This beautifully moving advert for Dogs Trust features an acoustic cover of Dusty Springfield’s 1963 hit ‘I Only Want to Be with You’.

Since Dusty Springfield’s original release, and sometimes under the title ‘I Only Wanna Be With You’, this track has been covered many times over the years by artists including the Bay City Rollers, The Tourists, Samantha Fox and Volbeat.

As you can see in the above video, this new version played in the ad is performed by the Saint Albans-based singer Hope Russell-Winter. Her EP ‘Optimist’, which was released in December, 2015, can be downloaded from Amazon and iTunes:

Sure to bring many animal lovers close to tears, Dogs Trust’s ‘Special Someone’ ad shows an adorable dog befriend a little woollen man who he spends all his time with. After imagining what it would be like to have a real owner to look after him and play with, this doggies dream comes true when the dolls real-life human counterpart arrives to take him home.

The video, which was uploaded to the Dogs Trust YouTube channel on the 18th of February, 2016, ends showing another dog waiting hopefully next to their own woollen doll.

This ad campaign raises awareness of the hundreds of dogs currently staying at one of Dogs Trust’s 20 rehoming centres around Britain. The film shows us just how important a new owner is to a Dogs Trust dog who’s waiting for their special someone.
