Christmas came early for the residents of Manchester Dogs Home in Cheshire, when a winter wonderland grotto was set up for them.

The snow-covered space featured a giant gingerbread house made entirely from 2,000 dog biscuits, 1,600 chewy treats, 12 kilos of melted dog drops for ‘cement’ and 24 pup-friendly stockings.

The four-legged friends reacted with delight at the unusual festive décor.

Footage captures the adorable pups munching at the walls and festive hangings.

While the pooches were also adorned with their own reindeer headbands as they sniffed their way around the grotto made especially for them.

Anna Stansfield, speaking on behalf of the dogs’ home, said of the event created by wilko: “We were blown away when we got the surprise opportunity to welcome the grotto to our site for a festive celebration.

“We have more than 60 dogs here that are looking for loving homes – many won’t be adopted before Christmas, so this is a brilliant second-best.

“The pets have all had a brilliant day, and to be honest I think we have as well, seeing how much joy it’s brought them.”
