Announcing the Crown Dog of Charleston 2019 Winners:

Gregory

Crown Dog of Charleston 2019

1st Place Winner

Gregory

Submitted By: Alice T.

Gregory was recently rescued from a Great Dane puppy mill in NH & moved to Charleston after his rescue! He is a giant puppy who loves to play with all his pup friends, especially at The Barrel. “G” just finished up training classes and was a total rockstar. He now goes to local events with his rescue, Waters Edge Great Dane Rescue, and works as a spokesdog for rescued Great Danes. Everyone who meets Gregory falls in love with him! He has a huge “squish” factor. He is truly a gentle giant.

2nd Place Winner

May Bell

Submitted By: Christopher G.

May Bell is an Aquarius who loves the Greenway, Folly, IOP and Beachwalkers. She’s our fishing buddy and sheds like a mammoth. Her hobbies are napping and snoring. If drooling was an Olympic event she would win gold. She also likes to spend money at the vet for eating bottle caps. Her least favorite song is “So Fresh and So Clean” because she knows it’s bath time.

Mr. Ears

3rd Place Winner

Mr. Ears

Submitted By: Andrea G.

Besides me being cute as all get out, I have quite a unique personality. I am the equivalent of a grumpy old man. I walk like a turtle with stiff legs. (Mommy and Daddy call me “pencil legs”.) I am actually quite a ham…..and my pig like figure concurs! I love snacks(as you can tell), love to socialize, love bike rides, stroller rides, and far rides. Sleeping is what I do best. You can find me in the Lowcountry Dog 2019 calendar. I am Mr. January.
