King - a wire fox terrier - took best in show at last week’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. He lives at handler Gabriel Rangel’s kennel in Rialto. 

Rangel isn’t new to winning - he’s now won the top prize at Westminster three times. It’s a stressful, emotional competition as the judges whittle down a field of over 2,000 dogs until there’s just one left.
