A popular dog show that raises much needed funds and awareness for rescue animals attracted crowds to Potters Bar.
Animal lovers turned up despite the poor weather conditions on Sunday, April 8, at the Cricket Club, in The Walk.
Rosettes were handed out for 1st to 6th place, with Best Rescue each receiving a donated goodie bag, plus all entrants received a ‘Well Done’ rosette.
The winner of Best in Show was a Rottweiler named Zac.
Rescue volunteers including Lozza’s Lurcher Rescue, Sighthound Stopgap, Hessa’s Homeless Hounds, Greys 11+, and Hetty’s Helpers who rescue hedgehogs, all had stalls in a bid to raise funds.

The dog show was judged purely on a ‘fun’ basis by Writtle College faculty head, Amanda Rosier.
