AP reports: DES MOINES, Iowa  — Tyson, a beloved English bulldog, doesn't bite ears like his namesake, boxer Mike Tyson. But he does share a title: champion. The two-year-old pup with a fetching face and a winning personality was crowned the winner of this year's "Beautiful Bulldog" pageant Monday in Des Moines, Iowa.

"He's kind of compact. He's got the one big roll and the spot over his eye," said owner Tyler Motter, of Urbandale, Iowa. "His personality is amazing."
