), Scottish terrier (an eight-time winner), and Wirehaired Fox Terrier — the breed has won the top dog title a whopping 13 times. And Malachy's win ties the smoosh-nosed toy with seven other breeds who have also claimed the best in show title four times. Check out this roundup of all breeds who have won more than once.
Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show judge Cindy Vogels had a seriously tough job last night selecting a Best in Show winner among Capi the German Shepherd, Fifi the Doberman Pinscher, Emily the Irish Setter, Ian the Dalmatian, Chelsey the Kerry Blue Terrier, Cinders the Wirehaired Dachshund, and Malachy the Pekingese. It was a nail-biter, but ultimately Malachy (Ch Palacegarden Malachy) prevailed! Hats off to this little lion of a pooch! Here at PetSugar, Malachy also earned two more prizes, edging out Emily the Irish Setter for best hair and Cinders the Wirehaired Dachshund in the best waddle category.
