A surprise autumn hit, this series attracted five million viewers. The format couldn’t be simpler: Paul O’Grady goes to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home to tell the stories of abandoned and mistreated dogs. Although Paul brings humour to many of the situations, he’s clearly touched by the plight of the animals.

Now he returns to drive home the message that a dog is not just for Christmas. Among the four-legged waifs he meets are a stressed-out husky, a terrier with a dodgy hip and a litter of lurcher puppies.


The comedian helps out at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home during the run-up to Christmas and meets the animals staying there over the festive period. As well as answering phones on reception and giving away some curiously shaped gifts, he prepares a special lunch for the pets, sings carols around the tree and tells the stories of some of his furry friends. Among them are Colleen, a husky that has experienced a phantom pregnancy, former racing greyhound Willow, and NuNu, a St Bernard that only understands Chinese.
