IMAGES: Harrogate charity dog show 2014

Around 1,000 people braved the driving rain on Sunday to support the second Harrogate charity dog show.

A sausage dog joined dalmatioans, an Irish Jack Russell and plenty of pugs at the Claro Road event.

Defying the soggy conditions, organisers Kim Metcalfe and Verity Watts ensured around £1,500 was raised, money which will be split between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Verity said: “We are delighted with how the show went.

“Of course, the weather was disappointing, but plenty of people came out to support the event.

“We were pleased that people stayed when they got there, too.

“Everyone had a great time.”

Winner of the Best in Show was Livvy, owned by Tom MacDonald.

Livvy was rescued by her owner when he found her in Turkey.

The show was sponsored by Vets4Pets.

Further classes included best sausage catcher, golden oldie, best rescue and waggiest tail.

Harrogate Advertiser News Editor Alex Johnston judged the Most Like Owner class.

The show was set up in 2013 after Harrogate was named one of the UK’s most dog-friendly towns.
