Oxford Mail:

Amy Brown, from Witney, sent in a photo of her Springer Spaniel Rosie.

She said: “She’s my little sidekick and best friend, she works with me, comes out with me, basically never leaves my side.

“She had a horrible past and has overcome so much anxiety. She’s not just a dog to our family, she keeps us all smiling.”

Georgina Harkins, from Didcot, sent in a photo of her dog, also called Rosie, a Romanian rescue cross breed.

She said: “Rosie was found dumped on the streets starving and severely unwell at roughly two months old.

“She was then rescued and taken into the UK and adopted at six months.

“She was nervous and frightened when she first arrived and was terrified of everything.

“She will be two years old this summer and now she is thriving!

“She’s confident, happy, healthy and extremely clever.

“She loves learning and training and has built so much confidence, she is the perfect companion and such a beautiful dog not only to look at but with a gorgeous nature too.”

The winner will be named the Oxford Mail Perfect Pet 2023, and the £50 prize will be on its way to one very proud owner.

The competition was launched to coincide with National Pet Month.

A campaign ran throughout April to celebrate and raises awareness of responsible pet ownership through educational campaigns and resources across its various platforms.

The NPM website says: “As an educational campaign, NPM is unique in bringing together animal welfare charities, professional bodies, pet businesses, schools, youth groups, and pet owners.

The campaign was coordinated by the National Office Of Animal Health (NOAH) And UK Pet Food.

With rising living costs and UK pet owners, charities and rescues feeling the pinch, the campaign aims to provide plenty of practical support for pet parents and carers in 2023.
