(CNN)Claire the Scottish Deerhound beat out hundreds of canines on Thursday to take home the top prize at the National Dog Show.

Claire was named Best in Show at the event, which this year was scaled down slightly -- with due to Covid-19.

The show featured just 600 dogs rather than the usual 2,000 -- but Claire's victory is no less significant.

"She saw a picture of the dog doing exactly what it was bred to do," said David Frei, a commentator for NBC, when asked what the judges saw in Claire.

Claire came out of the Hound group, defeating six other dogs who came out at the top of their respective groups.

The National Dog Show, hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, was held over two days on November 14 and 15.

This year's show also introduced three new dog breeds: the Barbet, the Belgian Laekenois and the Dogo Argentino, according to NBC.
