One-year-old pup named Britain’s naughtiest dog

A one-year-old puppy, Laya, has been named the UK’s naughtiest pet after a spate of her destroying cushions, duvets and over 20 pairs of shoes!

Pet owners across the UK have been sharing hilarious images as part of a nationwide competition by contents insurance providers, SO-SURE, with the owner of ‘the UK’s naughtiest pet’ receiving a £200 Next voucher to replace those slightly chewed soft furnishings.

After over 150 hilariously funny entries, choosing a winner was very difficult, but the look on Laya’s face with the trail of destruction behind her made her a worthy winner…

1. Laya, Mixed Breed

Laya, a mixed breed from Haverfordwest is the winner of the competition, after being caught destroying all the cushions on the sofa and covering the living room in feathers. The Next voucher might not last too long at the rate this pup goes through shoes, as she has apparently destroyed over 20 pairs!

With so many great pictures to go through, it wouldn’t be fair to only show one. Here are the best (or worst) of the rest, and it’s no surprise dogs are the main culprits.

2. Evie, Labradoodle

Evie from Leeds almost looks proud she has chewed through the family goal net.

3. Daisy, Labrador

Daisy was caught raiding the kitchen back when she was 2. I wonder if she found what she was looking for

4. Lightning, Greyhound

This cheeky pup from Bournemouth was kindly given an old mattress topper for a new bed, but he had other ideas.

5. Gwynnie, Miniature Dachshund

This creative sausage dog has fashioned herself a sleeping bag out of a pillow, impressive!

6. Orion and Cleo, Moggies

Orion and Cleo, two kittens from Portsmouth, have made a game out of removing and shredding all the toilet paper in the house.

7. Shelby, Sproodle

Shelby has chewed a rather large hole in her owner’s favourite reading spot, maybe she was jealous of not being the centre of attention?

 8. Buster, Bulldog

This naughty bulldog from Chelmsford likes to help himself to cushions when the covers are in the wash.
