WATCH: Kratu the rescue dog stole the show with hilarious run at Crufts' agility course

He stole our hearts...and a pole from the agility course, too.

Kratu the rescue dog returned to Crufts, the annual dog show held in Birmingham, this week for his final run at the agility course before his retirement.

And, much like he's done with his now-viral performances from the last few years,  things didn't quite go to plan - although, he looked like he was having the best time.ever.

Kratu is a Carpathian-Mioritic mix, who was rescued by his handler Tessa when he was a puppy.

For his final Crufts appearance, the playful dog played peek-a-boo in the tunnels - and seemed to be pretty happy to make up his own routine for his farewell performance.

He then pulled off a mini-heist, grabbing a piece of one of the agility course's hurdles and running off with it.

“That’s definitely against the rules,” one of the announcers said with a chuckle, while the other added that he had never seen a dog take a part of an obstacle before, noting that Kratu was a "rascal".

But a very, very loveable rascal, obviously.
