Magi Doran: Meet Bailey dressed up for a dinner date


Donna McCarthy: This is Jacob our beautiful golden lab from Shannon Co. Clare


Amy Byrne: Balto is his name, from Dublin! He's a happy, 4 year old, Malamute/Labrador cross. I've never seen another dog like him, we're always stopped on our walks by people asking about his breed and complimenting him on how he's such a handsome boy


Kevin and Kate Kline: Buttercup is a three-year-old American-born Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Since moving to Dublin a year ago, she’s shared her adventures on Facebook and Instagram where she’s garnered a pretty large following.

5. MAX

Lorraine Murphy: Here is our dog Max, or as we call him, Moo bear! He is a 5 year old pug x beagle (Puggle) that we've had since he was 11 weeks old. He is our best buddy and gives the sweetest cuddles. There's never a dull day in our household because of him, how could you have a down day when you know you're coming home to this little super hero!!

6. SAM

Kieran Walsh: Sam who is 15 years old


David Rochford: Meet Cooper


Aoife McDonough: This is Freddie, a five year old yorkie cross. He was rescued two years ago by the DSPCA and then adopted. Since then he has transformed from a terrified malnourished little fellow into a smiley and much adored family pet!


Ann Hogan: Hi - here is our dog Cooper who is 6 months old. We think he's gorgeous


I'm Murphy (from the Kingdom of Kerry) and my mammy adopted me from the ISPCA after I had a terrible few years on a puppy farm. I'm almost 8 years of age so too old for the catwalk but I think I'm rather photogenic and turn heads & get attention where ever I go! But it doesn't just stop at looks, I've the best personality too! If I was voted Ireland's best looking dog, I think my mammy would break the internet with excitement!
