A two-year-old poodle named Ricky has taken the prestigious Crufts Best in Show trophy.

Ricky, and his handler, Jason Lynn were awarded the prestigious trophy in front of thousands at the NEC Arena in Birmingham and millions more watching live on Channel 4 and online around the world.

Just seven dogs competed for the Best in Show title at Crufts 2014 from over 21,000 who took part over the course of the four day event.

Best in Show judge, Jack Bispham faced a difficult decision choosing between the seven different breeds: the Standard Poodle, Rottweiler, Samoyed, Irish Wolfhound, Wire Fox Terrier, Pomeranian, and American Cocker Spaniel.

Ricky’s handler, Jason Lynn said of his win: “It’s unbelievable, a very surreal moment. I’ve been involved in dogs my whole life and the thought of being on the winning podium at Crufts is a dream come true.”
