Winston becomes the first French Bulldog in history to win Best in Show at the National Dog Show

A French Bulldog named Winston put on a feat never seen before at America’s National Dog Show.

The annual event that judges only the best boys and girls has crowned numerous breeds in the past.

However, the humble Frenchie has always missed the top spot.

That’s despite the breed being the second most popular in the US, with Labrador retrievers coming in at number one.

Whether it’s their adorable goofy look on their face, their sometimes labored breathing or because they waddle beautifully when they walk, it’s unclear why a French Bulldog has never sat on the National Dog Show throne.

However, that was until Winston entered this year’s contest.

What’s even more hilarious is that Winston didn’t even compete under that name.

NPR says the dog was officially known on the National Dog Show as “GCHP Fox Canyon’s I Won The War at Goldshield.”

utilities That is the name of a winner.

The French Bulldog had already won 77 Best in Show competitions when he entered the National Dog Show in 2022.

He faced stiff competition as the event saw 1,500 entrants from 200 breeds.

But Winston managed to pull off the seemingly impossible and etched his name into the history books.

His name was read as Best in Show at the end of the tournament and his owner couldn’t be more pleased.

The National Dog Show’s Best in Show judge, Vicki Seiler-Cushman, said in a statement to People magazine: “He is a show dog with personality and beauty and is a perfect fit for the breed.

“He has this dazzling look that says ‘I’m here to win tonight’.

“You can just see that he can also go home and be the perfect pet.”

Winston’s 78th Best in Show now makes Winston the number one ranked dog of all breeds in the US.

Purina, who sponsors the event, had nothing but praise for Winston.

“What an incredibly handsome boy! Congratulations to Winston and all the great dogs this year #National Dog Show” it wrote on Twitter.

Others were quick to congratulate the dog, with one person saying, “Legendary moment.”

Another added: “Congratulations on the very good boy, Winston.”
