A Peterborough staffy who the RSPCA suspect had been dragged behind a car will be the star of his own TV show this week after being nursed back to health.

Alfie was rescued by RSPCA Inspector Justin Stubbs after he was found with wounds down to his bones and at risk of death from septicaemia.

Now the picture of health, Alfie will star in Alan Davies’ ‘The Dog Rescuers’ on Channel 5 on Tuesday, August 23, at 8pm.

Viewers will follow the familiar faces of the RSPCA’s finest, plus some new friends, as they continue their crusade against cruelty and neglect of dogs.

The series features dramatic rescues, inspirational rehabilitations and heart-warming rehomings, plus the four-legged heroes who work on our behalf, new ways to bond with man’s best friend, and the life of a rescue pup from birth, through walkies, and all the way to adulthood.
