A rescue dog from a Boston-based rehoming centre will be rubbing shoulders with the stars when she appears on national television tonight.

Lucy, a nine-year-old lurcher from Jerry Green Dog Rescue, will feature in the award-winning Paul O’Grady Live programme from 5pm.

Famous for loving dogs, O’Grady regularly invites a selection of rescue dogs onto his show as part of an adoption appeal to help them find the perfect owner and a new home.

Lucy will be joined by a handful of other dogs also up for adoption.

Rosie Myers, behavioural advisor at Jerry Green Dog Rescue in Algarkirk, will be on hand to make sure Lucy is well looked after and at ease on the night.

“It’s an honour to be invited onto the Paul O’Grady show for the second time; we all know how much Paul loves dogs and is a supporter of adoption from a Rescue Centre,” said Rosie.

“I know all the dogs very well and Lucy is very comfortable travelling. Plenty of viewers will fall in love with her kind nature and I’m confident that she will find the caring owner she deserves.”

Other guests on the show include internet sensations Ylvis, actors Matthew MacFadyen and Stephen Mangan, and singer Gabrielle.
