Thor the Bulldog and 6 Other Very Good Boys and Girls From the 2019 National Dog Show (Photos)
Thor the Bulldog dropped the hammer on the competition on Thursday, beating out 2,000 other dogs in taking home the top prize at the National Dog Show — and likely setting himself up for a tasty Thanksgiving feast, too. He wasn’t the only cute pup that competed in the NDS this year, however. Thor’s final six competitors included a Golden Retriever, a Havanese, an Old English Sheepdog, a Pharaoh Hound, a Siberian Husky and a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. Check out another picture of Thor in the next slide, followed by some of the other lovable hounds afterwards.
The champ is a 2-year-old dog and weighs about 60 pounds. He is, as you’d expect, a very good boy. “Thor is an active and sweet dog and very athletic,” handler Eduardo Paris said after the event aired on NBC. “You should see how high he can jump. He loves to play with his kennel-mate Chihuahuas, and he has beautiful construction, I think that’s why he won.” Thor technically won the “Best in Show” award earlier this month at the NDS event in Philadelphia, but didn’t get his national shine until it aired earlier today.
