Updated 7:10 p.m. Feb. 11, 2020 - Tuesday morning, Oroville teen Madisson Jensen and her mastiff Page won an award at the prestigious Westminster Dog Show in Manhattan, New York.

Page was recognized as the best female mastiff in the lineup, winning her the designation of Grand Champion Select Bitch.

Madisson Jensen and her pup Page just finished showing at the Westminster Dog Show and are taking home the Grand Champion Select Bitch, meaning she was picked as the best female Mastiff in the lineup.

"[I was] in shock," said Madisson via FaceTime. "I couldn't believe it when the judge pulled me out of line. Like 'oh my God' I can't believe I actually placed and there were so many professionals that I was going up against. I was like 'oh my gosh if we place, I'll be so surprised' and then we were picked out of line. It was a lot of fun. It was really cool."

Madisson was the only owner-handler and junior to compete making her the youngest competitor at 16-years-old.

OROVILLE, Calif. - The Westminster Dog Show is very difficult to qualify for but a teenager from Oroville managed to do it.

Madisson Jensen has had a love for dogs since she was three-years-old. She’s cared for them, trained them, and now competes alongside one at dog shows.

Her dog, Page is an English Mastiff.

“It’s a lot of fun. But she is definitely a hand full,” Jensen said.

Page is weighing in at nearly 200 pounds.

“She knows her job once we get there,” Jensen said. “With the bond we have it helps 100%, but having a big dog is a little bit more complicated, but she makes it fun.”

Madisson has been handling Page since she was just 12 weeks old.

“There’s something just special about her and she’s just a goofball,” Jensen said. “She’s a clown everywhere she goes, everyone loves her, and she’s a fan favorite. But I think the bond is really what sets us apart.”

That bond won Page a championship title at an Oregon show this past year. Soon, she will be living out her dream with her forever friend at the Westminster Dog Show in New York.

“To be honest, I never thought I would ever be there,” Jensen said. “Just to watch the show is something huge. It’s something I wanted to do since I was a little kid, but to actually compete there is even bigger, especially with my own dog.”

Madisson’s family, friends, and the community rallied behind the two and donated over $7,000 to get to New York.

"I've worked really hard and I’ve had a lot of supporters this whole way,” Jensen said. “Even people I don't know have supported my dog and I and it’s amazing what the community has done for us.”

The duo will compete in the Best of Breed Competition.

“I’m really excited, but once I get to the show I’m going to be so nervous, but I have my best friend by my side,” Jensen said.

Madisson and Page will compete at the Westminster Dog Show on Feb. 11.
