Annabelle, an English Bulldog, beat out a Dalmatian to score the Non-Sporting prize, and the crowd went wild at the result. However, it was Rumor, the German Shepherd who won the Herding group, who was the crowd favorite of the night.
The 4-year old Rumor is considered a favorite for the top prize, per USA Today. When asked what she loves best about the pooch, owner Pamela Buckles said “Her heart. The love and affection she shows me. I just think she’s beautiful.” Will the judges share the same thought and crown her Best In Show? There’s only one way to find out.
