A PASSIONATE bulldog breeder has been celebrating after his star pup took home a prize for best juvenile at Crufts.
John Goodwin (67), of St Lawrence Avenue, Bolsover, saw 17-month old bulldog Lady Scarlet rise to the top at the world-famous show in Birmingham.
He said: “It was my second time at Crufts.
Last year I entered with another dog and I came fifth in a different category.
“I was really pleased this year to enter with Lady Scarlet and win because we were up against some other really top dogs.”
John, who is retired, keeps five bulldogs at his home, which he breeds for a hobby.
“I have been treating them all since we got back, especially Lady Scarlet,” he added.
