The rain could not put off dog owners who braved the elements to enjoy this year’s Paws on the Moors.

Proud pooch parents entered dog show classes, took part in dog friendly games and browsed stalls on Saturday, June 13.

The day raised £290 for Appledown Rescue and Rehoming Kennels.

Cindy Heidebluth’s border collie Gabor Brandy was presented best in show by judge Andi Horwood and reserve best in show was Sylvia Fancy’s labrador Sookie.

Elaine Rushton from event organisers the Box Moor Trust said: “Despite the wet and miserable weather, we had a fantastic turnout - it clearly takes more than a bit of rain to put off the dog-owning British public.

“We are indebted to all our volunteers, sponsors and supporters, for making it a really fun day with a great atmosphere. Most of all, thanks to all those who came and took part in the activities with their wonderful dogs.”
