Once Bitten

Cesar faces one of his biggest challenges, rehabilitating Janna and finding her a new home and a job.

Check your local listings.

Cesar is challenged to find a home for Janna, a 4-year-old female Belgian Malinois with a strange behavior: self-mutilation. Since the death of her elderly owner, this energetic dog has been stuck in a shelter. The distress of confinement and the lack of motivation have led to severe behavioral issues. She bites her skin and nipples repetitively to the bleeding point. Cesar meets three candidates who want to offer Janna a home and puts each to the test to determine who is the perfect match.
