A wire fox terrier named Sky became America's top dog after winning Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club in New York.

This was the record 14th time a wire fox terrier has won America's biggest dog show. No other breed has won more than eight times.

A standard poodle named Ally was chosen as the runner-up, beating the other finalists: a Portuguese water dog, a bloodhound, an Irish water spaniel, a Cardigan Welsh corgi and a miniature pinscher.

There were 2,845 dogs entered in the 138th Westminster Kennel Club show. They were eligible in 190 breeds and varieties.
