Mixed-Breed Rescued Dog Wins Online Show

From -- A dachshund-cocker mix named Tillie that was rescued by a no-kill shelter last year in California won best of show Monday in an online competition in which 45,000 people voted.

Using the Internet allowed the show to reach the masses, while a new category was created to recognize dogs that are not included in traditional dog shows.

Tillie seemed unimpressed, but her owner and Purina's award presenter were excited on the stage of Purina's headquarters here. Tillie and Julie George of the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles arrived by limousine and a red-carpet walkway.

"This is a classic Cinderella story," said the tuxedoed Ernie Planck, as he draped a medal and ribbon around Tillie's tiny neck. "She's a mixed-breed rescue dog selected from 15,000 entries. She is America's dog."
