A Lhasa Apso called Elizabeth on Sunday won the Best in Show award at Britain’s Crufts festival, the world’s largest annual dog show.
Elizabeth, from Coventry, central England, earlier won the Best Utility category before being crowned champion ahead of 21,000 other dogs at the NEC arena in Birmingham, central England.
“I can’t believe it,” said Margaret Anderson, the winning breeder.
“I’m sure somebody’s going to pinch me in a minute and I’ll wake up and it’ll all be a dream,” she added. “It hasn’t sunk in at all. I’ll go home and probably burst out crying.”
Anderson described the winning dog as “very easy going and laid back”.
The show, which is organised by The Kennel Club, celebrates its 121st anniversary this year.
