Video of Clifton dog chosen for National Dog Show

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT)-- A Clifton dog is about to be world famous after he caught the eye of popular dog food execs.

The video is going to show Nationally during the Westminster Dog Show on Thanksgiving day.

Purina was looking for photos and videos of pets when one dog lover thought to send a video of her dog Zeus playing in the leaves with family earlier this Fall.

Zeus is an English Lab--those dogs typically weigh around 70 pounds.

The family says they never expected to win.

"He's a great companion, we go to the Riverbend Park, probably 3 to 4 times a week. He's a water dog galore, he swims in the river, we can't keep him out of it. He goes fishing with us, he goes hiking with us,” says Owner of Zeus Rhonda Phillips.

Purina told the family they were chosen because of the fun family element to the video.
