Simon Cowell appeared on Good Morning Britain today to meet a dog he saved from a South Korean dog farm after he donated £25k to free hundreds of doomed animals.
Filmed during Britain’s Got Talent auditions earlier this year, Simon was reunited with a dog he saved back in 2018.
Sitting on a sofa talking about how he feels about the farms, Simon said: “It’s like eating a friend.”
Clearly, and understandably, looking upset by the subject, he was then surprised when he was told to turn around.
Rescue dog Robin was in the room – one of the hundreds of dogs who were saved from one of the dog meat farms by the Humane Society International thanks to Simon’s donation.
As little Robin wagged his tail contentedly, Simon struggled to contain his emotions and reached out to cuddle him.
Taking Robin for a snuggle, Simon thanked those who donate. He said: “Without people like you he’d be in someone’s stomach.”
Robin now lives a very happy life with his tale constantly wagging in Oxfordshire with his enthusiastic and loving dog mum, Pip.
