Meet the dogs
Meet the stars of the second series - our wonderful Battersea dogs.
Missy & Bella
Endearing Staffie mum and daughter Missy and Bella have really had a tough time – losing a loving home, battling serious illness and needing surgery. Pining when apart, and inseparable together, this little family unit needed all the comfort Paul could give them.

Una, Dots, Tresa
Sometimes, love means having to do the hardest things, and for their homeless owner that meant asking Battersea to care for Mastiff pups Dots, Una and Tresa, who had been living in a van and hadn’t learned to walk. With lots of help from our experts and Paul, they took the steps which led to great new homes.
Brindle pup Haven has lots to learn too. Can you be his guide through life ?
London can be a scary place, especially when you’re an elderly Jack Russell Terrier far from home on a freezing dark night. Luckily for Ethel a kindly cabbie brought her to Battersea – and a few hours later her distraught owner turned up too, for a very happy reunion with his little lost dog.
British Bulldog Frankie stole Paul O’Grady’s heart. This uniquely beautiful boy came to Battersea as a stray and, sadly, was diagnosed with a serious and rare spinal cyst which means he has difficulty walking. Like Paul, Bulldog lover Emma Penwill fell for Frankie’s charms and he’s living out his days in lovely Somerset.
If you loved Frankie, meet Bulldog Princess Banana, a special girl who also has hurdles to overcome.
75 kilo Old English Mastiff King might be the biggest dog Battersea has ever taken in – and boy was he a larger-than-life character (and smell) too. A skin condition meant King had some personal issues, but medicated baths and lots of Battersea TLC helped him out. When the Peteys from Dartford, Kent, came calling, fragrant King landed on his huge feet and is now a big part of the family.
Apple, Pie, Noah, Digit, Rusty, Pepper, Hughie, Louie and Willow
Thanks to the dedication of Battersea staff who hand-reared these Staffie cross pups after they were rejected by their mum at just one day old, all grew into bouncing, healthy youngsters with bright futures. You'll have to wait until later in the series to find out what happened next for these adorable pups.
