Affenpinscher 'Banana Joe' is America's Top Dog: VIDEO


'Best in Show' at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show last night was Banana Joe, a monkey-faced Affenpinscher who beat out a Portuguese water dog, a Sheepdog, a Bichon Frise, an American foxhound, a fox terrier, and a wirehaired Pointer.

Last night's win was his first at Westminster, though he has won 86 other shows. He's now retiring, the NYT reports.

Watch ABC News' report on the win as well as his appearance on Anderson Live,

  1. It's useful to learn about the terrible effects of trying to breed towards a standard.

    Dog shows suck.

  4. Is black the color this year in dog shows? Last week, I watched the Eukenuba dog show. 6 of the 7 top dogs were black. The one dog that wasn't black actually won the whole show.

  6. he's cute, all dogs are. and he's got a distinct look to him.

    but this dog show should allow mutts, and not just pure breds.
