Rudy the bulldog didn't score high marks at the Westminster Kennel Club's agility contest in New York's Piers 94 this weekend, but he definitely stole the show. Verb the border collie took home the top honors for the purebred dog race at the 143rd Westminster dog show, but it's the underdog that won spectators' hearts.

Bulldogs aren't known for their nimbleness, so they probably aren't suited for a speed competition where dogs plow through a rigorous obstacle course involving hurdles, a seesaw and U-shaped tubes. However, Rudy is not your average bulldog.

He veered off course for a hot second, but found his way back on course like a pro and never gave up.


Scoring is determined by how many faults a dog team with the handler incurs, and the faults are not limited to knocking over obstacle cones or other set pieces, alone. They can be penalized for time faults, which are the seconds run over the standard course time, depending on other factors like the complexities of the course level.

According to USA Today, Rudy's determination earned him an impressive finish at 46.63 seconds, 51.63 after the fault.

According to bulldog enthusiasts, the squishy-faced hefty dogs aren't known for their gracefulness, let alone their obedience.

You gotta give Rudy major props. Look at him plow through.






This is the sedentary behavior most bulldog owners are familiar with.




Other bulldogs agreed with this user. You can almost hear them all collectively say, "Same."




At the end of the day, Rudy just wins at love.
