A Catterick Garrison woman and her 11-year-old Miniature Pinscher Wilson have returned from Crufts 2017 with a best of breed award.

One of 22,000 dogs appearing at Birmingham’s NEC for the world’s largest dog show, Wilson made sure to take a starring role alongside owner Julie Harrison.

And after enjoying their own moment in the spotlight, Julie, a retired dog groomer, could not be more delighted with Wilson’s performance.

“It’s a great feeling and we have worked very hard for it,” said the 64-year-old, of Cleveland Road.

“I’m so proud of him.

“The best thing about Crufts is the atmosphere, and it’s the best place to come to see all the different breeds, especially if you want more information on a particular type of dog.

“Crufts is a unique spectacle of people and animals and a great place to go for people to do their homework on dogs.”
