The 128th edition of Crufts saw more than 200 breeds and approximately 3,600 dogs from oversea take the trip to Birmingham last week. The four-day event was held at Birmingham’s National Exhibitions Centre (NEC). The popular dog show saw champion dogs from around the world awe audiences with their aerial skills, exquisite breeding and coiffed coats. But who won Crufts' largest competition Best in Show this year?
What dog won Crufts last night?
A papillon named Dylan has been crowned Best in Show at the 2019 Crufts dog show.
The canine beat six other finalists and was also named winner of the Toy Group earlier in the four-day dog show.
Dylan is owned by Kathleen Roosens.
Judge Dan Ericsson said: "I was spoilt for choice but my eyes were drawn to this beautiful dog that has everything you look for in the breed, plus personality."

Be Diligent about Vet Visits. “Don’t wait for the signs,” Dr. Becker stresses. Focus on “prevention first.” Pets age fast, and when it comes to illness they are programmed to mask weakness, “they’re naturally secretive.” One to two visits a year is ideal, but if you suspect a problem, don’t hesitate, and don’t self-diagnose. “In the last two years I’ve seen four or five cases where people went to the internet for help, and by the time they get to the vet it’s too late,” says Dr. Becker.
Charleen – Samoyed (Pasotral)
Mike – Basset Griffon Vendeen (Petit)
Eva – Scottish Terrier (Terrier)
Dylan - Papillon (Toy)

Dylan will receive a replica of the solid silver Keddall Memorial Trophy, as well as a cash prize of £100.
Last year’s Best in Show winner was Tease the Whippet from Edinburgh.
The first show took place in 1891 and was called Cruft’s Greatest Dog Show.
This saw 2,000 dogs of all breeds participate, but now this has grown to more than 27,000 dogs attending in 2019.
