Scottish terrier ahead of the pack at dog show
Posted on December 16, 2009 under Industry News
The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship dog show in Long Beach, California has named their new champion – a Scottish Terrier whose full name is Ch. Roundtown Mercedes of Maryscot, or Sadie for short, according to the Los Angeles Times.
This isn’t Sadie’s first time being top dog. She also won in the Terrier group at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show and was named Best in Show at the National Dog Show.
Sadie beat out nearly 5,000 dogs for the coveted title. While Sadie got the bragging rights, her owner Amelia Musser received the $50,000 prize.
The show also features performance categories that dogs can win. Count Tyler Show Me the Money, or Tyler, was crowned the show’s top obedience dog. The Labrador Retriever took the prize for a second year in a row.
While dog health is very important to be crowned Best in Show, Sadie’s breed may have worked in her favor as the Westminster Kennel Club revealed that Scottish terriers are the second most common dog crowned Best in Show, only behind Fox Terriers.
