German shepherd crowned winner at Westminster dog show

Feb. 15, 2017: The dog's name is Rumor.

NEW YORK -- Rumor has it.

Rumor, the German shepherd, was crowned America's top dog last night.

Rumor is just the second German shepherd champion at the event that began in 1877.

She came close last year and came out of retirement to win best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club.

She'd been at home in Wisconsin for months, a house pet headed toward having puppies.

Handler and co-owner Kent Boyles says it's "unbelievable."
