Pudsey has to be accompanied by someone at all time in case he is dognapped.

The famous pooch - who along with his handler Ashleigh Butler won the latest season of 'Britain's Got Talent - is so well known that there are now fears he could be stolen by people eager to cash in on his talent.

Ashleigh told HELLO! magazine: "We've had to up security. There's a chance he could be dognapped. We make sure he's never home alone."

The 17-year-old also revealed she has no plans to retire Pudsey because he would get depressed.

She said: "He's one of those dogs that wants to be busy. If we stopped performing or I put him into retirement he'd hate me and get depressed. He loves showing off. The bigger the crowd, the better he performs. He's a natural born show off."

Ashleigh says Pudsey's performance on the 'Britain's Got Talent' is the first time he hasn't made a single mistake in his routine.

She explained: "I couldn't believe the 'BGT' final - it was the first routine in his life that he did perfectly. I think he knew that he had to up his game. I was amazed at how well he did, especially with all the pressure."
