When dog lover Paul O’Grady meets an in­jured Saluki, who was found slumped at the side of the road, for once he’s lost for words. The four-year-old hound has suf­fered hor­rific in­juries with cuts all over his body.

Gen­tle and kind

‘There’s al­ways so much I want to say when I see a dog in this con­di­tion, but I can’t on cam­era,’ ex­plains Paul. ‘How can you let a dog get in this state?’ The dog, who the team at Bat­tersea Dogs & Cats Home name Ch­ester, has cer­tainly been ne­glected, but whether it’s wil­ful or not, the staff are un­sure. For­tu­nately, a lady comes in, keen to meet Ch­ester. ‘I saw him on the web­site and he looked gen­tle and kind,’ she says. Soon, Ch­ester’s set­tled in his new home. ‘Every­one re­ally likes him,’ ex­plains his new owner. ‘He’s a lovely dog and he brings such a sweet­ness to my heart.’
