Primrose Hill was awash with dogs and their dutiful owners on Saturday as PupAid put on its annual dog show.

Raising awareness of the “cruel” and “horrendous” puppy farming industry, the Primrose Hill-based charity’s show was this year judged by Channel 4’s Made in Chelsea star Lucy Watson.

Categories included London’s Fittest Dog, Dog that most looks like a celebrity, Dogs loudest bark and Prettiest Bitch.

A regular draw for celebrities and their pooches, it featured familiar faces like Great British Bake Off’s Sue Perkins and Countdown star Rachel Riley.

The event came just days after a landmark debate on puppy farming in Parliament.

Vet Marc Abraham, who founded PupAid in 2010, said: “My PupAid team and I are extremely thankful to everyone who’s supported our campaign, and incredibly proud of what’s been achieved so far.”
