Paul O’Grady has made a plea for a lonely Golden Retriever dog at Battersea Dogs Home.

The For The Love of Dogs star, 65, begged for the sweet pooch to find a home.

Sharing on social media, he said the dog Jasmine is in ‘desperate’ need of a home but has some health issues.

Addressing his some 350,000 Instagram followers, he shared: “I’m back at Battersea and with the beautiful Jasmine again who desperately needs a home. She’s a really lovely dog with a little bit of a bladder problem. All her details are on the web site. Thank you.”

Paul is a patron for the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in South London.

Poor Jasmine has a bladder problem

And a third user quipped: “Oh bless her. My mum has a bladder problem, wonder if Battersea would do a swap, Jasmine looks much cuter.”

Just last week, Paul slammed an upcoming BBC series for ‘promoting designer dogs.’

While sharing another snap with Jasmine, he fumed: “Guess where I am? It’s good being back at work.

“This gorgeous one-year-old retriever is called Jasmine. She’s got a bit of a dribbling problem but nothing drastic, apart from that she’s perfect.

“There’s a programme on BBC3 at the moment called ‘Will my puppies make me Rich?’ This kind of crap only encourages puppy farming and I only hope that the BBC come to their senses and take it off air immediately.

“It’s a bit of a worry when the bright sparks at BBC3 believe this is suitable viewing. You don’t keep a dog to make money off it. I’ve seen what excessive breeding does and it’s pitiful. Shame on you.”
