The series will follow Wood Green, The Animals Charity in Cambridgeshire, as they match rescue dogs with potential dog owners.

Channel 4 posted the casting call on their website.

It reads: "We're heading back to Wood Green, The Animals Charity in Cambridgeshire, where the team of expert dog-matchers are ready to introduce you to your perfect pooch.

"We're looking for people who can offer a lifelong home to a rescue dog, and would be happy to share their reasons for doing so."

To apply, head to the website, right here.

Previous episodes of the series interviewed dog owners to determine why they chose to adopt a pooch. Many people welcome animals into their lives for a variety of reasons, including companionship, to encourage exercise and just sheer love of dogs.

In Ireland, the pandemic saw a huge rise in pet ownership. Animal charities like The Dog's Trust and the DSPCA saw a significant increase in queries relating to adoption throughout 2020.
