BIRMINGHAM, England – A Jack Russell terrier competing at the Crufts 2017 dog show has become a viral hit after flopping at the competition over the weekend.
Olly’s owner, Karen Parker, told Crufts that he was found in a basket at 6 weeks old and taken to Blue Cross, a British animal welfare charity. Parker said she’s had the pup since he was 10 or 11 weeks old.
Parker said the response to his video has been “outstanding” and that Olly has been enjoying the attention.
“I can’t believe the response he’s had from the YouTube clip,” Parker said. “I can’t believe how many people have taken the time to put comments up (online) for him.”
Olly’s latest antic, Parker said, is another of many stories about the dog.
“He’s just so much fun,” she said. “He’s a real character.”
