(New York, NY) A canine with Toledo-area ties wins Best in Show at this year's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. "Rumor" the German Shepherd had won the herding group Monday night, then followed that up with the best in show designation over six competitors last night.
The five-year old German shepherd is co-owned by a Springfield Township woman-- and finished second overall last year at Westminster. It's been 30 years since the breed last won the top honors.
Rumor actually pulled a shocker, coming out of retirement for the win. She had become a house pet headed toward having puppies, when she came back to the show ring last month. Rumor is named for the Adele hit song "Rumor Has It."
