Poppy Crowned The Perfect Pet For New Homes Campaign In Sussex
28 Aug 2019

A young golden retriever named Poppy has been crowned the winner of Linden Homes’ Fox Hill ‘Star of the Show Home Competition’.

The competition called on dog owners across Sussex to submit a photo and a short bio of their beloved pet to be in with the chance of being the furry face of promotional materials, such as adverts and leaflets, for Linden Homes’ Fox Hill development. As the winner Poppy was invited to star in a photo shoot in the show home to illustrate how pets are an integral part of what makes a house a home.

In the same animal loving spirit, Linden Homes has also donated £250 to RSCPA Brighton, to help towards caring for other animals currently awaiting a new forever home.

Poppy is eight months old and has been enjoying life with her family since December 2018, Poppy is well looked after by two warm hearted owners and two young children. Paige, one of Poppy’s owners said: “Poppy has filled our home with love and fun and makes our hearts melt! One of her favourite activities is to play in the garden, especially hide and seek!”

“Its fantastic Poppy was chosen as the winner of the competition; we know how beautiful and lovely she is and the photo opportunity is a great opportunity for others to see how wonderful she is!”

Poppy was treated to a photoshoot at Fox Hill, where she posed for the camera in style. Her pictures will be used as part of Linden Homes’ new advertising campaign for Fox Hill and surrounding developments and will appear in leaflets, adverts and other marketing collateral.

As part of the competition, Linden Homes also donated £250 to RSPCA Brighton, to help towards caring for other animals currently awaiting a new forever home.

Ginny James, Sales and Marketing Director at Linden Homes South East, commented: “Poppy is a beautiful and well-behaved dog – she was a pleasure to work with and will certainly make our new advertising campaign eye capturing.

“We’d like to thank everyone from the local area who took the time to enter the competition. Dog lovers are passionate about their canine companions as they really do make a house a home, and that really came across. With so many beautiful pooches entered we certainly had our work cut out choosing a winner!”
