Paul O'Grady: For The Love Of Dogs | Preview (ITV1)

Filmed before his death earlier this year, For The Love Of Dogs returns to ITV1 with the second half of the final series.

Paul and the team are left baffled by a mystery illness which is making a young lurcher pup desperately ill. He also meets a gorgeous Staffie who is too scared to leave her kennel.

Paul uses every trick up his sleeve to try and coax her out into the big wide world. And he meets a tiny old Yorkie, with awful breath, who needs a bit of a makeover.

Last month, ITV announces a two-part series which followed the late Paul O’Grady as he travels through Thailand and Laos to celebrate the work done by elephant conservation centres to rescue, rehabilitate and protect these most majestic, but vulnerable, of animals.

Thailand has the largest number of elephant rescue centres in the world while Laos is nicknamed the ‘land of a million elephants’, and each episode sees Paul travel across the region to roll up his sleeves and muck in to help out at a different rescue centre.

Along the way, Paul also heads out from the sanctuaries to grab a slice of local life by exploring nearby colourful markets, temples, apothecaries and sampling the local cuisine.

Each episode highlights a particular challenge faced by elephants in the region and - as ever - Paul’s love for animals shines throughout the series. The tone is warm, playful and heartfelt and always characterised by his much-loved wit and humour

Paul O'Grady: For The Love Of Dogs returns Thursday 7th September on ITV1.
