Following a search to find the Face of Amazon Pets 2018 in the UK, a shetland pony called Crème Brulee Shetland pony has been named the Face of Amazon Pets. Owner Maddie Norris won a photo and video shoot with Crème Brulee with the images and video due to feature on the Amazon.co.uk Pet Supplies store this autumn. She also wins a £1,500 Amazon Gift Card.
“We are so proud of Crème Brulee – we knew he was special and destined for great things. His long blonde eyelashes and fluffy coat make him the ‘mane’ attraction on our farm, and he loves to dress up. He is going to love some of the ‘horse-play’ we’ll have with his new coat, hoof boots and some tasty pony treats we are planning to get with his Face of Amazon Pets winnings.”
– Crème Brulee’s owner, Maddie Norris, Surrey
This is actually a great win, not just for Crème Brulee but for sellers of pet supplies on Amazon. the resultant publicity from Face of Amazon Pets will highlight that Amazon is a place where horse and pony supplies can be purchased as well as the more widely known cat and dog food.
The Face of Amazon Pets competition is designed to showcase Amazon’s vast selection of pet food, supplements, treats and health supplies to toys, accessories, grooming products and the latest in pet technology for dogs, cats, birds, fish & aquatic pets, horses, reptiles & amphibians, small animals, farm animals and more.
Face of Amazon Pets runner up category winners
Cookie the dog
Cookie is a one-year old Toy Cockapoo from West Yorkshire who knows the importance of looking good and engaging with her fans. On her own Instagram account, she loves to perform tricks for her followers including skateboarding, footballing and counting. When taking a break from her social posting, Cookie enjoys helping her owners around the house, emptying the washing machine, opening doors and taking the bins out.
Bailey the cat
Full of character and unlike most of his fellow feline friends – who are widely known to land on their feet – Bailey struggled to master landing on his paws in his first few months. Perhaps, Bailey had the foresight to see his pet model potential and now reaching his first birthday has not only mastered the skill but honed the technique to perfect his cat-walking prowess. He can often be seen strutting his stuff with the best of them in his hometown of Brentwood, Essex.
Hedwig the rabbit
Hedwig the Mini Lop bunny is five years old and was adopted on Valentine’s Day three years ago after she fell in love with owner Kerry’s other rabbit, Motley. It’s no surprise with the Face of Amazon Pets judges also falling for Hedwig’s charm. Fiercely protective of her ‘husbunny’, Hedwig can now relax in the knowledge she is one top bunny and can be seen performing her high-five and spinning tricks with an extra ‘hop’ in her step.
JoJo the bird
Jo JO is a beautiful Yellow Crowned Amazon and is the grand old age of 23 years old. As one of the oldest contestants in the competition, JoJo certainly has life experience having been rescued by a parrot refuge charity in her early years. Quite the character, JoJo has blossomed at home in Huddersfield and can often be found practicing for the influx in attention she expects from her recent Face of Amazon Pets category win. JoJo creates fake electronic phone noises before answering ‘Hello, are you ok? What are you doing?’ Always the professional, JoJo will listen for her caller’s praise before saying ‘thank you and goodbye’.
Lippy the fish
Lippy is an 11-month old Crowntail Betta fish who lives with her owner Mia Fergusson in the seaside town of Scarborough. When Lippy isn’t showing Mia her graceful food-catching jumps, she is happily sharing her tank with her fellow fish friends including Ember Tetras and Least Rasboras.
Bakana the Bearded Dragon
Bakana is six years old and has been living with his owner Tine Lighten-Duncan in Worthing, West Sussex since he was a baby. Ensuring he is camera ready and looking his best, Bakana combines exercise and rest into his daily routine. When he isn’t sitting on his favourite log in his vivarium, he likes to run around the living room and find a comfy spot on the back of the sofa or in front of the window in the sun.
