Scruffts 2016 Winner: Biscuit and Joshua King

scruffts winner at Crufts 2017

Biscuit, a German Shepherd Dog/Border Collie cross owned by Joshua King from Prestatyn, Denbighshire, has won this year’s Scruffts Family Crossbreed of the Year title!

Joshua, who is a 14 year-old Young Kennel Club (YKC) member, wanted his own dog from a very young age. Since owning Biscuit, the young crossbreed has achieved his bronze, silver and gold Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme awards and regularly competes in YKC competitions with Joshua.

Joshua is currently training to become a dog trainer at his local club, the Good Companion Dog Training Club, in Prestatyn. He helps run classes once a week with other trainers, assisting with the training of local dogs.

Thrilled Joshua said: “I was not expecting to win and I’m extremely delighted about it. Competitions like Scruffts give dogs like Biscuit a chance as there’s no other big competitions available for crossbreeds. This shines a light on crossbreeds which is great because they’re brilliant.”
