This year is the 120th anniversary of dfs Crufts, and the winner will join a long line of champions that have taken the Best in Show title in that time.

Henry, aged 2 who is owned by Victor Malzoni from Brazil and handled by Richard Allen will be returning to the Main Arena at dfs Crufts tomorrow evening for the highly anticipated dfs Crufts 2011 final, which will be televised live on More4.

Richard said: “I’m ecstatic, absolutely speechless. I’ve had such a fantastic year. I am going to go home for a nice dinner and bit of rest for a big day tomorrow“.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Communications Director, said: “Reaching Best in Show at dfs Crufts is a fabulous achievement for any dog, and we wish Henry all the very best for the final. I’m sure that all of Bristol will be tuning in to More4 and rooting for them to win tomorrow evening.”
