Perfectly Imperfect

Tango, a three-legged cross-breed, was winner of the Perfectly Imperfect category.

Tango was used as bait and had his ears cut off, teeth filed down and a leg removed after being run over. Credit: RSPCA

The RSPCA said it started Ruffs as an alternative to "beauty pageant-style dog shows which judge dogs primarily on looks."

The Kennel Club's Crufts dog show was won on Sunday by a poodle called Ricky.
