Visit Scotland Ambassadog campaign – 2016

In spring 2016 Visit Scotland launched a nationwide search to find an Ambassadog to represent them.  The Wee White Dug beat over 200 other applicants to reach the final shortlist of 9 assorted dugs, large and small.

We decided to withdraw from the final due to other commitments, but we were honoured to make it so far and had great fun taking part.

Here are some of the boy’s media appearances from the campaign.
