The demand for dogs in the UK has risen sharply in the last year. At Wood Green the Animals Charity, the team seek to match abandoned pooches with hopeful new owners. For some, it’s love at first sight. For others, attachment can take longer to bloom. In this episode, cheeky Jack Russell Rocco seeks a new home after his loving owner’s health took a turn for the worse. Can he convince Charnelle and Holly and their son, seven-year-old Reay, that he’s better than a French bulldog? Fur flies as Karen and Stefano meet two of Wood Green’s biggest and hairiest residents, husky brother and sister Olli and Kalli. And Jess is looking for unconditional love after a recent break-up and Staffordshire bull terrier Gloria might be the best buddy that she needs right now.
