Suffolk miniature dachshund Eevee, who has 17,000 followers on Instagram is hosting the Sausage Dog Picnic. 

Her owner Kitty Brandon, a nurse at Ipswich Hospital, said: "Me and my partner Chris got Eevee, our sausage dog a year and a half ago and she really has changed our lives for the better.

"I started the Instagram for her to post cute pictures of her, and over the pandemic, it really blew up. Sausage dog owners really have a sense of community, especially in Suffolk, so now I wanted to hold a free event for all the sausage dogs, whilst raising awareness for this lovey doggy daycare [ the Dogs Squad]."

The event also raises money for the Ipswich-based Dogs Squad, which supports people with learning disabilities and looks after people's dogs.
