Get ready, all lovers of dogs, canine-human besties, and tearful match-maker stories with happy endings: A new original show is coming to the Z Living network in January 2017: Finding Fido.
Check out behind-the-scenes snapshots, videos, and so much more here!
So what's Finding Fido all about?
Finding Fido focuses on matching the right person with the right dog. Underwater dog photographer (yes you heard that right) and behaviorist Seth Casteel hosts the show, playing matchmaker each week to a person and a pooch.
He works to understand the lifestyle as well as physical and emotional challenges of the guests to help him determine which dog is the perfect fit for them. Then three dogs from local shelters are chosen to come and meet the guest and ultimately one becomes the lucky dog that finds a forever home.
Ultimately these matches aren't just a win for the emotional health of the guest, but for their physical health too. After the initial union we get to check back in and see the total wellness transformation that many of the guests experience, thanks in large part to their new companion.
In Seth's own words, "The best part of my job is hanging out with these dogs. I like people, but I gotta tell you, I like dogs a little better... if we all lived a little more like dogs the world would be an even better place."
This isn't pet store window browsing or a cute puppy contest (although there are plenty of cute dogs to be seen!). But at its heart, this show is all about giving rescue dogs a second chance, and in the process, saving people, too.
We're not alone in our crusade to find the perfect dog-human match.
POPSUGAR has joined in on the action with a web series of their own. Finding Fido: The Dog Who.... tells the stories behind the special unions between dogs and their owners as they prepare to meet famed underwater dog photographer Seth Casteel who will help them capture a one-of-a-kind image. We can't wait to see the awesome stories and images that come out of this series.
So when can you watch it?!
