It's the first time in 20 years a German shepherd has taken the top prize at the dog show, and following the big win, Rumor got a nice juicy steak to nosh on as a prize.
The canine was named after the Adele tune, "Rumor Has It," from her blockbuster album, 21.

On the morning after the big win, Rumor took a trip to the Empire State Building, where he posed for pictures.
Rumor then went to the famous Sardis for lunch.
Rumor's handler and co-owner Kent Boyles told Inside Edition: "She is a little tired right now staying up at the party. She kept looking up at us owners saying, ‘when are we going home?’"
Boyles confirmed that the big victory will be Rumor's final dog show appearance and she wil go into retirement.
