An Exmouth woman and her dog, Remo, are celebrating after walking away with a top prize at Crufts.

Remo, a four-year-old Cirneco dell’Etna, was one of more than 25,000 dogs at Birmingham’s NEC last weekend, and claimed a prestigious Best of Breed award.

Owner Michelle Farleigh, 57, of Featherbed Lane, was left beaming with pride after Remo fought off competition from a number of other dogs to scoop the coveted prize in the Any Variety Important Registered Hound category – being held for the first time this year.

She said: “This was the first ever time a category has been run for import dogs, so to win is just fantastic.”

“Remo is such a placid and lovely dog, he loves running on the beach in Exmouth and he loves chasing rabbits! I’m so proud of him and he loved being out in the arena.”
