Meet celeb parents with huskies as Beverly Hills Dog Show 2019 crowns Nick the Siberian Husky as winner
The 4th 'Annual Beverly Hills Dog Show', which took place on Sunday (May 17), featured nearly 2,000 pooches as they competed against one another for the coveted title. Although each of the adorable creatures put their skills on display, Nick the Siberian husky emerged winner with a total of 60 Best in Show wins.
Nick the Siberian husky competed under the show name CGHP Shaein Nick of Dynasty RC Kennel and was accompanied by his handler, Michelle Scott. Nick had also won in the Working Group category, which included McConnaughey the English Springer Spaniel, Luna the Cairn terrier, Piper the bloodhound, Joan the Chinese Shar-pei, Conrad the Shetland sheepdog and Bono the Havanese.
Talking about Nick’s win, Scott told PEOPLE, “Dogs like Nick have to have the determination and a great energy about them. At the end of the day, it’s a long day, its hot in the ring and Nick is a real athlete and with that, he has a big hear.”
"He really likes to just hang out. We live out in the country so he likes to come with us when we go biking along the canal. At the end of the day, he’s just a dog,” she further added.
