Email a hi-res photo of your Print Shop Pooch, along with the relevant facts (as above), to:

Full name: Belle Dougall 

Breed: Yorkshire terrier 

Age: 11 years old 

Time at company: Six years 

Job title: Paw-ce manager 

Job description: Belle’s key roles are maintaining order within the team and providing cuddles when necessary. She is also a part-time cleaner – she allows no food to touch any surface that she can reach, meaning she also has earned the title of ‘lunchtime supervisor’. She is also tasked with greeting customers and melting hearts, which she takes great pleasure in. 

Special skills: Spotting birds from miles away, successfully chasing away the bin lorry each week and hearing the toaster pop from another room and being at your feet before you can start buttering.

Favourite colour: Pantone 2707U and 7534c. These are Belle’s favourite colours as they remind her of her favourite toy, ‘Elephanty‘, which she has had since she was a puppy all those years ago.
