Proud owners and their pampered pooches took home top titles after competing at the world’s greatest dog show.

While Joanna Szewczyk, of Chesterfield, claimed the Best of Breed award with Amy, a 20-month-old bull terrier.

Digger and Penny both picked up firsts in the Good Citizen category and Penny also claimed a first in the Junior section.

Delighted Angela, 52, of Rother Close, who runs a dog training business with her husband Steve, said: “It was a shock. It’s an honour to qualify to Crufts so to win three awards I was just ‘wow’ I can’t believe it.”

The celebration of pedigree chums took place at the NEC in Birmingham and saw more than 21,500 dogs compete.

Miss Szewczyk, 32, of Sycamore Road, was left beaming with pride at Amy’s performance.

She said: “I’m overwhelmed, it’s unbelievable and I didn’t expect it at all. I really thought we didn’t have a chance to win, maybe to get close but to win best of breed is just beautiful.”

The Derbyshire Times’s own version of Crufts - Dufts - showcases some of our readers adorable mutts.

They might not be prize-winning but are still top dogs to their owners.
