A handsome British Bulldog called Buster Boo has been crowned the winner of our popular Paws in the Park competition.

The two-year-old rescue dog beat-off tough competition from 510 other dogs who were entered in the contest to become the face of St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Paws in the Park 2017.

Following deliberations by a panel of judges last Thursday, Buster Boo and his owner Katie Dumican, of Bury St Edmunds, were invited to the hospice for a photo-shoot.

Katie said she hopes his success will raise more awareness of ‘how rewarding it is giving a rescue dog a home’.

“I was extremely happy to win. I really didn’t expect it; it came as a complete shock,” she said.

“Buster is perfect in my eyes he has a gorgeous face, he has a cheeky but very loving personality and makes me smile every day.

“He is an extremely loving boy and very loyal. Everyone who meets him falls in love.”

As the winner, Buster Boo, will appear on marketing materials for Paws in the Park, which will be held at Nowton Park on Sunday, May 21.

She will receive a 10in by 8in professional portrait of Buster Boo and a family ticket (two adults and two children) for the event.

Charlie De-Moore, hospice events and challenges fund-raiser, said: “We have seen some wonderful dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds and the decision to pick just one was almost impossible, but Buster Boo really did catch all of the judges’ eyes, and he also proved popular with the public on our Facebook page too.”
