FANS of the late Paul O'Grady's show For The Love Of Dogs were left in tears after finding out the sad truth of one of the dogs on the show.
In one segment of the hit show, the star, who sadly passed away on March 28 this year aged 67, is seen with a two year old Spaniel called Murphy, who was housed at Battersea Dogs Home.
The pooch had an incredibly sad face and lacked the enthusiasm a dog his age should have – and viewers took to Twitter to express how emotional they were feeling after learning of his abuse.
In heartbreaking scenes the much loved TV presenter said: "Murphy was found tied up a by a member of the public just two days ago. He’s one of the most withdrawn dogs that I have ever seen."
When Paul arrived at Murphy's cage, he was withdrawn and sad. The star added: "This is criminal, there’s no excuse, no excuse whatsoever, and he must be in agony as he’s got scabies and mange. "
He added: "Well, this is tragic. It’s like all the light has been taken out of him."
