It’s in the name!
King the wire fox terrier triumphed at the second annual Beverly Hills Dog Show Presented by Purina, claiming the coveted Best in Show title
Handler Gabriel Rangel helped King, full name GCH Kingarthur von Foliny Home, strut his way to victory during the show, which aired on April 1.
“He knows something happened,” Rangel said of the canine’s reaction to the big win.
King beat out six other group winners in the final round of the show to claim the top spot. Remy the Vizsla, Piper the bloodhound, Xander the Newfoundland, Bono the Havanese, Jango the Keeshound and Conrad the Shetland sheepdog all made it to the Best in Show judging, but couldn’t beat the wire fox terrier.
