A grubby stray poodle has found television fame thanks to star entertainer Paul O'Grady and the team at Old Windsor's world famous dog rescue centre.
Two-year-old Dougal was dirty and matted when he was brought to Battersea Dogs and Cats's Home's Old Windsor centre at Priest Hill.
But he looks the 'bees knees' on Paul O'Grady's television show For the Love of Dogs show tonight.
He was cleaned up by Battersea’s groomer at Old Windsor Catherine Etheridge.
Now he has been found a new home with Sarah Bugge in High Wycombe.
Sarah said: “I already have a poodle called Cilla. She and Dougal were meant to be together.
"Poodles do require a lot of upkeep – their feet and the fur on their legs gets dirty from going on walks. But it is part of the deal." To rescue a dog at Battersea call 0843 509 4444 or visit www.battersea.org.uk.
