A caring canine who supports victims and witnesses of criminal offense for Herts Constabulary is now a Crufts champ.
Hugo is an animal volunteer for the force’s RAPPAW group, which released in 2016.
As part of the plan, dogs like Hugo and their owners supply aftercare and assistance to susceptible witnesses and victims of criminal offense, consisting of kids and the elderly, to help them feel more at ease and bring back trust and self-confidence.
The two-year-old, whose competitors name is Watercroft Mark One, completed in the prominent dog program on Saturday (March 11), declaring Best Boy in the Norfolk Terrier Post Graduate Dog Class.
RAPPAW volunteer PC Jo Healey, who owns Hugo with retired law enforcement officers Dee Rayner, said: “Since beginning his RAPPAW work 14 months earlier, Hugo has actually been a struck with everybody he satisfies. This was his very first time contending at Crufts so we’re so happy to win the Best Boy title, which is so fitting for him.
“After the rules of the competitors were over, he was directly back to taking pleasure in cuddles with everybody he satisfied at the program prior to heading home for a well-earned rest.”
