DogTown on NatGeo

A reminder that the National Geographic Channel is airing new DogTown episodes at 10 pm on Fridays.  Hightlights from this week’s episode are below.

Rush, a shepherd mix airlifted from a Middle East war zone, is withdrawn and frightened of loud noises — a suspected canine case of post-traumatic stress.  After being bitten by the dog, trainer John Garcia begins to work with Rush so that he can teach him to trust.  As you might suspect, I’m very interested in this one due to the book I just read about Lava. 

Then, adoption specialist Kristi Litrell meets a rejected beagle named Jasmine who stumbles when she walks and can’t control her bladder.  Kristi test-drives a possible solution — doggy diapers.  And Scruffy, a terrier mix, managed to survive Hurricane Katrina but is now petrified of new situations, from walking through doorways and onto floor surfaces to getting into cars.

Also, here are the profiles for this week’s featured dogs. I have also included some additional photos from this week’s episode below:

Happy watching!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
