And The Winner Is…The Wire Fox Terrier! – The 12th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Champion in 13 Years to be Fueled by Purina Pro Plan

GCHB CH Kingarthur Van Foliny Home also known as King for short, a Wire Fox Terrier handled by Gabriel Rangel received top honors at the 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City, becoming the 12th Purina Pro Plan-fed “Best In Show” winner in the last 13 years.

Purina Pro Plan has a long, rich history in conformation. It is the food of choice for 95 of the top 100 American Kennel Club (AKC) All Breed Show Champions1, and in addition to the “Best In Show” winner from the Terrier Group the other six Westminster Group winners are also Purina Pro Plan-fed2.

“Pro Plan continues to be the food of choice of handlers and owners for many of the top competitors in conformation, helping them perform at their very best,” said Gianna DeiSanti, Brand Director with Purina Pro Plan. ”We’re proud to play a role in these champions’ journeys to ‘Best In Show,’ and we congratulate Gabriel and King on their well-deserved success.”

With more than 70 formulas across four specialized nutritional platforms to help meet a variety of needs, Purina Pro Plan is a leader in the performance nutrition category. Its science is backed by 500 Purina scientists, including nutritionists, veterinarians and behaviorists globally who continuously rethink what nutrition can do.

“King eats Purina Pro Plan Focus Sensitive Skin and Stomach Salmon and Rice formula because it’s the only food that keeps his skin and coat healthy while giving him the energy to perform like the champion he was tonight,” said Rangel.
