The Dog That Win National Dog Show looks like little Chewbacca

The winner of the National Dog Show looks like an adorable little Chewbacca among the winners on Thanksgiving Day: Newton, the Brussels Griffon. The furry little guy was crowned” Best in Show "at the National Dog Show, winning the toy group also known as a.k.a. lapdogs, before winning the six other group champion: Portuguese water dog,  an English springer spaniel, a whippet, a French Bulldog, an American Staffordshire terrier, and an Old English Sheepdog. Noah, a Portuguese water dog, finished second place.

The parade of the adorable dodginess, broadcast after the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade, has become an annual tradition and rating of Bonanza for NBC, snagging more than 20 million viewers each year. The competition, organized by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, took place late last week, but the results were kept secret until today's broadcast.

Newton, officially known as GCH Somerset Wynzall Hashtag, competed against another 2000 dogs for the title. No big deal: the 3 years old, who one Twitter user described as Chewbacca look-like, has a 21 other "Best in show" award, but this is the first time that a Brussels Griffon has won the national dog show since the NBC sports began broadcasting it in 2002.
