5.0 out of 5 stars I Am Volunteering At Best Friends When I Retire! September 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow. This series came to my attention when I recently got ahold of the book, DogTown: Tales of Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Redemption that is due out in October. Not having the National Geographic Channel, I bought this dvd. I can't remember the last time I was so moved. I think I cried three times. I bawled my eyes out over Bruno dying. I cried when a trainer had to part with the adorable Wiggles. I shed a few tears over the terrified terrier, Animal. I had to gather my own dogs onto my lap to comfort me!

This dvd is three episodes. The first is about a chow named Bruno that is really old and having some nerological problems. There is also a dog that had bitten an infant and rather than allow it to be put to sleep, Dog Town attempts to train it around kids and such so that it may be adopted. The second episode covers a group of dogs that were discovered abused and neglected in a breeding farm. I did not realize this, but apparently breeding farms that sell to pet stores often keep dogs confined in a 2 by 2 cage and except for breeding once or twice a month, they obtain no physical contact with other dogs or humans whatsover. That is where the terrier comes in. The third episode warms hearts by introducing viewers to Wiggles, a bulldog with a drunken walk and a bowel problem.

I learned a lot from these shows. The next time I add to my family, I will getting my new family member from the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

Something that did bother me, however...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Friends August 28, 2008
Format:DVD
Best Friends is an amazing place and the DVD is great. I hope it helps bring to light this wonderful sanctuary. You can buy this DVD (for only a couple bucks more plus postage) on the Best Friends.org website and proceeds will benifit this great sanctuary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Town Second Chances February 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Anything having to do with the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary gets an automatic 5-Stars in my book! This particular DVD has a special on the rescue of 22 pit bulls from the horrendous Michael Vick. It truly shows how compassionate the Sanctuary is by taking in these dogs when so many other agencies wanted to put them down. The progress that the workers have made with these dogs is nothing short of a miracle. If people want to see all the progress, then go to[..]and see for yourself.

The program is great; I loved it. After watching the series I researched Best Friends and decided to spend my next vacation volunteering there. It was my best vacation ever and has become an annual event for me and my family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great beginning to a lovely series. October 19, 2011
This episode sets the tone for the series: A group of dedicated staff and volunteers doing their best for the dogs who need their care.

The skill and love that the humans bring is as beautiful as the love that the animals return. The setting in Utah is gorgeous as well.

Strongly recommended for individual or family viewing with two minor caveats. The decision to euthanize a very old dog whose medical condition rapidly worsens may be upsetting for very young children and while it's very brief and clean, there's a quick moment that shows a puppy being spayed that most viewers would find either interesting or innocuous, but that could give an uncomfortable moment to anybody who's sensitive to seeing operations.

Like all episodes, this one overflows with dogs loving on people and people loving on dogs. This would make an excellent episode to watch with even young children because there are no potentially scary moments, no major animal suffering, and some great lessons about accepting and loving animals with disabilities as they are, rather than rejecting them.

Minor spoilers:

There are two dogs with past behavior problems, one dog with an illness that gets treated successfully, and one dog with a neurological disability and some incontinence problems who gets a loving home.
