Natural pet food company Forthglade was pleased to be part of an unsung hero award in its home county of Devon this month.
A cockerpoo named Niven was recognised for his work as a Hearing Dog. The heroic hound had every reason to wag his tail after winning a weekend stay at a luxury pet-friendly hotel as well as three month’s supply of Forthglade’s natural pet food.
Niven and his owner, Pauline, regularly volunteer at the Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education, enabling deaf students to work with a hearing dog. They were nominated through a charity called Room to Reward, an initiative that recognises volunteers across the UK.
Niven's dedication even made local news channels as camera crews filmed the four-legged hero as he arrived at Devon’s Deerpark Country Hotel to receive his medal and Forthglade goodies.
