Chewbacca look-alike wins dog show

  • 0

(RNN) - The National Dog Show champion won on his cuteness and form, but Newton is gaining internet fame for his resemblance to a certain cranky wookie.

The 3-year-old Brussels Griffon beat out six other challengers for Best in Show: an American Staffordshire terrier, a French bulldog, an Old English sheepdog, an English springer spaniel, a whippet and a Portuguese water dog, which placed second.

Newton's status as a lookalike for Star Wars' Chewbacca has people still talking about him on social media.
