An adorable Great Dane has won top spot in a dog selfie competition with an incredible snap showing him posing upside down.
The seven-month old pup posed up for the snap for owner Lauren Draper at their home in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. 
He was crowned 'top canine selfie' in a competition run by the Kennel Club last week.
In second spot was a six-month-old border collie called Brodie Bear, who managed to stick his nose right up to the camera as he waited for the snap to be taken.
Bosses at the Kennel Club, which was set up in 1873 and which operates the national register of pedigree dogs in the UK, released the top 10 doggie selfies after a whopping 39,000 entries were submitted to its 'Cyber Crufts' competition.
