A pub is holding a celebration of pugs and other squishy faced breeds of dogs at a family fundraising summer fete.
The Avenue pub is opening its garden area in a bid to raise money for the Dog Welfare and Rescue Association to care for the dogs before they head off to their foster homes.
The event on Sunday, August 13 starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm. Among the many activities are a photo booth, dog race, a puppy pool and gazebo, a tombola and facepainting.
Some prizes have been donated for the event from local businesses such as Bonnie's Dog Grooming, the Ball Road chip shop and Gorleston Doggy Diner.
The pub suggests people pay a £1 donation to enter to the summer fete.
