Westminster Dog Show results 2013: Sporting, Working and Terrier group winners named

David Banks

Before Best In Show, winners of the Sporting, Working and Terrier groups were named on Tuesday night at the Westminster Dog Show.

Winners of the last three groups at the 2013 Westminster Dog Show were crowned on Tuesday night in Madison Square Garden, setting the stage for the eventual Best In Show announcement.

First up was the Sporting Group, won by Oakley, the German Wirehaired Pointer. The all-weather, any-terrian hunting dog beat out a Black Cocker Spaniel and English Springer Spaniel, who finished second and third, respectively.

German Wirehaired Pointers are such good helpers on the hunt, according to Westminster's web site, thanks to a tough coat of fur and willingness to search through land or sea for their target.

In the Working Group, Matisse, the Portuguese Water Dog took top honors back to his doghouse, finishing ahead of the second-place Doberman Pincsher, who was the group's favorite going into the event, and the Boxer, who finished in third.

Lastly, the Smooth Fox Terrier claimed victory in the Terrier Group, winning over the Wire Fox Terrier, who finished in second, and the third-place Border Terrier.
