Channel 4’s The Dog House 

The Dog House is set at the animal charity Wood Green in Cambridgeshire and follows prospective owners as they are matched with a rescue dog specially selected by an expert team of matchmakers.

“In the previous series we found there were many reasons for people wanting to rescue a dog,” says Codie. “For example, loneliness, extra company for a child, to encourage exercise or to live in the moment more!”
