Albino Dog Proves Beauty Is Only Skin Deep On 'For the Love of Dogs'
The albino Pekingese, a breed which originated in China, is one of the most unusual-looking dogs to ever come through Battersea's doors and to feature on the popular ITV series.
Viewers will watch as Boo captures the hearts of Battersea's expert vets after he stopped by to have sight-saving surgery on his extremely protruding eyes.
His owners purchased him online but brought him to the renowned rescue when they became concerned about his health.
During his time at the London-based shelter, Boo's unusual looks led to many comparisons with The Neverending Story character Falkor, the Luck Dragon.
Despite the pooch's tumultuous start in life, the 11-month-old's loving nature and unique appearance quickly won the hearts of Battersea staff and volunteers.

And thankfully there's a happy ending to Boo's story as presenter Paul, 64, helps find the sweet dog a loving new home.
I think we're going to need the tissues for this one.
Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs is filmed across Battersea's three centres; London, Old Windsor and Brand Hatch.
In eight-part series, Paul has introduced dynamic duo Macy and Peaches, who have high hopes of becoming sniffer dogs, a hyperactive Pug puppy named Pancake and Battersea's Greyhounds, who often end up staying longer than other breeds.
Apart from Paul, the BAFTA-nominated show features Battersea's expert vet Shaun and the rescue's Canine Behaviour Trainer Ali.
Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs continues on Wednesday, 27th November at 8pm on ITV.
