Suts, owned by Roz Carr, won the title of Junior Dog and Best Puppy in Breed last week in Birmingham. It was the 10-month-old Turkish Kangal’s first time in the competition.
Roz, of North Road, said: “It feels brilliant to have won and we both had a great day.
“Whilst Suts looks like a big dog he is still a playful puppy who wants to meet everyone.
“He couldn’t understand why he had to stand still when the judges were looking at him, but he did such a good job and I’m proud of him.”
Roz and her son Stephen, made the trip to the NEC for the world’s biggest dog show.
Suts – or Mesut Birinci Panter Kangal DK Bubu of Karabiber as he is more formally known – was the first winner after the breed returned to its original name.
There have been disputes within the Kennel Club as to what to call the national dog of Turkey.
Its breed was changed to the Anatolian Shepherd but after much campaigning the name Turkish Kangal was reinstated.
In July Crufts decided to allow both names to compete at the show.
Roz has been showing dogs at Crufts since 1976 and was a judge back in 2006.
She said she would show Suts at Blackpool later in the year but will let him enjoy being a puppy until next year’s Crufts.
