Ms. Evalyn Gregory
MS. EVALYN GREGORY of Louisville, Kentucky is a second-generation dog person that followed in her father's footsteps first as a professional dog handler and then becoming a judge. She debuted as a six-year-old handler of Brussels Griffons and Boxers, leading to junior showmanship and all-breed handling success. Ms. Gregory was awarded her first of many Bests in Show at age 10. At Westminster, she handled the 1996 Toy Group second-place winner, a Brussels Griffon, and owned the 2009 Toy Group winner, Lincoln, a Brussels Griffon that she co-owned with her mother. Lincoln remains the all-time top-winning smooth-coated Brussels Griffon. She judges the Toy and Non-Sporting groups, multiple Sporting, Hound, Working, and Terrier breeds, Best in Show, and Junior Showmanship. This is her third judging assignment at Westminster.
