The Swindogs have finally made their arrival in the town - but what do they look like, and what are they called?

For the next month and a half, there will be 30 Swindogs and 42 Swinpups stationed around Swindon as part of a town-wide art trail that supports Julia's House children's hospice.

Artists from Swindon and around the UK have spent weeks coming up with a variety of different designs for their 'dogs, while schools and community groups have been tasked with creating smaller puppy versions of the balloon-shaped sculptures.

Some are covered in colourful abstract art, others depict vibrant landscapes, and a few are painted to look like Buckingham Palace guards, dragons - and hot dogs.

The Big Dog Art Trail is a free walking trail through some of Swindon’s most well-loved and historic parks, landmarks, and streets that shines a light on art and culture in the heart of the town.

As well as encouraging local residents to re-discover the town they love, the paw-some public art spectacle is expected to attract thousands of visitors.
