The past year has been difficult for many people. Being in lockdown and dealing with the pandemic has brought its own struggles and worries. But if there is one thing you can guarantee that it is the love for dogs and the help they give us in our hour of need. We asked you to share your lockdown dog heroes with us, and we have been inundated with pictures of your doggos – here are just a few …
Kerry Louise Allen: My girl was a god sent for me. Our walks and adventures, cuddles, endless kisses and naps saved my sanity during lockdown. She was the best company.
Sarah Charlesworth: My two furry babies Ozzy and Lola. I am disabled and they were the best company in a long time before the lockdown. Such softies and they give the best cuddles. Always at my side.

Suzanne Wilson: Ebony has helped me improve my mental health. I couldn’t have done it without her.

Sophie Walklate: Enzo was my protection buddy, he was a great listener, kept me busy and overall amazing. I don’t think I could have done mentally the last 5 months without him.

Kevin John Wallbank: My boy Zuse was amazing that he likes to go for a walk, which keeps me fit and healthy and always makes me fuss, which is good when I have a bad day at work.
8th from 13th
Heather Louise: Not only during the lockdown would I get lost without my little Luna.
9 from 13th
Charlotte Louise Cope. After getting my bump … felt like trash. Don’t think she could be closer.

Andrew Cunningham: Those two definitely got me bogged down.
11 from 13th
Ben Jaques: The source of frustration and love and the occasional big paw in the face.
