To find out that a dog I had put through had won the Rescue/Re-homed Dog of the Year was truly heart-warming. Like all the other breed rescue charities and dog homes BTW have many dogs coming through welfare. This is a great event to bring the rescue message home. Photographer Annie Dent's lovely gallery of the show final also helps to highlight dog rescue. Well done to all involved.
