WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, YORK COUNTY—He wins the Westminster Kennel Club's Best in Show and he's from right here in Central Pennsylvania.
4-year-old Malachy, a Pekingese from Washington Township, York County wins this year's bowl and ribbon at the biggest dog show of the year.
"Everybody starts yelling there's the champ there goes the champ. Can I have my picture taken with the champ?" said owner, David Fitzpatrick.
The Westminster Kennel Club Dog show is celebrating its 136th year.
Fox43 talks to the proud owner who tells us, he had never even seen Malachy before he bought him online from a breeder in the U.K.
"I picked him up and opened up his crate and looked at him and thought, 'Hey you look pretty good,' only a few dogs have a chance of winning a show like that," said owner David Fitzpatrick.
David Fitzpatrick said Malachy is retiring this year.
