Review

These visits to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home are high on the “ahhhh” factor so it’s no wonder that animal-lover Paul O’Grady has to be restrained from popping a puppy in his pocket and taking it home to join his menagerie. But in between cuddling pooches and larking about, he does see some shockingly mistreated dogs brought in, including a staffie that’s been starved nearly to death.

The show’s a charming advert for the work of Battersea in a similar vein to Animal Hospital, although you’ve got to be besotted with dogs to stick with it for seven editions.

Summary

The comedian follows the work of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London, meeting staff involved in treating, training and rehoming animals. In his first week, Paul helps with the arrival of a litter of puppies, meets a neglected, dangerously underweight Staffordshire bull terrier that was found in a park, and assists in the interview of DJ and presenter Neil Fox and his family, who are hoping to adopt a young Jack Russell.
