DogTown: The Road Home

Shocky, a Staffordshire terrier-mix, is a friendly but hyperactive dog that can't stop jumping on people. Trainer Michelle Beshmehn, at the DogTown clinic in Southern Utah, hopes to make her adoptable by curbing her behaviors.
Shy dogs are often among the first to be euthanized in shelters because they are difficult to adopt, but not at DogTown, a no-kill facility.
