Staffies top the chart in ‘Britain’s Favourite Dogs’

Our nation of dog lovers has spoken! Last night, the countdown of 2019’s Britain’s Favourite Dogs saw the softy Staffordshire Bull Terrier claim victory over last year’s winner, the Labrador.

Presenters Sara Cox and Ben Fogle counted down the top 100, with the final 10 up for a live public vote to finally crown this year’s canine champion.

With around 217 breeds to choose from, it was always going to be ruff decision for the 10,000 polled to choose their top pup. With a host of celebrities showing off their four-legged friends alongside other funny and heart-warming tales of bravery, talent and agility, the 2.5 hour epic showcased the best loved breeds.
