Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show 2021 LIVE: Final dog show results in as Best in Show contenders are named

THE winner of the annual Westminster dog show was announced just after 11pm on Sunday, with Wasabi the Perkingese taking Best in Show.

The annual show — held from June 11 to 13 — kicked off in Tarrytown, New York this year, instead of Madison Square Garden, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Bourbon the whippet, Wasabi the Pekingese, and Mathew the French bulldog were selected as contenders for Best in Show after Saturday’s competitions.

Additional contenders were chosen on Sunday night to compete for Best in Show.

They were Connor the Old English sheepdog, Jade the short-haired pointer, Striker the Samoyed, and Boy the West Highland white terrier.




The 145th Westminster dog show launched on Friday, June 11, and concluded on Sunday, June 13.

The Best in Show is the highest award given at dog shows.

The sought-after trophy was awarded under a tent outside the Lyndhurst mansion in Tarrytown, not in the sports palace of MSG.

The show also featured four breeds that were eligible to compete for the first time — the barbet, the dogo Argentino, the Belgian Laekenois, and the Biewer terrier.
