The National Dog Show 2023 has a winner! Our winner is a Sealyham male terrier whose name is Stache!
The cream-colored Sealyham male, with pretty long hair, just sweeping down from his wide forehead, was able to beat six other doggo finalists at the annual dog show competition, hosted graciously by Philadelphia’s Kennel Club and broadcasted by NBC on the occasion of Thanksgiving.
Stache, who is as tall as the knees of the judges, had to literally crane his neck to even look at the 1st prize he won – a silver platter. Margery Good, his handler, was smiling broadly when she accepted the award. At the time, she said, “He just gave a wonderful performance. He stretched his little short legs and hands and flew around this ring.”
Stache was able to defeat a group which included an Azawakh, a German shepherd, a Shih Tzu, a Chesapeake Bay retriever, and a Great Dane, a hound with roots in West Africa. Pumpkin is a Dalmatian won second place – in the show, the second place is known as Reserve Best. Amongst the 2,000 dogs out there, over 200 breeds as well as varieties competed in the event. There were
around 165 breeds that competed at the very first National Dog Show held in 2001.
Stache has a registered name. And its Goodspice Efbe Money Stache (GCHP). Stache is a resident of Honey Brook, Pennsylvania. And Pennsylvania isn’t far from where Stache won the prestigious award. Before his win, the terrier was also the No. 12-ranked All-Breed show dog, and the No. 2-ranked Terrier in America. Moreover, Stache won 49 Best in Show prizes.
The American Kennel Club has described Stache as “brave and spirited, but not as spiky as small terriers.”
