Thor the bulldog comes out on top
This big guy doesn’t need a hammer; all he needs are his dashing good looks and skills.
At this year’s National Dog Show, judges pronounced Thor, a stout, chunky little bulldog, the top dog at the event.
“This dog is a hunk,” said co-host David Frei.
Two-year-old Thor beat out more than 1,900 dogs to take best in show. Thor one over the judges’ hearts with his cute little waddle and looks, which are being compared to Winston Churchill.
Thor has already become a champion on the professional dog circuit as he has several best-of-shows to his name, but this win makes puts him on a global scale.
But what’s even better is that this is a big win for bulldogs all over the country. Bulldogs are the fifth most popular breed in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club.
The National Dog Show itself, which was presented by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia and sponsored by Purina, is now in its 18th year and airs right after the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade. The purpose of the Dog Show is to showcase purebreds and help viewers understand their history, personalities, and temperaments. All of this is to help families decide which breed (or mix) is best for them.
