‘Charlie’ Is First Skye Terrier to Win ‘The National Dog Show Presented by Purina’

Dog Show

2015 NDS Recap
PurinaProClub.com

The static buildup on the blue carpet during “The National Dog Show Presented by Purina®” didn’t shake “Charlie,” a 4-year-old male Skye Terrier. Led by pro handler Larry Cornelius, GCH Cragsmoor Good Time Charlie gave an unwavering and dazzling performance to wow the crowd and judge Beth Sweigart, capturing Best in Show and making breed history.

“Charlie is an outstanding example of the breed. He is well-muscled and has a long, powerful head with a low, level topline and beautiful coat,” Sweigart said.

The first Skye Terrier to win The National Dog Show, Charlie has earned 79 Bests in Show throughout his two years on the show circuit. He currently is the No. 1 Terrier and No. 3 dog in the country.

“Charlie is on another level. He puts his heart into showing,” said Cornelius. “Outside of the ring, he’s a normal dog who loves to play with his stuffed alligator toy.”

Charlie is one of seven Pro Plan®-powered dogs to win the seven Groups at The National Dog Show, making it the second consecutive year Pro Plan®-fed dogs have swept The National Dog Show. Congratulations to all!
