Who Won 'Best in Show' at the Purina National Dog Show 2016?

The winner of the 2016 National Dog Show presented by Purina has been announced!

The event happens every year on Thanksgiving Day and is aired on NBC following the Macy’s Parade.

The dog that won “Best in Show” at the event this year was the Greyhound!

Here is how a dog can win the Best in Show prize: “A dog must first be judged the best of many dog shows of its same breed competing in the show. Some breeds have more than 100 dogs entered. The winner of the breed moves on to the group judging.”

There are seven groups of dogs that the more than 190 breeds are split into and then the final seven dogs compete against each other. Watch the winning moment below!
