A four-month-old miniature schnauzer has been named the Fife College Student Association’s (FCSA) Pet of the Year. 

Tosh Renton beat off ruff competition from over 100 other pets to get his paws on the prestigious title and £100 of Pets at Home vouchers.  

Tosh was chosen after a shortlisting committee of College staff, FCSA staff and a rep from NUS Scotland reduced the 107 entrants down to 16 finalists.

The 16 finalists were then voted on by staff and students with voting extended by popular demand.  

Leanne Renton from the College’s Wellbeing and Support team, based at the St Bryscedale Campus in Kirkcaldy, is his owner. 

Tosh said: “I was very humbled to have been shortlisted and could not believe it when I was voted the FCSA Pet of the Year for 2018-19. I'd like to congratulate all of the other nominees as well who are all outstanding pets.”
