Can you help reunite this poor puppy with its owner?

Have your say

I AM a professional dog groomer, established in 2012, who offers a one-to-one friendly and reliable grooming service in Elson, Gosport.

I held a charity dog fete raising funds for the Dogs Trust on Saturday and raised more than £200.

People also brought along old blankets, beds and dog food to be given to RSPCA’s Stubbington Ark.

All money raised will be donated to the Dogs Trust.

This dog charity is based throughout the UK with its main aim to rehabilitate and rehome stray and unwanted dogs.

So the money raised from this event will be put to good use.

It was open to all to attend, including friendly and well behaved dogs.

It was held at Coombe Road, Gosport, opposite the HEDCA Community Centre.

There were refreshments offering a slice of homemade cake, cupcake or shortbread biscuit accompanied by a cup of tea or coffee.

People enjoyed these in a small seated area where they socialised with other dogs and their owners.

Raffle tickets were available on the day – with thanks going to Garsons Garden Centre, Wilkinsons, Go Bowling, the Co-operative and many more for their kind contributions.

These included gift vouchers, doggy accessories and a chance to win a full groom from a professional dog groomer.

Side shows included doggy face painting, guess the name of the dog and guess how many dog treats in the jar.

There was also a doggy face board for owners and dogs to be photographed.

We are glad the fete was a fun-filled afternoon for dogs and humans alike.
