An English bulldog from Corrigan in Polk County has emerged as the best of his breed at the prestigious Westminster Dog Show in New York.

“Brix,” a bulldog raised in Corrigan by his owner, Mary Grider, won the “Best in Breed” category Monday afternoon at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the top dog show in the world.

“It was really exciting,” Grider said. “I had to get out of the way, because Brix kept trying to walk to me, but eventually the judge brought him to the front of the line, meaning he won.”

Brix went on to compete in the non-sporting group, where he did not place, but did make the cut.

“Making the cut in itself is an honor, even though he didn’t win the group,” Grider said. “Plus we beat the poodle, which as a bulldog owner you always want to do,” she said with a laugh.

Grider has been showing bulldogs since 2002.  She said she has always loved bulldogs, as she has lived in Corrigan all her life, where the high school mascot is — what else? — the Bulldogs.
