Cutest in Show

Published

Sh Ch Vbos The Kentuckian, aka Jet, has been crowned Best In Show at the 120th Crufts dog show in Birmingham. Jet was up against some of the most glamorous dogs in the nation, including Theo, a Standard Poodle with a unicorn horn who won first place in the Utility group.

From the fluffy Bishon Frises in the Toy group, to the strapping Boxers of the Working breeds, the Crufts judges had the difficult task of choosing winners from the 21,000 dogs that entered. And. as we’re quite partial to cuddly canines, we've turned judges ourselves to select the cutest, aww-inducing dogs from Crufts 2011 show.
