Plot Synopsis

Set inside a rural British Dog Rescue Centre famous for its commitment to matching homeless dogs with new owners, THE DOG HOUSE is a one-hour docuseries that bears witness to the joy, comedy and pathos of the human-dog dating experience. A house isn't a home without a dog. There are nearly nine million dogs in Britain -- but finding the right homes for them isn't always easy. Set inside a rural British Dog Rescue Centre famous for its commitment to matching homeless dogs with new owners, this series bears witness to the joy, comedy and pathos of the human-dog dating experience. Each of the eight episodes records the arrivals of unwanted pets complete with heart-rending tales of abandonment. At the same time, they tell stories of dog-hungry human -- families, couples, singletons -- all carrying their own baggage of poignant and touching backstory and hoping their lives might be transformed by the introduction of a new four-legged friend. The climax of each story is the theatre of the meet. Multiple fixed cameras mounted inside a special pen observe every beat of the first meetings between the dogs and their prospective new owners. Will the nervous dog come out of its shell? Will there be a connection? Will lives be changed forever? THE DOG HOUSE had its U.S. premiere on Thursday, July 23, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT on HBO Max.
