A Border Collie puppy from Dartmoor has been named the South West’s best farm dog by South West rural insurance company, Cornish Mutual.

 

Cass was crowned the winner after a month-long search celebrating the region’s hard-working dogs based on photographs sent to Cornish Mutual or posted on social media.

 

Cass’ owner, Ben Cantelo, is a small scale farmer on Dartmoor and sent the photo of his loveable puppy on the early morning rounds.

 

Mr Cantelo said: "I took the picture a few months ago.

 

"Cass and I were out early with the sheep and she was just sitting there on the back of the trailer with the sun coming up and I thought it would make for a great image.

 

"Cass is only young, so still being trained, but without her I can’t do what I need to do in order to keep the farm operating. She is so important."

 

The runner up picture was of Poppy the two-year-old Springer Spaniel taken by Avril Trehane from South Petherwin near Launceston.

 

Managing director of Cornish Mutual, Alan Goddard said: "The response was great and it shows how much we all value the rold dogs play on the farm, and within the family."
