You may have seen the dog-tastic performance on Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday 23 May as doggie star of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Tippy-Toes took the stage for her dancing début with owner Jackie Prescott. Jackie, from Oxford, has worked as the animal rescue charity’s Groomer for 3 years. She and Tippy-Toes often wow the crowds with their heel-work to music routines at Battersea’s events, where Tippy and Jackie perform specially choreographed dance routines.
Following in the footsteps of Kate and Gin, the doggie dancing act on last year’s show, the dynamic duo have now decided to step it up a gear, and prove their skills at Britain’s ultimate talent show.
“Tippy-Toes and I are so excited to be involved in Britain’s Got Talent, and I hope that our involvement in the show will help to raise awareness about how fantastic Battersea dogs are. Tippy is such a clever little dog with a wonderful character and it is a privilege owning her.”
“We hope that dog lovers across the country will support our act as it would be the most fantastic honour for Tippy and I, and for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, if we got to perform in front of Her Majesty the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.”
Felicity Brotherton, Animal Welfare Manager at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home said;
“Everyone at the Home is so proud of Jackie and Tippy-Toes. Tippy the dancing Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross is a firm favourite with all the staff at the Home. She always brings a smile to our faces and we want Jackie to know that all of her friends and colleagues at Battersea are rooting for her. Good luck Jackie and Tippy-Toes!”
