The Britain’s Next Top Dog Winner
The public vote has selected the overall winner!
Breed: Shetland Sheepdog
Home: Scalloway, Shetland
Fenton (on the right of the winning photo) has been her owner Kaylee’s rock for nearly 10 years now and has achieved so much in that time. She has been Kaylee’s inspiration for picking up a camera and taking photos which have since gone into a calendar and raised tens of thousands of pounds for two amazing charities – TASC and Bravehound, and has now made a fantastic contribution to Cancer Research UK. Kaylee and Fenton also started a campaign together called “Don’t PAWS, Start CPR” which has now taught thousands of people from all over the world how to do a lifesaving skill – the video shows Fenton teaching you how to do chest compressions, it’s both hilarious and educational for which they won an award from the ambulance service in 2018.
Kaylee and Fenton have also been doing videos teaching people about covid, how it effects the body and the importance of keeping safe. They’ve also been doing their bit to keep people positive and smiling during lockdown through our fun videos and pictures.
Kaylee’s full time job is as a paramedic with the Scottish ambulance service. In what has been THE hardest time in her career, Fenton has been the soul who has kept her going through every day. Every morning lying in bed, wondering if she could keep going through the exhaustion and sadness, Fenton has been the energy she needed to get up as well as the hug and smile her aching heart needed when I got home. Dogs are the most incredible creatures, but Fenton has something very special about her. She truly is one in a million and now Britain’s Top Dog!!
