Review

The process of matching a homeless dog to a potential new family isn’t easy. The staff at Wood Green Animal Charity do a lot of research to find the ideal pairing, but even so the first meeting can be tense.

Animal lover Megan is very nervous waiting to see border collie Patch: “I feel like I’m at a job interview,” she frets. Meanwhile English bulldog Shane seems more concerned about the disappearance of his handler than making friends with Lisa, while you can see how disappointed Paralympian David is when Jack Russell Ace ignores him in favour of his favourite ball.

There are happy endings to all these doggy tales, though.
