HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, NY — A white, female Maltese from Hastings-on-Hudson took home the top prize in the toy group at Tuesday’s Westminster Kennel Club dog show.
GCHB CH Ta-Jon’s Walk of Fame, as the pooch is officially known, will be competing for Best in Show Wednesday at the 146th annual dog show which is being held at Tarrytown’s Lyndhurst Estate.
The 3-year-old is known as Hollywood and was handled by Tim Lehman. She is owned by Dragica Hunter and Tammy Simon. Hollywood was bred by Diana Egnor and Simon.
There were 405 other dogs competing in the toy group with the long-haired Maltese. The category was judged by Rosalind Kramer.
Westminster’s Best in Show competition will be shown live at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday on FS1.
Hollywood’s owners did not immediately reply when asked for a comment by Patch.
