A DOG and her pet human are embarking on a paw-some charity challenge.

Bella, who is a rottsky (rottweiler crossed with a husky), will be walking 62 miles throughout October to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

She will be joined by her owner, Jamie Johnson of Abercarn, on the challenge – with the 62 miles equating to two miles each day of October.

This is part of a UK-wide dog walk challenge being hosted by Cancer Research UK encouraging dog owners to stay active while supporting the charity.

Mr Johnson said: “We aim to begin on October 1 and hit the goal of 62 miles by the end of October.

“We will be walking our local mountains and trails to reach this goal, raising money for a great charity.

“People can donate – if they wish – by clicking on the link to donations setup on my Facebook.

Money raised will go to Cancer Research UK which has a vision to “bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”

The charity helps combat cancer through researching, developing policies, and raising money.
