He is already a hero hound and now hearing dog Jamie is set to be a cover-star canine.The model mutt won a calendar competition after owner Maggie Lee, from Herne, entered him by chance.

His image will now grace the cover of the calendar, produced by dog boutique Bow Wow, based in Fareham, after a professional photo shoot for pooches next week. Maggie said:

It was fantastic to hear Jamie had won – his photo had the most likes on Facebook, a total of 148, and the nearest dog had 78, so he clearly has a lot of fans. We’re very excited by the news and looking forward to the photo shoot and to seeing the finished calendar.

Jamie, a cockerpoo, was trained in Fareham by the South Hampshire branch of charity Hearing Dogs and has been with Maggie since last year. Proceeds from sales of the calendar will be donated to Hearing Dogs. Bow Wow’s owner Karen Hassan said:

Our first year in The Trading Post has been a great success and this calendar project is our way of celebrating all the terrific new friends we’ve made – two legged and four legged alike!
