The 15th annual Westminster Dog of the Year Competition was held this week in London - a mixed-breed rescue named Max took home the top prize.

Max was adopted from a shelter home in Cheshire England. Owner Mike Hall says the first time he started the lawn mower, Max got so scared that he jumped into the washing machine.

Among other dogs in the contest, Max's closest competition came from a cocker spaniel named Myrtle and a black lab named Buster. Last year's winner was Tag, a 7 year-old German Shepherd.

The Westminster competition is open only to members of parliament, but it aims to promote responsible dog ownership.
