DogTown: Rescue and Renewal

DogTown: Rescue and Renewal
When nearly a thousand puppies are found abandoned in deplorable conditions in a West Virginia puppy mill, DogTown immediately jumps into action. Dog Care Manager Michelle Besmehn leads her team to rescue dogs like Barney, a Shih-Tzu who has sores on his paws from living in a wire cage and Parker, a young dachshund with rotten teeth and a mouth infection that makes it difficult for him to eat.
