Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club, said: “The Kennel Club’s deepest sympathies go to Jagger’s owners, who have received confirmation that Jagger tragically died from the ingestion of poisoned material, and we ask that their privacy is respected as they grieve for their beloved pet.
Miracle, a rescue dog who was to be cruelly slaughtered for meat but who is now changing the life of a local six year old boy with cerebral palsy, was announced as the winner of the Eukanuba Friends for Life 2015 competition.
Miracle and six year old son, Kyle, were voted the most deserving winners out of four shortlisted finalists by the British public.
