Rumor the German Shepherd was the top dog at the 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, taking home the coveted Best in Show honor Tuesday night from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The five-year-old winner of the working group — who is named after Adele’s hit song, “Rumor Has It” — had been favored to win last year, but was beaten out by C.J. the German Shorthaired Pointer.
This year, Rumor finally got her shining moment by beating out Adrian the Irish Setter, who took Reserve Best in Show.
A herding breed hasn’t won Best in Show since 1987.

Rumor (above) hails from Edgerton, Wisconsin, and came to New York City with her handler Kent Boyles.
Also making it to the final round of seven for Best in Show consideration were: a Norwegian Elkhoud, a Poodle, a Pekingese, a Boxer and a Norwich Terrier.
As usual, the Westminster Dog Show took over Madison Square Garden for the past few days, with canines from Corgis, Terriers and Bulldogs to Great Danes, Whippets and Australian Shepherds strutting their stuff for the judges.
It is not yet known if Rumor will meet with President Donald Trump, as has been tradition for the Best in Show winner since 2010.
