Westminster Dog Show: Five spunky Best in Show winners
The Westminster Dog Show in New York draws nearly 2,500 entrants a year, with handlers spending as much as $1 million a year on a single dog. Here are the dogs who won Best in Show in each of the past five years.
1. 2006 - Rufus (colored bull terrier)
Rufus was the first bull terrier to win Best in Show since 1919, marking a major step for a competition that critics had said lacked breed diversity. After retiring, Rufus was put to stud, and became something of an ambassador for his breed.
[Editor's note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Rufus was the first bull terrier to win Best in Show.]
