Scruffts 2016 Finalists

This year’s Scruffts competition attracted over 1,400 crossbreeds and their owners, but just six have made it all the way, winning a place in the final at Crufts 2017 for the Scruffts Family Crossbreed Dog of the Year final next March.

Having qualified at various heats around the country, semi-finalists from each category headed to London’s biggest dog event, Eukanuba Discover Dogs at ExCeL London over the weekend of October 22nd and 23rd. The gorgeous dogs and passionate owners came together to compete for a place at the world’s greatest dog show, and after much deliberation from the judge the 6 finalists were chosen.

With thanks to Scruffts sponsors James Wellbeloved!
