Best Dog Rescue Videos & Books

Some of my favourite dog rescue videos... and a few dog rescue books, too.

The Possibility Dogs: What a Handful of "Unadoptables" Taught Me About Service, Hope, and Healing: Susannah Charleson...

Flight-instructor Charleson's well-received Scent of the Missing (2011) drew from the intimacy between search-and-rescue dogs and their owners. This book partly concerns therapy dogs, who comfort the elderly, convalescent, and traumatized. But the main subject is the less-familiar psychiatric-assistance dog, who knows when to respond to his or her owner's subtlest behavior.

Helping Shylo get over her fears. (By Eldad Hagar)

This video is a little long and may be boring to some, but I wanted to show an uncut version for people to see how long this process takes, and for it to be used as an educational tool for people working with traumatized dogs.

Rescuing a dog from life on the side of the road. Please share this video. - Please make a small donation and help us save more dogs like Faith. So many dogs like her are living on the streets... cold, hungry, and as you will see in a moment, the solution is pretty simple and amazing at the same time.

The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption

Expanding on his Sports Illustrated cover story, Gorant (Fanatic) offers a chilling investigation into Michael Vick' s dog-fighting operation and the men and women who brought him to justice and rehabilitated the rescued dogs.

Rescuing a dog (Nili) from the desert. Please share and help us find her a home.

Nili was dumped in the desert, and just sat there, waiting for her owner. My dear friends, Liraz and Alan saw her as they were driving home from Nevada to California and tried to help her. They spent 6 hours the first day, 6 hours the second day, and then they called me for help.

Rocky, rescued today from life on the streets (video by Eldad Hagar) - Rocky lived on the streets for a very long time, and when we came today to rescue him, he showed no resistance... it was the easiest rescue in the history of dog rescuing :-) I named him Rocky because his coat and his skin is so damaged, and petting him felt like petting a rock.

Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan - The Complete First Season

If you think your dog has behavioral problems, you'll feel better after watching 10 minutes of Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan's hard-luck cases. The smashing success of Millan's National Geographic Channel series is due partly to that feeling of relief--that no matter how bad your own dog's behavior, by and large, it's not nearly as bad as Millan's clients'; it's kind of like Nanny 911, but with dogs.

Dog rescue: Watson, the three legged dog - Please share and help us find him a home.
