Meet Frank - The Star, Sheffield's Top Pet competition winner

The adventure and sleep-loving Old Tyme English Bulldog mix has been crowned The Star, Sheffield's Top Pet after winning our reader vote.

Back in April, The Star launched a search to find Sheffield’s cutest and funniest pets, and of all the entries received (and there were quite a few), it was the 18 month-old Frank who took the home the winning vote.

The loveable rogue is a much-loved rescue, Kellie his (dog)mum has had him for just over a year now. The family were donating some food to the local sanctuary in Sheffield just as he was being walked by one of their volunteers and it was love at first sight — you can’t make it up, it was fate.

Kellie said, “Frank's a bulldog mix so we didn't choose the breed, just his lovely squishy face!” I think we’re all with you on that one there.

Paws for thought.

It is a well-known fact that Frank loves to go on adventures with his friends, and he loves to sleep! He also likes hanging out with his sisters, two British Shorthair Cats called Zinc and Zazu. His favourite thing in the world is chewing, followed closely by eating and playing. He is 100mph all the time. He is a big water baby, and loves nothing more than going swimming (although he has to wear a life jacket because he can't actually swim all that well).

His triumphant victory in The Star’s Top Pet competition also means that alongside bragging rights, he’s also won a £50 voucher for Pets at Home.

No doubt he’ll be getting his squishy chops around a variety of treats, maybe he’ll even share some with his siblings? Well done Frank!
