Reading Time: 2 minutes

“The American Rescue Dog Show,” which aired recently (May 25) on ABC, is a competition for rescue dogs showcasing their personalities and unique nature.

Winning dogs earn donations to the animal welfare organizations that offered the pets a chance at love and a home of their own.

This year’s winner, a pitbull dog named Capone, scored the championship title “Best in Rescue” for doing what he does best — snoring.

Capone, representing San Diego Humane Society, won the title and the $100,000 grant for the organization after beating out six other canine contenders.

Capone’s outgoing and friendly personality, in addition to his signature snore, won over the celebrity judges, which included Paula Abdul, Leslie Jordan and Yvette Nicole Brown.

Once living a life on the streets, Capone now enjoys napping in the sun, meeting new people, and yodeling, according to his official show bio.


In addition to the Snoring competition, six other organizations were awarded $10,000 grants as a result of canine contenders in the categories of:

  • Best in Belly Rubs,
  • Couch Potato,
  • Ears,
  • Fetching,
  • Talking,
  • Underbite.

Petco Love, a national non-profit organization dedicated to changing lives, supports the show’s mission with over $200,000 in grants to animal welfare organizations represented in the show. The grants, all from Petco Love, will be used to help other dogs in need at organizations throughout the country.

You can watch The American Rescue Dog Show on demand and on Hulu.
