NEW YORK, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Uno became the first beagle in history to garner the best-in-show prize at the Westminster Kennel Club show in New York Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The nearly 3-year-old, 15-inch-tall canine competitor Monday became the first beagle to win the hound division since 1939, before trotting to the overall victory Tuesday night.

Judge Ralph Lemcke said Uno had made quite an impression at Monday's competition.

"This is one of the best hounds I've ever seen," he told The New York Times.

Uno, whose full name is "Champion K-Run's Park Me In First," beat out six other top dogs Tuesday night for the best-in-show honor.
