Mayhew Animal Home injects joy into lives of beleaguered workers

The 90-second clip effectively captures the unpleasantness and tension of each of the confrontations, but with an uplifting resolution as each of the antagonists returns home to be greeted affectionately by their canine companions. "Unconditional love," the strapline reads, "Adopt a dog".

The ad goes live today (6 March) on YouTube, and will air on TV from tomorow night during More 4's coverage of 'Crufts'.
