Six dogs competed in the final round after Colton the schipperke, who won the non-sporting group, was disqualified due to a conflict of interest between the dog’s owners and the family of Best in Show judge, Peter Green.

“Tonight is about the performance, which one really asks for it,” Green said. “They’re all beautiful.”

“After you win this magnificent show there’s really nothing else to win. He should be running around in a field of grass,” Rangel (King’s handler) said moments after King won the terrier group and claimed the top trophy over finalists from five other groups.
