Orca – Top of the Pups 2021

Orca was named Petmania Puppy of the Year in 2021 beating off ruff competition! He came out as top dog ahead of a talented pack of 1,500 pooches that entered the annual competition. 26,500 members of the public voted for the finalists but Orca stole the judge’s hearts with his unique back story and heroic exploits!

Jo told us, 

“Since becoming Puppy of the Year, Orca has become a bit of a celebrity. He is treated like royalty in the Sligo branch where he loves the staff. He goes for his monthly groom which was part of his winnings. This is great as he is in the sea so often it keeps his skin and fur in tip-top condition. He won 12 bags of food that he likes to share with his siblings Chicken, Popperz Piglet and Elmo. He had a photo shoot in December which, with a seven-month-old puppy, was quite challenging for Richard the photographer! Orca is a very loveable busy puppy that has a life of love and fun, he brings smiles to peoples’ faces wherever he goes.”

With €1,500 worth of prizes to be won, entries are open from Thursday, Spetember 1st, in-store and online at www.petmania.ie. Every puppy who enters the competition will receive a Puppy Pack from BETA, while each of the top finalists in the region will receive a complimentary treatment at their local Petmania Grooming Studio, a 12kg pack of BETA Puppy Food, a dog bed and a finalist’s rosette.

Puppies must be less than 12 months old on 1st September 2022 to enter, for more see: www.petmania.ie/poty
