This Dog Was Crowned The Most Adorable Pooch In An international competition

The Portuguese pup is called Yzma.

The Kennel Club, a British organisation dedicated to protecting and promoting the welfare of dogs, have announced the winners of their annual Dog Photographer of the Year competition – the results are pretty heart-melting.

This is the overall winner: Maria Davison from Portugal and her image of an adorable puppy resting his head, which was placed first in the “Man’s Best Friend” category.

Davison said: “This image was already close to my heart and it is one of the photographs I am most proud of.

“It was not only a beautiful, real and candid moment I got to capture, but also a demonstration of the strong bond between one of my closest friends and her dog, Yzma.”

The international competition is in its 12th year and received over 10,000 photos of dogs of all breeds from around the world, including Canada, Russia, Brazil and New Zealand.

Other categories include: Dogs At Play, Dogs At Work, Puppy, Oldies and Portrait and Rescue Dogs. See all the rest of winners of the Dog Photographer of the Year competition.
