Lacy, an English mastiff boxer cross, starred in the Paul O’Grady show on Monday where she hit it off with singer Stacey Solomon.

The five-year-old ended up in the Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, after she was dumped on the streets by her cruel owner.

Lacy weighs around 55 kg (nine-and-a-half stone) but is a gentle giant who is well behaved.

She can be rehomed with other dogs and children over 12.

Paul O’ Grady, who is passionate about animals and has five dogs of his own, said: “Lacy is calm and gentle and needs a home. All the dogs on the show

may not be aesthetically pleasing but they’re all gorgeous in their own way.”

Stacey Solomon added: “If my children were over 12 she’d be coming back in the car with me now.

“She’s a lovely dog who’s been overlooked because of her size.”

Jackass prankster Steve-O, Ms Solomon’s partner, was also extremely taken with Lacy and smothered her with cuddles.

He said: “I love rescue dogs, I have two of my own. I really hope she finds a home. She’s such a great dog despite her size.”

Lacy is currently in foster care with Tony Kay who said: “She’s the best dog I’ve ever fostered. I would take her myself but I can’t commit right now.

“I really hope someone sees her on the Paul O’Grady show and gives her a second chance home which she really deserves.”

The award-winning presenter’s show airs weekdays at 5 pm on ITV.
