Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs

Episode 5

In episode six, Paul meets the most unusual looking dog he’s ever seen. Boo, the albino Pekingese is riddled with health problems which make him harder to rehome. He needs an operation on his eye otherwise he might end up losing it. 

Paul helps to soothe Splash, a dog who was rescued from a near death experience in the Thames and is now feeling understandably nervous. 

Paul also meets Norah, a Labrador pup who wasn’t vaccinated and has arrived with a mystery lurgy. 

Series overview

“I’m back! With a whole load of new canine friends who despite tough beginnings, go on to do incredible things.”  Paul O’Grady

Animal lover extraordinaire Paul O’Grady is back for a brand new series at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, ready to meet a whole new round of canine friends. Series 8 of the National TV Award winning programme will be filled with laughter and tears in equal measure, as Paul is faced with more abandoned and stray dogs, meets a few canine heroes and falls in love with some precious puppies along the way. 

Paul joins the team at Battersea as they help more dogs with incredible stories, from a terrier saved from drowning in the River Thames, to a dog found riddled with pellets from a gun. Paul and the team are on hand to give them some much needed rest and rehabilitation in the hope of finding them a loving new home to call their own.
