Together they rescue, train and pair each dog with a family or person in need of a new best friend.

Across 6 very different episodes, Joel and Laura work towards a mutual rescue, that sees a dog paired with a new owner. But these matches can be complex, and Laura must ensure the dog will work well in the prospective new home, and just as importantly, that the owner is the right fit for the dog.
