The search is on for the paw-fect poster pooch to front Suffolk's biggest annual canine celebration - following in the furry footsteps of previous stars.

Organisers want this year’s Suffolk Dog Day to be the biggest and best yet, after the 2018 event was cancelled due to the hot weather.

Backed by this newspaper and BBC Radio Suffolk, they are kicking things off with a springtime search for a poster dog to promote the 2019 extravaganza, hosted at Helmingham Hall on Sunday, July 28.

“We will be searching high and low across Suffolk’s parks and public places, pet shops and poodle parlours to find the new furry face that fits with everything our event stands for,” said Tim Holder of Suffolk Community Foundation, which organises the event.

Suffolk Dog Day is one of the county’s largest outdoor charity events – to date, it has collected £500,000 for grants, which are then distributed to charities and community groups.
