This precious fluff ball was just named best in show at Crufts

A deserving winner.

All puppers are beautiful but when it comes to the most hotly-contested dog show in the world, there could only be one winner.

A papillon named Dylan has been named Best in Show at Crufts 2019.

Dylan beat six other finalists to take home the big prize on the final day of the event yesterday, having already won the toy dog category.

He had come from Belgium with his owner and handler, Kathleen Roosens.

"I was spoilt for choice but my eyes were drawn to this beautiful dog that has everything you look for in the breed, plus personality," judge Dan Ericsson said.

The papillon breed takes it names from the french word for 'butterfly', thanks to its pointy, fluffy ears.

This type of dog is known for its intelligence, as well as its obedience and agility, according to the Evening Standard.

Thousands of dogs travelled from all over the world with their owners to compete in the prestigious four-day competition, held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

 

Another good boy who was honoured at Crufts this year was retired police dog Finn.

He and his owner PC Dave Wardell were given the Kennel Club Friends for Life award.

Finn was left fighting for his life in 2016 when he was stabbed a number of times as he protected a police officer during an attack.
