Jorgie Porter's dog saved her
Jorgie Porter has revealed her pet pooch Lady helped her get over the death of her grandmother last year
Jorgie Porter's pet pooch has mended her broken heart.
The 28-year-old actress was left distraught when her grandmother Elizabeth - who raised her along with her mother Julie - tragically passed away last year but believes her dog Lady, who she rescued, got her through the ordeal.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "Getting Lady changed our lives. Mine and my mum's. My mum didn't want to leave the house after my grandmother died, so obviously there was a reason to. It changed everything. It's just a brilliant thing, and I know it's really sad."
And, although she's regularly trotting around the globe, the blonde beauty loves coming home to little Lady when she's had a bad day because she makes her smile.
She said: "You've had a bad day and they [animals] just change everything, don't they?"
Meanwhile, the former 'Hollyoaks' star is now thinking about getting her adorable four-legged friend a little companion and is considering a career change.
She explained: "Well, I've always said that Lady needs a little mate. I would like a dog community if I could. When I go out to Los Angeles and stuff, people have their dogs and the guy that I live with, he looks after people's dogs sometimes, and I'm like, 'Oh my god, I could be a dog walker!' "
