Meet Rumor, the Beautiful German Shepherd that Captured the Top Prize in the Herding Group the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

If you didn't tune in to last Monday night's portion of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, you might have missed the raucous cheers for the beautiful German Shepherd that captured the top prize in the Herding group. Her call name is Rumor, and she won best in show last Tuesday, becoming only the second German Shepherd ever to take home top honor at Westminster.

At last year's Westminster, Rumor also won the Herding group to advance to the best in show judging, but she fell short of taking home the big trophy, which went to CJ the German Shorthaired Pointer. This year, she staged a valiant comeback, and by the chanting from the crowd at Madison Square Garden, her many fans are thrilled.

Rumor, whose full name is Lockenhaus' Rumor Has It V Kenlyn, is a 5-year-old pup hailing from Wisconsin. She has countless championships under her belt and spends nearly all her time with her handler, co-owner, and cobreeder Kent Boyles. Immediately after winning, Kent was asked what's next for Rumor, as it is common for Westminster champions to retire. His answer was simple: he's going to find her a husband so they can have some puppies.
