DogTown: Homeward Bound

Dr. Patti Iampietro spends time with Lake, a retriever mix who lost her sight due to complications with diabetes.
Meet one of DogTown's toughest challenges, Clemance, a shepherd mix rescued from the 2006 Lebanon-Israel war. DogTown manager John Garcia helps the traumatized canine overcome her aggression toward people and other dogs when she is on a leash. John teaches Clemance through a strong relationship that meeting dogs while on a leash is no reason to lash out.
