Every year, this unique day gives the dog-loving public the golden opportunity to help raise awareness about the UK’s cruel puppy farming trade by attending this amazing celeb-judged fun dog show in London.
We hooked up with some fantastic organisations all like minded people like Nowzad who rescue dogs of war founded by Pen Farthing who wrote the books ‘One Dog at a Time.’
Emma also met with the Fabulous Finn The police Dog who is also famed in a book Fabulous Finn the Police Dog who came back from the brink. We are working closely with the team Finn to get Finns Law Passed.
Hertfordshire, October 5th 2016. At around 2 a.m., PC Dave Wardell and his dog, PD Finn, were trying to apprehend a robbery suspect when he turned around and attacked them. Finn was stabbed with a ten-inch-bladed knife, both through his chest, via his armpit and then – the knife bound for Dave – through the top of his head. Finn no doubt saved Dave’s life, but the race was on to try and save Finn’s.
Dave Wardell’s heartfelt memoir charts an incredible journey of friendship and loyalty. It is a celebration of the bond between one man and his dog, from when Dave collected Finn from his kennels at just nine months old, all the way through to Finn’s recent and hard-earned retirement. The book charts the career of a highly trained, highly decorated dog. In his time on the job Finn tracked offenders of all kinds; found missing children; tackled armed offenders; saved lives. But Finn isn’t just a police dog – he’s also a cherished family pet and this is his remarkable, life-affirming story.
