Watch for 'Vince' at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

A show dog owned by a Bethlehem woman will compete at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Monday.

You can call him "Vince" for short.

His full name is Spring Valley's Great Vincero and he is a Bethlehem-owned Rhodesian Ridgeback that will be competing in the 2013 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this week.

He was a finalist in his breed at Westminster last year.

Judging for Vince's breed (in the Hound group) will take place during the day Monday.

Born in June 2010, Vince's awards include:

  • AKC Grand Championship: October 1, 2011
    2011 RRCUS National Specialty in Rapid City, South Dakota:
    Vince was included in the Best of Breed Top 12
  • AKC Championship: February 5, 2011

Vince is owned by Heather Trapasso.

There will be live television coverage of the show:

  • Monday, February 11, 8-11 p.m. ET, Live on CNBC
  • Tuesday, February 12, 8-11 p.m ET, Live on USA Network
