NEW YORK, New York (KOIN 6) — One Oregon dog is hitting the big time!

Mick, an Alaskan Malamute from Scappose, will strut his stuff Tuesday at the Westminster Dog Show in New York.

Mick’s owner, Thea Robinson, told KOIN 6 News it has taken a lot to get him ready for the show.

“It’s not only conditioning them physically, but mentally and making sure they’re properly fed and properly conditioned,” Robinson said.

Mick won best in breed Monday and will compete in the working group competition Wednesday evening. If he wins, he’ll go on to compete in best in show.

KOIN 6 News will let you know how he does.
