There is no Next Episode of Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs planned.
In today's episode, Paul's left lost for words when he meets abandoned stray spaniel Willow - she was found tied up to a tree outside Battersea's Old Windsor site in a dreadful condition, suffering from a terrible eye infection as well as awful skin. Thankfully though, this charming spaniel's playful spirit hasn't been broken and Paul quickly falls head over heels for her indomitable spirit. He sets to work trying to get this heartbreaker back on her feet as he nurses her through numerous treatments - but will Willow manage to overcome her long list of problems?
Paul also meets enthusiastic Bud the record-breaking Collie Greyhound cross. Sadly for Bud though, he holds Battersea's most unwanted record - he is their longest resident having been at the kennels for over two years! Bud is a real softie but his Achilles heel is his boundless energy - he is full of life and so in need of a very specific type of owner who can cater for his energetic demands! Paul arranges for Bud to enter a doggie fun run where he'll be on show to lots of like-minded, athletic dog lovers - will he catch somebody's eye and finally end his marathon stay in kennels?
Finally Paul takes on the role of doggie masseur to Jenson the staffie, who suffered accidental permanent scarring on his back that has left his skin dry and itchy. This uncomfortable problem has left Jenson struggling with kennel life, so Paul tries to alleviate his blues by putting his magic hands to work moisturising Jenson's back to try and make his skin silky smooth - will the spa treatment work in cheering up Jenson?
In today's episode, Paul's in puppy heaven as he meets a litter of 10 adorable newborn Staffie cross pups and their mum Luna. Paul has the enviable task of helping to socialise these little beauties who, like their mum, have all been given celestial names. But before Paul can help ween them, events take a turn when Aries, his favourite, worryingly falls sick along with her siblings Mars and Saturn. Paul rushes to Intensive Care to help nurse the poorly pups - but as they're so small and vulnerable, will they be strong enough to pull through?
And not content with just 10 puppies, Paul also tries to get to grips with fiesty Collie pup Tilly who's just arrived into Lost and Found. But the energetic tyke proves to be a real handful so Paul enlists the help of 13-year dog lover Paige, who's at Battersea with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, to help get Tilly on the straight and narrow. And it's not long before Paige is showing up Paul by getting Tilly under control and teaching her a few basic commands - is she going to put Paul out of a job?!
And not wanting to forget the golden oldies, Paul also meets decepit pensioner Tiny the 16-year old Yorkie. This old timer might be doddery on his pins, but he's still got plenty of life left in him and Paul quickly for the charms of this cantankerous senior citizen. But the medical team are worried his arthirtis might be getting too much for him and not only that, who is really going to want to rehome such an old dog?
In today's episode, Paul needs a clothes peg for his nose as he meets Battersea smelliest dog, Max the setter cross. The poor mutt absolutely stinks and although he's a real charmer, he's struggling to make any mates, either human or canine! To get to the bottom of his antisocial problem, Paul takes Max down to clinic, where he finds out his off-putting smell all stems from a chronic ear problem - but is there anything that can be done to help him start smelling daisy fresh? If not, he's going to struggle to find a new home…
It's the final episode of the series, and today's dogs are all in need of an O'Grady shoulder to lean on. First up Paul meets the implausibly cute Dudley, an Old English Sheepdog who is just six-weeks old and looks like a fluffy teddy bear. Old English Sheepdogs rarely come into Battersea, but Dudley's an exception because the little guy is profoundly deaf, which means puppy training is proving tricky. So Paul sets to work trying to teach Dudley doggie sign language, but it proves not to be the easiest assignment as the pup is more interested in playing than learning.
