Sky, a 4-year-old fox wire terrier, was chosen as "Best In Show" over 1,500 other canines at Thursday's dog show, one year after a fox wire terrier named Eira won the title, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.
Sky is co-owned by Victor Malzoni of Sao Paolo, Brazil, and Torie Steele of Malibu, who also co-owns Eira.
"Sky is a very beautiful wire fox terrier," handler Gabriel Rangel told People magazine. "She is a natural show dog with a short, well-balanced body. She has a beautiful head and her face is unbelievable."
Best in Show judge Vicki Abbott said in a release from the National Dog Show she was impressed with Sky's "keen expression and that dense, wiry coat."
"The handler let her show herself and she performed," she said.
