Charlie, a rescued dog and an American foxhound, took top honors at the annual Gadsby’s Tavern Dog competition Saturday afternoon, April 27, in Market Square. Charlie came with Ken Landon and wooed the judges with his demeanor and posture. Coming in second was Oliver, also a rescue dog. Oliver is loved and cared for by Randy Plante. Third place went to Janet Schmidt’s dog Rookie. Runners up were Athena, Barkley and Jax.

Judges for the event included Margaret Morgan, Patty Mazzuchelli, Julie Greenwood and Shooter (the 2012 Tavern Dog) and Erik Koster.
