Spencer added that they have seven including Labradors, a Collie, a Whippet, Jack Russell Terriers and a BeagleJack Russell mix.

“We have very high hopes for Daisy and so proud that she is off to Crufts again,” the proud owner said. “If the previous owners that didn’t want her could see her now, I think they’d be flabbergasted.

“She has a wonderful nature and is a very talented dog and has achieved fantastic results so far, and hopefully will continue.”
