He will then appear live in the studio as CBBC’s Pets Factor vet, Rory Cowlam, gives him a look over to ensure he’s fit and healthy.
“Henry is such a friendly dog and I can’t wait to have him in the studio every week,” presenter Lindsey Russell said. “He’s already met the crew, had a good sniff around and seems to love it. Pets have always been such an important part of Blue Peter and it’s so exciting to be welcoming the latest one to the show.”
Petra, the first Blue Peter dog, who made his debut in 1962, is immortalised as a statue in the Blue Peter garden at MediaCityUK in Salford. Let’s hope Henry leaves as strong of an impression.
