Give a Dog a Home - BBC One Wales
Heavy metal singer and dog lover Benji Webbe joins forces
with volunteer pet rescuer and presenter Fran Donovan to find homes for some of
Wales’ abandoned puppies and strays. They are on a mission to match unwanted
dogs with loving new families - visiting animal shelters all over Wales on
their quest to find the dogs who need their help the most. In this episode they
are trying to match the Barrett family from Cardiff with the dog of their
dreams. Mum Emma and Dad Connor want a family pet for their three children
although middle son Owen - who has autism and wants a four legged friend the
most - will be the one who has to make the big decision, and choose a new dog
from four hopeful candidates selected by Benj and Fran.
While Benj scours the rescue kennels at Newport City Dogs
Home (across the river from his home in Pill) Fran goes spend the day searching
through the lost and found pets at Cardiff Dogs home - a place where she
regularly volunteers at as a dog walker. The pair also arrange for mum Emma to
meet another parent with an autistic child who has adopted rescue dogs to give
their daughter help and companionship with her condition.
Packed with tips on dog care and featuring some of the
cutest animals on screen, this is a fun and heart-warming show which celebrates
animals and their champions in Wales.
