Scooby-Doo turns 40 this year. To celebrate they're on the hunt for the UK dog who looks most like him. The search will confirm which breed is the closest match, both in looks and personality, to the lovable, but mischievous Scooby – reputedly based on a Great Dane. But who has seen a brown Great Dane with black spots? I'm thinking this is a competition in which a cross is going to win, either that someone with a fawn Great Dane and a talent for canine body makeup!
The press release says the dogs will be judged on strict criteria: a nose for mischief, large floppy ears, a spring in their step, brown coat with large black spots, a lovable personality and of course, an endless appetite! The winning pup will be crowned ‘The Living Scooby-Doo’, with his owner winning an exclusive stage debut on the Scooby-Doo Live Show, which is touring the country over his summer.
