Hundreds of families flocked to a park at the weekend with their four-legged friends for this year’s Paws in the Park Dog Show.

Chihuahuas, German shepherds, dalmations, border terriers, pugs and Great Danes were just some of the many breeds that turned up at the show in Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch, on Sunday, to show off their talents and mix with other pampered pets.

The event - which has now been annually running for three years - welcomed dogs of all shapes and sizes to take part in competitions including cutest puppy, waggiest tail, best rescue, scruffiest pooch, dog of the day and, of course, best in show.

Paws in the Park is held every year in aid of the borough’s mental health charity Havering Mind.

The final amount raised from the day will soon be revealed.
