Eddie Hughes MP and his Dogs Trust Dog

Owner’s Name: Eddie Hughes MP  

Constituency: Walsall North


Why have you chosen to enter with a Dogs Trust rescue dog?

Because although I love dogs I do not have one of my own.


What are your favourite characteristics in a dog?

I like dogs that are energetic and affectionate.


What dog welfare issues do you think need tackling?

Puppy smuggling is clearly the most high profile issue but also ensuring safety of dogs in cars in hot weather.


How do you think people can ensure they’re responsible dog owners?

They could get advice from the nearest Dogs Trust Centre or read the blog on their website.


Why should you and your Dogs Trust rescue dog win Westminster Dog of the Year 2019?

Hopefully beginners luck will help! I’ve only been an MP for 2 years and not entered before – so we will try hard…
