Bowza the hero of Hadleigh is set to finish off an incredible 2019, by singing on the festive television show ‘Pets do the Funniest Things at Christmas.’
The black Labrador, Rottweiler and Husky cross is now known across the world after his heroic efforts keeping an elderly woman warm as she waited for an ambulance.
Since then Bowza, seven, has been no stranger to TV appearances, earlier this year he starred with Eammon Holmes and Ruth Langsford on another Channel 5 show 'Do the Right Thing'.
He was also awarded "Shining world hero" status by international channel Supreme Master TV.
Bowza's proud owner Don Cox, 72 said: "He always gets in the news somehow, a few years ago he was in a calendar and once we were at a car boot sale and he ended up singing on BBC Radio Suffolk."

A few weeks ago Mr Cox said he was excited to receive another phonecall from Channel 5 asking if Bowza would like to appear on their annual Christmas show and he just knew his dog would be up to the challenge, saying: "Bowza will sing anytime."
Despite not wanting to make another trek to London for filming, Mr Cox has sent a video of Bowza singing Jingle Bells to be included in the show.
You will be able to see Bowza on Pets do the Funniest Things at Christmas on Monday, December 2 at 8pm.
