Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This sweet, easygoing series shows the process by which one of Europe's largest animal rehoming centers matches dogs to deserving humans. Potential adopters, who come from all walks of life, share stories about who they are, and the challenges they hope adopting a dog will help them overcome. As a result, the dogs are framed as potential healers, who have the power to help a well-matched owner live a more fulfilling life. It's not easy to watch frightened dogs being dropped off at the shelter, or see dogs reject an excited family. But these scenes are brief, and The Dog House: UK has more than enough beautiful animals and happy endings to make it worth the watch.
