A rescue-dog was Best in Show at Chiswick House Dog Show .
Jack, a three-year old border collie, owned by Yulia Titovets, scooped the award as hundreds of dog-lovers showed off their pets at the cricket pitch in Chiswick House.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes were entered into the fifteen classes , including Best Puppy, Handsomest Dog and Prettiest Bitch. It was the seventh successful show run by Chiswick House Organised Walkers (CHOW), to raise funds for dog-related projects.

Actress Maureen Lipman, who opened the show , showed off her basenji, Diva, and said she realised what a source of joy and companionship a dog could be after the death of her husband.

Last year nearly 1500 people attended the dog show, and the organisers say this year's event was equally succesful. The show also launched an appeal aimed at raising funds to support the Medical Detection Dogs Charity . The organisers want to encourage 5,000 dog-owners throughout the country to donate £20 each to train ten dogs to be canine detectors or medical alert dogs.
