Torchwood’s John Barrowman Meets Dogs Trust Education Dog

As a patron of Dog’s Trust Torchwood star John Barrowman has helped to turn many pups’ hope of finding a forever home from fantasy to reality, so when the sci-fi star and his sister Carole visited a Waterstone’s book store in Glasgow to sign copies of their first young adult fantasy novel Hollow Earth Dogs Trust Glasgow’s Education canine Alfie was on hand to show his support for the Spot-loving luminary.

A proud Poppa to a trio of tail-waggers (Captain Jack, Harris and Charlie, a Cocker Spaniel who was adopted from Dogs Trust) Barrowman– who helped to shine a spotlight on the grand opening of the Dogs Trust Cowbridge charity shop in late 2011– became fast friends with Alfie, a Collie mix who holds star status in the eyes of the many children he meets on his travels to schools across Scotland to teach responsible dog guardianship.
