Snoring pitbull wins best in rescue on THE AMERICAN RESCUE DOG SHOW

A snoring pitbull won best in rescue as part of a televised dog show on the ABC. The adorable dog named Capone beat off stiff competition from 6 other rescue pups. He won $100,000 for the charity that rescued him, San Diego Humane Society.

Capone once faced a bleak existence, living on the streets, until he was rescued and adopted by his adopter, Elisha. According to Petco Love, the non-profit that sponsored the event, it was Capone’s outgoing and friendly personality that helped him win over the celebrity judges: Paula Abdul, Leslie Jordan, and Yvette Nicole Brown. Capone’s hobbies include sunbathing and yodeling, according to his bio for the show!

Dog shows are usually only for purebred animals, but this show’s aim is to illustrate that rescue dogs can also be best in show. Petco Love gave over of $200,000 grants for the event. This included $10,000 to each rescue dog’s charity for the categories: Best in Belly Rubs, Best Couch Potato, Best Ears, Best Fetching, Best Talking, and Best Underbite.
