Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs

Paul O'Grady kicks off his new series with a dachshund who escaped a life of over breeding on a puppy farm, and a Yorkshire terrier found walking the streets

We’re in seventh heaven as Paul O’Grady returns for a magnificent seventh series of his BAFTA-winning, Battersea-based dog rescue show.

It's puppy love for Paul

Tonight, pooches in need of puppy love include dachshund Birdie, an anxious new mum discovered on a golf course with five puppies (birdie/golf course/get it?); Sophie, a four-year-old Cane Corso (also known as an Italian mastiff) cruelly mistreated and found tied up on a dual carriageway; and Yorkshire terrier Felicity, who is 14 (that’s 98 in human years) and wants nothing more than to snuggle up on the sofa and watch Judge Rinder.

As ever, a mix of the heart-wrenching and heart-warming in equal measure.
