A BALLASALLA woman and her boxer proved every dog does have its day after walking away with a top prize at Crufts.
Co-owner Gemma Stockton, aged 26, and Asbo (show name Roamaro Read All About It with Kiztok) claimed the prestigious Best of Breed award in the working group on Sunday.
More than 25,000 dogs took part in the dog show, presented by the Kennel Club, which took place at the NEC in Birmingham last weekend.
Miss Stockton was left beaming with pride at her and Asbo’s performance at the world-famous show.
‘I have been coming to Crufts for the last 10 years and have qualified for the last five,’ she said.
‘It’s amazing to get Best of Breed.’
She said that she had been keen to keep the success going after Asbo’s co-owner took the reserve dog ticket with another boxer, Emjaycee Country Yokel at Kiztok.
Miss Stockton added: ‘I love coming to Crufts, it’s the biggest dog show in the world.’
