On the fifth episode of Finding Fido, host and canine expert Seth Casteel helps standup comedian Chris Pleasant, his wife, Kali, a sales & marketing professional, and their 3 1/2-year-old daughter Brooklyn find a shelter dog to adopt. The family were especially interested in an energetic, younger dog to accompany Brooklyn and — as Chris wryly stated — "tire her out," as well as encourage the adults to exercise.
After meeting Lobster, an energetic 1-year-old Terrier/Poodle mix; Scottie, a laid-back 4-year-old Scottish Terrier mix, and Blackjack, a 4-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix, the Pleasant family, in a surprise move, decided not to adopt any of the dogs they met. Instead, they decided after careful consideration that they weren't in a good place to open their home to a dog, due to the age of their daughter and how they imagined it might effect their family — a responsible decision that Seth ultimately applauded.
