Scruffts: The Nation's Favourite Crossbreed Competition

Is your dog the next Family Crossbreed Dog of the Year?

Scruffts, sponsored by James Wellbeloved, is the nation’s favourite crossbreed competition and is a great way to enjoy time with your dog and family. A crossbreed is a dog of mixed blood, whose parents are of two different breeds, or a mixture of several breeds. Scruffts was launched back in 2000 at Discover Dogs and is now celebrated with a grand final at Crufts.

Scruffts 2015 Winner

Gracie, a crossbreed dog from Alvechurch, Worcestershire, has been named Scruffts Family Crossbreed of the Year at the world’s greatest dog show, Crufts. Gracie, owned by Alison Hitchins, was found on the streets, heavily pregnant and, within a week, gave birth to six puppies. The puppies were easily rehomed but no one seemed to want to adopt her.

Gracie has now been living with owner Alison for nine years and is a very happy and healthy dog. She takes part in agility, heelwork to music, and is also a Pets As Therapy dog and visits a local hospice every month. Gracie’s owner, Alison Hitchins said: “I’m delighted to have won Scruffts as it recognises the value of crossbreed dogs and I am particularly pleased that it was the Golden Oldie category as this highlights the importance of older dogs.”
