Celebrating man's best friend
Friends For Life is an inspiring celebration of man's best friend. A dog that helped save the lives of two soldiers in Afghanistan and survived capture by the Taliban, a police dog that has helped make 433 arrests, and a three legged stray that has turned the life of a seven year old boy around, just a month after being left for dead on a railway line, compete in a public vote for the prestigious Friends for Life final at Crufts 2013.
The Kennel Club’s Friends for Life competition, which has been running since 2006, celebrates heart-warming stories of friendship in adversity, where dogs have truly earned the title of man’s best friend, through bravery, support or companionship.
The five dogs in the 2013 competition were selected for their outstanding bravery and devotion to their owners. The dog that the public votes as having the most truly deserving tale will be presented with the trophy during a special ceremony in the main arena at the Birmingham NEC, on the final night of Crufts (Sunday 9th March) which will be televised live by Channel 4.
