Have you been watching this season of DogTown? If you haven’t, I would encourage you to do so. It’s such an inspiring show, with people who are doing amazing work on behalf of homeless animals. DogTown is the name of an area of Best Friends Animal Society in Angel Canyon, Utah. We absolutely love Best Friends, and we know we aren’t alone in our love either! Ellen DeGeneres called DogTown one of her favorite shows, and often has folks from Best Friends on her show!
This week’s episode, which will air tomorrow night on the National Geographic channel (check your local listing) is going to be great! Shy dogs are often among the first to be euthanized in shelters because they are difficult to adopt, but not at DogTown, a no-kill facility. Little Girl, a Catahoula leopard dog mix, is given a second chance and learns to overcome her fears with help from John Garcia, in hopes that she will be adopted. Later we will follow a morbidly obese Chihuahua, Tuli, with a tiny head and a pineapple-size body, who must loose weight to become healthy enough for adoption. Finally, we meet Shockey, a terrier mix who is full of energy and excitement that makes her hard to control. See how DogTown manager Michelle Besmehn works to help Shockey listen to commands and overcome her stubbornness.
Here are some sneak peeks:
