Dottie the Great Dane won the Animal Foundation’s 16th annual “Best in Show” on April 28 at the Thomas & Mack Center. Animal lovers saw 50 shelter dogs compete in a variety of categories — including small, medium, large, variety pack, puppies and special needs — before Dottie ran away with the title. The fundraising and adoption event opened with a VIP brunch and entertainment by Piff the Magic Dragon and his chihuahua, Mr. Piffles. Christian W. Kolberg led the live auction and raffle for the 600 VIP guests. About $400,000 was raised to support the foundation’s animal lifesaving programs.
