A wire fox terrier won "Best in Show" at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in NY on Tuesday, emerging as the top dog among almost 3,000 barking, tail-wagging competitors.

Because of the disqualification, Colton and Cook were asked to leave the ring before the best in show competition, leaving just six dogs to square off instead of the usual seven.

A Havanese named Bono came in second among the more than 2,800 dogs who entered.

"After you win this magnificent competition, there's nothing more to do", Rangel said of King's future.

Six pedigree dogs competed in the final instead of the usual seven because the victor of the non-sporting canine group, a schipperke named Colton, was ruled ineligible before the "best in show" competition began.

Officials said that there was a conflict of interest because Colton's owners had a relationship with the best in show judge, Peter Green.

King, who is 7 years old, became the 15th wire fox terrier to win the prestigious title with his handler, Rangel, of California, scoring his third win for Best in Show.

At the outset of the "Best in Show" round, Colton was brought out to the audience and allowed to parade around briefly with the other finalists.

Bean the Sussex Spaniel won for the sporting group.

Colton was introduced on stage with the rest of the finalists, but wasn't eligible for judging.

After two days of strutting his stuff, King will enjoy the traditional Westminster Dog Show victory lap.

The Westminster Kennel Club's show, in its 143rd year, is the second oldest US sporting event, behind only the Kentucky Derby horse race. Brennan and Heart impressed the judge with a freestyle routine inspired by the 1956 film "The Red Balloon", which saw the dog tugging a red balloon at Brennan's command.

Two dogs were excused from the ring in the sporting group competition hours later.
