Dog competition

This week we’re celebrating pets who have fought through adversity

Not all of our beloved pets have had the best start in life.

This week, for our Pup Idol contest, we’re celebrating dogs who have fought through adversity.


You can vote for your favorite dog

Whether it’s overcoming illness or bouncing back from an accident, we salute the bravest dogs. We launched a search for the top Scottish puppies earlier this year and over 300 people submitted photos and videos of their furry friends.

In total, there are eight categories – we’re looking for the cutest, bravest, funniest and most heroic dogs as well as the best companion, the smartest pet, the best puppy and the best rescue.

Now it’s your turn to decide which of our shortlisted Brave dogs – from Poppet the Dalmatian who was born deaf to Mannie the Jack Russell border terrier mix who was attacked by another dog – should be nominated for Pup Idol 2021.

Simply choose which of the eight dogs you think should be top of the category.

Over the next few weeks we will be holding votes in all categories and once we have all eight section champions, TV presenter and dog lover Lorraine Kelly will choose the top dog overall.

Our 2021 Pup Idol will win an incredible prize for its lucky owners. Thanks to Holidays in Argylewe have a fabulous dog-friendly break for the canine champion’s family.
