WESTERN Australia’s puppy of the year just got a little bit cuter.

One-year-old Tiboodle (tibetan spaniel cross miniature poodle) Instagram star Xandee was recently voted by more than 700 people to be WA’s favourite puppy this year in a Petbarn pet competition.

The cute Yokine canine won a $200 voucher but the fur-baby’s owner Mariana Logan donated the prize to the Dogs’ Refuge Home.

Xandee announced her kind act on Instagram on December 14, letting her 9523 followers know she donated much-needed supplies to the organisation.

“Today is one of the happiest days in my life and I am grateful for that,” Xandee wrote in the Instagram post.

Ms Logan got Xandee after her six-year-old pet Izzy died from an aggressive cancer and she discovered the two were related.
