HE’S yet to win a prize for the puppy with the strangest name.
But at just six months old Zandaplatz Petit Pitre for Lenmau is already top dog twice over.
The French bulldog pup, owned by David Green, of Milnsbridge, won the any variety minor puppy class at York Canine Association’s open show.
And in the same week the pooch – known as Hugo for short – won gold at Bakewell Show, Derbyshire, in the variety utility puppy class.
Hugo’s temperament and quality of breeding impressed judges.
And it doesn’t stop there. Hugo is off to the Birmingham Championship Dog Show this month.
So where does the odd name come from?
Mr Green, 38 , said: “Zandaplatz is the breeder’s registered kennel name. Petit pitre means little clown in french and Lenmau is my kennel name. He’s very loving. He’s a real lapdog at home.
“I’m very proud of him picking up two prizes when so young.’’
