Lucky Dog

Lucky Dog

Spring 2014 Television
Ages: 13 - 16 yrs.
Rating: TV G

Brandon MacMillan saves lonely, unwanted dogs. He has devoted his life to helping stray and homeless canines find a purpose and a family that will love them. In one episode, he works with Luke, a dog found roaming the streets of Los Angeles. Luke is very shy, but Brandon thinks he'll be a good fit for a family that is hoping to adopt a dog.

We watch as Brandon works with love and kindness to train Luke, and to make sure the family is ready for a dog. He offers the audience tips along the way, about training and being ready for pet adoption. All in all, this is a nice show with a heartwarming theme, that also shows practical ways to respond to the tug on one's heart strings when one sees a sad and homeless animal.
