Last weekend saw the 125th anniversary of Crufts at the NEC Birmingham. Crufts is one of the largest dog events in the world, celebrating dogs of all breeds.
Almost 22,000 pedigree dogs from around the world competed at the Birmingham NEC over four days for just seven places in the Crufts 2016 Best in Show final.
The show ended on Sunday night with the Best in Show winner announced as Devon (Ch Burneze Geordie Girl), a West Highland white Terrier. Reserve Best in Show was awarded to Hazel (CH Nothing Compares To You At Crosscop JW) a Whippet.
The other five finalists were, Jen the German Spitz Klein, Eric the Pekingese, Zony the Border Collie, James the Gordon Setter and Hector the Bouvier Des Flandres.
As well as the 'Best in Show' title, there are many other competitions that take place at the show, from Agility and Flyball to Eukanuba Friends for Life and Scruffts. Scruffts is the nation’s favourite crossbreed competition. Throughout the year, heats of the popular Scruffts contest, which is supported by pet food makers James Wellbeloved, take place at events around the country in search of crossbreeds with that extra special something.
More than 1,800 dogs took part in the Scruffts heats this year, raising £1,900 for both the Kennel Club Charitable Trust and each event’s chosen charity.
