Shih Tzus are still in the running for the UK's favourite dog breed – now is your final chance to vote.

Thousands of votes have been cast since our sister siteTeamDogslaunched the UK’s Favourite Dog Breed competition in association with Pooch & Mutt. Dog owners all over the country have been battling it out to support their best-loved breed.

Daily Star is backing Shih Tzus as the nation’s most treasured breed – they are currently holding 19th place, but that could all change in this final week.

Cassandra Lawrence championed Shih Tzus for the Daily Star, speaking about her dog, Bobby: "Bobby is my shadow, there isn’t a time of day that he isn’t either on my lap or by my feet.

"It’s quite simple, Shih Tzus love…love, they are such friendly dogs.

"When we’re out and about Bobby often stops strangers for cuddles, and has won himself a legion of fans on our street."
