The elegant Scottish terrier overcame dog-eat-dog competition last night and wowed the crowd at Madison Square Garden to take Best in Show honors at the 134th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
"She was perfect. I couldn't ask for anything else," said Sadie's handler, Gabriel Rangel.
Sadie entered the show as the No. 1 dog in the country but had to go snout to snout with the No. 2 ranked show dog, a hard-nosed Doberman named C.J., who won the working group and was backed by a large segment of dog lovers at the Garden.
