Two North East Snowdogs have found a home at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland as part of a public art trail.

The trail, which began yesterday, is in aid of St Oswald's Hospice. There are 61 snowdogs placed around the region. They have been designed by individuals and created by an art team called Wild in Art.

SAFC’s Wonderhound has been installed at the North East corner of the stadium for the duration of the trail, which runs until the end of November, while SAFC Spraydog can be found near the main reception.

And as an added attraction, the football club has created its own black cat trail for families to complete.

Black cats will be located around the stadium site and visitors will be able to pick up a map from the Hilton Garden Inn hotel and will be encouraged not only to visit the dogs but also to find all the hidden cats.

The Great North Snowdogs trail will run until 29 November after which the dogs will be auctioned to raise funds for the hospice.
