If you caught the dog show these past two days, then you’ve heard who won Best in Show. That’s right, the winner was a Pekingese dog named Malachy. The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show took place over February 13-14th at Madison Square Garden in New York and featured over 2,000 dogs.

The 11-pound furry four-legger, handled by David Fitzpatrick beat, out a Dalmatian, German Shepherd, Doberman Pinscher, Irish Setter, Kerry Blue Terrier and Wire-haired Dachshund for the title.

Malachy is 4 years old and is the fourth Pekingese to win at Westminster and the first since 1990. This is his 115th overall best in show. Now that Malachy has been proclaimed champion, he will retire to a house with a big back yard with lots of room for squirrel chasing.
