LULU the incredible rescued dog had a brilliant time at Crufts.
The six-year-old appeared in The News after making it into the agility finals of the world’s biggest dog competition last week, despite a shaky start in life.
She was given up to the Blue Cross animal charity and adopted by Anne Arbon, from Denmead, who is an expert dog trainer.
Jo Toscano, a spokeswoman for Blue Cross, has been keeping in contact with Mrs Arbon to check on Lulu’s progress.
She said: ‘Sadly, Lulu wasn’t placed, but had a great time and who knows what might happen next year.’ On the day Lulu made 16 faults – which is not too bad for a Crufts novice.
Mrs Arbon said: ‘I’m so glad we got Lulu from the Blue Cross. She is a wonderful dog and I wish more people would consider getting a rescue dog.’
The collie was given up by her original owners because she could not kerb natural instincts and began herding the children – as she would have done on a farm.
