Pal Scruffts Heats 2001

PAL Scruffts, the Family Dog of the Year competition, was launched at Discover Dogs last year and regional heats are now due to take place all over the country throughout 2001. PAL Scruffts is in association with The Kennel Club who co-ordinate the event to help promote this wonderful celebration of man's best friend, where all proceeds will be donated to the NCDL.

The first two heats will be taking place on the 3rd June, when Canine Concern Scotland Trust will be welcoming entrants to Queens Park, Glasgow from 11.00am. In Liverpool, NCDL Merseyside will be staging its heat, where proceedings will commence at 12.00.

If you have a family cross - breed dog of any shape or size and would like the chance to become a winner of your local heat why not come along and join in the fun in the four classes: 'handsomest cross-breed dog', 'best cross-breed rescue', 'prettiest cross - breed bitch', and 'the cross - breed the judge would most like to take home!'
