Ashleigh Butler says she is flattered after graffiti picturing the country’s most famous canine, Pudsey, appeared on a wall in Wellingborough.

Pudsey’s owner said: “We are of course flattered and it is quite weird that graffiti of Pudsey has appeared on a wall.

“I am flattered but of course I can not condone it.

“I have had a couple of texts already from people who have spotted it.”

The image is understood to have appeared at the end of last week on the side of a building in Pebble Lane, Wellingborough.

Pudsey and Ashleigh are a dog trick act that came to fame in 2012 after winning Britain’s Got Talent.

It was announced at the end of last month that a film will be made about the dancing dog’s exploits, which will be co-produced by pop mogul Simon Cowell’s entertainment firm Syco and Vertigo Films.

Ashleigh and Pudsey – who is a border collie, bichon frise, Chinese crested cross – still live in Wellingborough but have spent most of the year travelling up and down the UK and around the world putting on their entertainment show.

Pudsey has met the Queen, released his own autobi-dog-raphy and been invited to 10 Downing Street. Not only that, Britain’s most famous dog appeared on television at the National Television Awards recently doing his version of the world-wide smash hit Gangnam Style.
