The animal is one of about 800 still in existence worldwide and was born in the district.
The breed is currently classified as at risk by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
She is cared for by the council’s ranger team and will spend her life grazing nature reserves in Wyre Forest.
Conservative councillor Ian Hardiman, cabinet member for community wellbeing, said: “Congratulations to Sue and Olivia for winning the competition.
“I thought Domino was a fantastic name for the beautiful black and white cow. We thought the competition was a good idea after the rangers informed us of just how rare the cow was.”
