Best dressed and cutest puppy were among the categories at a fun dog show supported by Bellway at Littleton Lodge Care Home in Hednesford.

The canine contest took place at the care home, which is next to Bellway’s Green Oaks development off Pye Green Road, on Tuesday 15 August, with relatives and friends of residents invited to bring in their doggy friends to take part.

Bellway donated some snacks, toys and water bottles for all the dogs at the event and there were six winners in five categories.

The event attracted 10 dogs of varying shapes and sizes. The winners were:

  • Best dressed: Marbel
  • Cutest puppy: Ted and Bruno
  • Smartest dog: Bow
  • Best behaved: Jeffery
  • Judges’ favourite: Hugo

Soni Atwal, Front of House Manager at Littleton Lodge Care Home, said: “The event went very well and there was plenty of sunshine as each dog got a chance to shine and it was great way to entertain the residents who enjoyed seeing our version of the Crufts show.

“To have the ongoing support of Bellway means a great deal to the care home so we’re really glad when they reached out last month to find out how they could support us again.”

Rachel Marner, Sales Manager for Bellway West Midlands, said: “Supporting Littleton Lodge Care Home is an absolute privilege. We have taken part in several events with the residents and staff there and it’s wonderful to create links with them and get involved with the community.

“The dog show was a brilliant morning and created a happy atmosphere and lots of fun. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed taking part and there were plenty of smiles all round as the dogs were judged in all the different categories.”

Bellway has supported previous activities at the care home including an Easter fun day for which Bellway donated chocolate Easter eggs, and which was attended by youngsters from neighbouring Poppyfield Primary Academy.

The homebuilder also paid for refreshments for a Salvation Army carol service at Littleton Lodge last Christmas.
