NEW YORK (AP) — Sky the wire fox terrier has become America’s top dog.

Sky won best in show at the 138th Westminster Kennel Club on Tuesday night. The wire fox terrier beat out a standard poodle, a Portuguese water dog, bloodhound, an Irish water spaniel, a Cardigan Welsh corgi and a miniature pinscher.

Judge Betty Regina Leininger picked the winner at a nearly full Madison Square Garden. The standard poodle named Ally was chosen as the runner-up.

This was the record 14th time a wire fox terrier has won at the nation’s top dog show. Sky has won 129 best in shows overall, and was ranked as the country’s No. 1 show dog last year.

There were 2,845 dogs entered in the show. They were eligible in 190 breeds and varieties.
