Watch Dogtown tonight!

Dogtown: Starting Over

Friday, April 3, 2009 at 10 PM ET/PT on National Geographic Channel

KANAB, UTAH: Ava, a golden retriever who was found with her paw stuck in a coyote trap, plays with a toy at DogTown in Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Southern Utah.

Two homeless dogs named Haley and Hana are rescued from an underground cave in Ethiopia, where it is believed they survived for more than two months after being dumped there by locals. Can behavior consultant Sherry Woodard help the street dogs overcome their fears and improve their social skills in order to take on a domestic world? Hugo, a 100-pound bloodhound, is returned to DogTown after seriously biting a family member. Trainer Pat Whitacre teaches him a safer way to interact. And a golden retriever, Ava, has just arrived with a paw ripped apart by a coyote trap. Dr. Patti Iampietro will take a chance and remove just two of Ava’s toes in an attempt to save the leg. Will this playful dog get back her full and active life?
