Congratulations to Gallie who has been named BBC Countryfile Magazine’s Dog of the Year 2021 photo contest winner.
His owner said: “Gallie is my big boy front and centre in the photo. The little girl behind is his sister Raine. Both are rescue dogs living their best life here in the UK. This has made my year!
Who won the Dog of the Year Lockdown Hero?
Congratulations to Henry Wee Wheels, who won our Lockdown Hero category.
His owner said: “Henry Wee Wheels was rescued in China by Slaughterhouse Survivors Animal Rescue and is now living life in the fast lane on two wheels in the UK. Henry had horrific injuries which left him with a broken back. He is now a full-time therapy dog visiting schools and sharing his experiences with children and offering support to both special needs and mainstream children. He facilitates talking about acts of kindness, resilience, being different, bullying, disability awareness and determination. He also gives great cuddles.”
Both winners win £1000 in Edgard & Cooper naturally tasty dog food and treats.
About the sponsor: Edgard & Cooper
Edgard & Cooper is the pet food brand on a mission to make you, your pet and our planet feel good.
The founders, Louis, Koen & Jurgen set up the company after becoming frustrated at the lack of tasty healthy options available for their dogs – named Edgard and Cooper. Their aim was to create a product that was packed with high quality and easy to recognise ingredients, while also reducing the environmental impact on the planet.
Edgard & Cooper know that great taste comes from great ingredients. That’s why each recipe is packed full of fresh meat, nutritious offal, healthy fruit and wholesome veg.
In line with a mission to become the world’s most sustainable pet food brand, the entire range is easily recyclable thanks to the paper-based bags used for dry dog food, treats and dental products. So far, use of sustainable packaging efforts has saved nearly 7.5 million plastic bags from being produced.
In addition, 1% of all sales go to The Edgard & Cooper foundation- a standalone charitable entity set up to improve the lives of dogs and cats around the world. To date, nearly £140,000 has been donated.
