It’s St George’s Day, and to celebrate, we asked the Buddies team to tell us which of the fabulous Engligh dog breeds is their favourite and why.
Gemma – ‘Definitely Jack Russell’s and Cavalier King Charles for me! I have to say Jack Russell’s, simply because my dog Mollie is crossed with one and I think all the best parts of her personality come from the Jack Russell in her. Our dog before Mollie was Christopher, a King Charles. He was a gentle little soul, very fat, lazy and odd as he was rehomed but still lovely! He hated toys, barked maybe 5 times the few years we had with him and just adored food and cuddles.’
Kirsty – ‘For me it would be an Old English Sheep dog. they remind me of my dad as he was a painter & decorator and they advertised Dulux paint.’
Abbie – ‘I’d have to say Beagle’s. my first dogs were Beagles though so I’m a tad biased.’
Kerry – ‘I like Pointers, gorgeous, energetic and fun loving with lovely cute faces. I’ve always really liked them. I also love Border Collies. Too many to choose from!’
Avi – ‘Norfolk Terriers! I want one.’
Colette – ‘Border Collie-I had a Border Collie called Biscuit when I was a teenager and she was the naughtiest dog I’ve ever met…I loved her!!’
Becks – ‘Bloodhound’s are my favourite. As a kid I loved the Disney film ‘The Fox and the Hound’ and was obsessed with one of the main characters, who was a Bloodhound named Copper. Even now, this is still my go to Sunday afternoon film, and I would love a Bloodhound brother for Elvis.’
Emma – ‘For me it would be English Cocker Spaniel or Border Terrier. I love the English Cocker Spaniel’s because I had one about 20 years ago. My 1st dog belonging to my mum and I and he was lovely, very loving and daft as a brush. The Border terrier is breed of dog we are looking to get soon. Small but sturdy and energetic enough to keep with my boys.’
