Rescued Wylie's a top dog

Three years ago a mongrel dog called Wylie suffered horrendous cruelty on the streets of Afghanistan. He was beaten and abused and had his ears and his tail hacked off.

However his life was turned around when he was rescued by Royal Marine and Nowzad charity founder Pen Farthing. Pen sent Wylie to England where he was adopted by Sarah Singleton who volunteers for the charity. Wylie went on to defy all odds and not only fully recovered from the abuse he'd suffered but triumphed to be crowned top dog at Scruffts this year!

Celebrating Alternative Parenting Week

With the big things we all stand together.

– Coronation Street actor Charlie Condou on alternative parenting

According to the Office for National Statistics, families are no longer about mum, dad and 2.4 children. Households come in all shapes and sizes. In 2011, there were an estimated 63,000 families consisting of a same sex cohabiting couple and in 2014, it's estimated that there are 12,000 out gay families living in the UK.

This week celebrates Alternative Parenting Week - raising awareness about same-sex families and single parent families. For Coronation Street actor Charlie Condou, being a parent was a dream he always wanted to fulfil and he is now the proud dad of a little boy and a girl.

The Manchester Dogs Home heroes

Last Thursday, animal-lovers across the country were left in shock when dozens of dogs were killed in an arson attack on Manchester Dogs Home.

In total around 60 dogs died in the fire but that number would have been even higher were it not for three local heroes: Jason Dyer, his son Danny Vere and nephew Dean Rostock, who risked their own lives by running into the flames and pulling pets out of the blaze. Today we're joined by Jason, Danny and Dean plus Anna Stansfield: manager of Cheshire Dogs Home which has now taken in all of the homeless pooches.
