Ping – a puppy rescued by the North Somerset RSPCA – was given a taste of fame this week, after he appeared on Channel 5 programme The Dog Rescuers.

The programme highlights the frontline work of the RSPCA, as it rescues abandoned and abused dogs across the country, and Tuesday’s episode starred the Brent Knoll animal centre.

The programme showed Ping – a rare Japanese chin puppy – being socialised by the centre’s training and behaviour advisor, Andy Cook, who ended up adopting him permanently.
