Ms Logan said she did not realise she was a “crazy dog mumma” until Xandee came into her life.

“She has her own Instagram account and I am the manager of the account.,” she said.

“It is all a bit of fun but she has amazing fans.”

She said Xandee was related to her last dog which died from cancer.

“I had another puppy, six year old Izzy, who passed away from an aggressive cancer that she fought for 18 months,” she said.

“We got Xandee through the same breeder because she was blood related to Izzy.”
