A volunteer Herts police dog has won the Best Boy in the Norfolk Terrier Post Graduate Dog Class at Crufts.

Hugo is part of the force's RAPPAW scheme, which sees trained dog owners and their pooches support vulnerable victims and witnesses, as well as provide wellbeing support to officers and staff within the force.

The two-year-old, whose competition name is Watercroft Mark One, competed in the prestigious dog show on Saturday and was victorious in his class.

"Since starting his RAPPAW work 14 months ago, Hugo has been a hit with everyone he meets," said RAPPAW volunteer PC Jo Healey, who owns Hugo with retired police officer Dee Rayner.

"This was his first time competing at Crufts so we’re so proud to walk away with the Best Boy title, which is so fitting for him.

"After the formalities of the competition were over, he was straight back to enjoying cuddles with everyone he met at the show before heading home for a well-earned rest."
