Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of Dogs

During the show, Paul met a gentle Great Dane looking to be rehomed.

Tammy was surrendered to Battersea Dogs and Cats home at six years old after her owners were unable to look after her.

The giant dog was later seen having a small lump removed, which involved her going under anaesthetic.

Thankfully, the lump wasn’t serious and Tammy was given the all-clear.

Meanwhile, the episode also followed the story of a feisty Dachshund with a particularly bad chewing habit.

Viewers took to social media to share their thoughts throughout last night’s show.
