The Dog House Episode 8

Thursday 24 October 2019

In episode 8 of The Dog House, poorly Harmony the lurcher arrived at Wood Green as a stray with a broken tail. Nervous and in need of a lot of love, could she find the perfect match? Small but confident collie-cross puppy Joey, and nervous toy-poodle Gizmo, are also looking for the perfect match. 

The amazing stories that feature in The Dog House are just a snapshot of the work that we do here at Wood Green. But you’re in the right place to learn more – and discover what goes on behind the scenes. Watch episode 8 in full by clicking here.


Meet Gizmo

Gizmo came to Wood Green after his owner sadly became too poorly to look after him. This sweet, shy poodle needed someone who could give him plenty of cuddles, and it seemed he’d found his perfect match during filming of The Dog House. Sadly, it didn’t work out and he came back to us four weeks later. But we continued the search for a new owner, and we’re delighted to share that he has since found his forever home!

Did you catch Harmony on The Dog House? Found as a stray, she was very poorly on arrival at Wood Green – shaking and underweight with a bleeding tail. Watch our behind-the-scenes chat with Gemma, who shares more about how we helped turn her life around.
