At Wood Green, The Animals Charity, abandoned dogs are matched with loving new owners. The aim is for nothing less than love at first sight, but things don’t always go that smoothly. This time, the meeting pen can hardly contain Rolo the playful Staffie pup on being introduced to New Yorker Nicole and her husband Sam. Eighty-five-year-old Pim thinks that Dexter the beagle is as stubborn as Elizabeth, his wife of 62 years. Is Roxy the shy Jack Russell a better match? And can chihuahuas Bear and Dave convince seven-year-old husky fan Ollie that two little dogs are better than one?
