To celebrate International Pets Day, Amazon is proud to announce the first Australian Face of Amazon Pets: a two-year-old toy poodle from Sydney named Poncho. Poncho loves long hikes, hates anything water-related (except muddy puddles), and has a lifelong ambition to destroy every single squeaky toy in the world!

Poncho was one of 11 pets shortlisted for the title created to celebrate the launch of Amazon Pet Supplies. This category offers a wide variety of popular brands like Greenies, Fancy Feast, Supercoat, Hill’s Science Diet, and Schmackos. Poncho’s face and wild hairdo will be featured on Amazon.com.au from today, and he will also get to enjoy a year’s supply of Hill’s Science diet premium pet food.

Poncho is just one of many pups that will be celebrating this International Pets Day in Australia, only 49% of homes have children, while 62% of Aussie households have a pet![1]

Here is a little something “fur” the waggiest, cuddliest members of your household.
