Talent Hounds Roundup of 2017’s Westminster Dog Show Winners:

Rumor the German Shepherd wins Best In Show at 2017 Westminster Dog Show

Rumor the German Shepherd

I was so disappointed that my flights from Toronto got canceled because of huge snow storms and then I had a health issue so I did not attend The 141st annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show  in NYC as planned.

More than 3,000 dogs and 200+ breeds from across the US competed for titles in seven breed groups, and of course for the coveted “Best in Show” title over 2 days (February 13th and 14th).

Luckily, the WKC have made judging replays available by group and by breed. See group judging HERE .

Here is a quick recap of this year’s 7 group winners with photos provided by WKC:
