DogTown: The Road Home on NGC This Friday (1/29 at 10PM ET/PT)


Friday, January 29 at 10PM ET/PT

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.
