A HAPPY, cuddly pooch has been crowned the winner of our Star Pets competition.
Miniature Jack Russell Nala was one of dozens of entries of animals of all varieties, shapes and sizes entered in the competition.
But it was the three-and-a-half year old cute canine that won the public vote.
Nala, owned by Jade Dodds and Gary Reed, is a loving dog.
Jade said: “We chose her when she was just one week old and picked her up at 12 weeks.
“She is brilliant.
“She’s a very lovable dog. She goes absolutely mad for tennis balls, loves cuddles at night time and loves going out for walks.
“I entered her because she is so lovely and I wanted to share her with everybody else.
“She has a toy called Ratty which we took for her when she was born and it’s the only one that she won’t rip apart.
“We’re absolutely delighted that we’ve won the competition.”
Nala wins £25 which Jade and Gary can use to buy Christmas treats for their pet pooch.
The Star Pets competition was run in the Herald last month.
Readers were asked to vote for their favourite.
