DEXTER the fox red labrador will be sharing a well-earned Pet Pamper Hamper after winning the Pets Love Summer competition.

Vets4Pets ran a nation-wide competition throughout the summer asking people to submit photos of their pets enjoying the summer. 

To enter the competition, people had to post their photograph on Facebook and use the hashtag #petslovesummer. 

The winner was Deborah Ebbrell, a client at Vets4Pets Cirencester, and her pet Dexter, who was pictured enjoying a puppy pool party with his friend Freddy. 

Dexter will be sharing the prize hamper worth up to £500 with Freddy.

Stratton resident Deborah Ebbrell, who adopted Dexter just eight weeks ago, said: "I was just surprised. I don't think anything really helped us win other than the fact that he was so cute. 

"We'd always wanted a dog. We had a cat who would not have liked it, and we lost her a year ago. 

"We got to know a family who had a fox red labrador and I really wanted one.

"When I first got Dexter, I felt guilty to have ripped him away from his mother.

"He's really good now. He does not need a lead on walks. He loves other dogs. He loves to play and doesn't care whether they are big or small."
