Speaking to BBC radio a few days ago, O’Grady admitted that what we see on the show is only part of the story.
Indeed, he said the show only features animals suitable for “TV.” Some dogs, in much worse condition, are not shown.

The dog lover and TV star went on to explain that some dogs that come into Battersea are in such bad shape that the show’s producers think they would shock viewers.
O’Grady also said he was so pissed off by the way some dogs were treated that he almost loses it during the shoot. The producers had to ask him to redo covers, in a more friendly way, several times.
“I’m still looking at the camera and hope the viewer realizes what I’m really thinking.”
For The Love Of Dogs has aired 9 seasons so far, each time telling the story of adoptable dogs at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
It has always been a huge hit with animal lovers and their pets. And while we now know that what we see on screen doesn’t give the full picture, we’re grateful that Paul O’Grady is doing what he’s doing to help these poor doggies.
