I got to watch an advance premier of Dogs of War and I loved it! I love the concept of pairing these rejected animals with our war torn vets to offer both a second chance. The series premier is tomorrow night, Veteran's Day, how appropriate!
Here is some of the press:
DOGS OF WAR spotlights combat veteran Jim Stanek, who returns home struggling with PTSD. He looks into getting a service dog to help him heal, only to discover how expensive they are, and how long the wait to be paired with one is. So he starts his own nonprofit to rescue dogs from kill shelters, train them as service dogs and partner them with struggling veterans at little or no cost.
The show premieres Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 10PM ET/PT and then moves to Sundays at 10PM ET/PT beginning Nov. 16.
In an era when most reality TV is hypersexualized, about cutthroat competition or designed solely to make us laugh at the culture of its "stars," it is so refreshing to be associated with a series like this, which spotlights a man who uses the greatest pain in his life to offer the greatest comfort to the lives of others.
And for those of you, like me, who don't have cable, there is an A&E app in the App Store which will allow you to watch this show as well as other popular series, such as Duck Dynasty!
Let me know if you watch the show and what you think!
