Wire Fox Terrier Takes Top Honor at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
GCHB CH Kingarthur Van Foliny Home also known as King for short, a Wire Fox Terrier handled by Gabriel Rangel received top honors at the 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, which was held at Madison Square Garden in New York on Feb. 12.
King is the 12th Purina Pro Plan-fed "Best In Show" winner in the last 13 years.
“Pro Plan continues to be the food of choice of handlers and owners for many of the top competitors in conformation, helping them perform at their very best,” said Gianna DeiSanti, brand director with Purina Pro Plan, a brand of St. Louis-based Nestlé Purina PetCare. “We're proud to play a role in these champions' journeys to ‘Best In Show,’ and we congratulate Gabriel and King on their well-deserved success.”
Purina Pro Plan has more than 70 formulas across four specialized nutritional platforms to help meet a variety of needs. Its science is backed by 500 Purina scientists, including nutritionists, veterinarians and behaviorists globally who continuously rethink what nutrition can do, said company officials.
“King eats Purina Pro Plan Focus Sensitive Skin and Stomach Salmon and Rice formula because it’s the only food that keeps his skin and coat healthy while giving him the energy to perform like the champion he was tonight,” Rangel said.
