Westminster Winner, Rumor, Gives Birth to Eight Puppies!

October 7, 2017

Westminster Kennel Club is pleased to announce the birth of eight puppies to 2017 big show winner Rumor, the German Shepherd.

Channel 3000 in Madison, Wisconsin has video of the puppies, but wouldn’t let me share it. You can view it on their site.

Owner/Handler Kent Boyles says Rumor is being a great mother to her four baby girls and four baby boys, born in August. Rumor was bred to two dogs, so DNA testing will be required to determine the paternal side of each puppy’s bloodline.

No decision yet on who will raise the pups once they leave Boyles’ Kenlynn German Sheperds kennel, or what their show potential may be.

Congrats to all involved!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
