Eclipsed in the rush for so-called designer dogs, some famous British breeds are now threatened with extinction, the world's biggest dog show Crufts warned as it kicked off its annual showpiece event.Greyfriars Bobby, who held a 14-year daily vigil at his master's grave in Edinburgh until his own death in 1872, remains a world-famous dog.But Skye Terriers like him now top the vulnerable British breeds list, with just 28 puppies registered last year.However, Otterhounds have adapted to become docile family dogs.Even Pembroke Welsh Corgis – famously beloved of Queen Elizabeth II – are on the vulnerability watch list, with just 393 puppies registered in 2016 .Now in its 126th year, Crufts sees dog owners from Britain and around the world bring their pets to compete at the 25 acre site.
