Jimmy the cocker King Charles cross
Jimmy is a 12-year-old cocker King Charles cross who loves to chase squirrels in the garden.
His owners Serita and Tim Boxall are so chuffed he has won.
They said: "Thank you so much to everyone who has voted! You have made an old dog very happy!"
His family brought him when he was just eight-weeks-old, although he still acts like a pup he does forget he can’t run as fast as he used to!
Jimmy's family say he listens like a human when you're talking to him and if you give him a piece of ham, he will literally do anything.
His favourite toy is his honky pig and every time his owners buy him a new one he bites the honker and stuffing out of them without fail.
Jimmy is his family's best friend.
For those new to the game, every month we will be choosing eight animals across Kent for readers to explore the lives of and vote on who will be Kent's Pet of the Month.
Every week readers will vote on pairs of animals to go to the next round until only one remains.
