The Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue are looking for the dog who has the waggiest tail, the cutest face or just looks good for its age at its seventh annual dog show on Sunday 6 September.

The Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue is a local charity that rescues and re-houses unwanted dogs, will be judging pooches at Oakwell Visitor Centre Barn. It will cost £1 per class to enter, which will be taken from 11am on the day and judging will start at 12 noon.

Classes include:

  • Best veteran
  • Cutest puppy
  • Most handsome dog
  • Prettiest bitch
  • Best fancy dress

There is also a junior handler class in which youngsters 14 years and under can show off their basic obedience skills with their dogs.

New this year is a ‘Best of the Bullies’ class aimed at promoting bull breeds which take up the majority of spaces in dog rescues.

Kathy Hirst, from Yorkshire Rose dog Rescue:

“They are overbred and much maligned but make a fabulous family pet!”

The event will finish with a ‘free entry’ class for any dog that has not already won a rosette, with the winner being the dog the judge would most like to take home.

In addition there will be demonstrations of agility and flyball (on the lawn in front of the Hall), an opportunity to ‘ask the vet’ courtesy of Vets4Pets, Birstall, and the Dogs Trust will be doing FREE microchipping of dogs between 11am and 2.30pm.

Other charities attending will be Guide Dogs for the Blind, Dogs Trust Freedom Project, BCWR Kittens (cat rescue) and Oggles Hedgehog Rescue.

There will also be tombolas, an inflatable bouncy fire engine and a variety of stalls selling everything from doggie items such as beds and collars to homemade treats, food and refreshments.
