A Balnamore pet has taken the ‘top dog’ spot in one of BBC’s Countryfile Magazine 2021 award categories.
Decided by a public vote, proud pooch Gallie has been announced the winner of BBC Countryfile ‘Dog of the Year’ photo contest for the picture taken by owner Christopher McMullan.
The prize for winning the contest was £1,000 to spend on dog food and treats.
Speaking to the magazine following the win, Christopher 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!
“The prize will be donated to the Weimaraner Club of Great Britain Rescue, and Blue Weimaraner Rescue and Rehoming UK with thanks for their dedication to the breed.”
