Todays face of DOGTV is Jecky!
Jecky was adopted in 18 October 2011, from Indonesia, by his owner who he loves and protects. Every morning he wakes her up with a knock on the door and kisses!
Jecky is known for his love of dancing and his love of ice cream.
Everyone that meets Jecky seems to fall right in love. I mean, how could you not.. look at that face!
Oh and if you couldn’t tell, he’s a natural model.
We are continuing Pet Week with today’s face of DOGTV: Mocha!
Mocha came into her owner’s life at a time when she needed her most. Her daughter, Angela, was tragically killed in a car accident.
“I did not smile, did not laugh, I just existed. Mocha put a stop to that almost immediately as she demanded my attention and had the cutest ways of getting it. As she grew, her personality just exploded!”
And apparently many people feel this way about Mocha as well! As a true dog fashionista, Mocha has been featured in America’s Top Dog calender and in Pre Westminster, the pet fashion show.
Even more impressively, Mocha uses her contagious happiness to spread joy to others. She loves visiting her friends at the assisted living center, where everyone looks forward to her regular visits.
Recently, Mocha and her owner went to Texas to gather food and clothing for victims in Texas, after the explosion there. Vets needed all the help they could get, and Mocha helped send over 8000 pounds of dog and cat food.
Mocha’s story is very inspiring, one of doing good and shining light in a time of darkness. Keep spreading your joy, Mocha!
Also, we’d like to let all of you know that during Pet Week we are offering free DOGTV online. Enjoy!
Today we are featuring our 2nd place winner, Riley, a 4-year-old English Bulldog. Riley tries to be a symbol of pet adoption, as he hopes to help the cause.
After spending his first 7 months in a cage, Riley found a loving home with his parent Ali. If Riley had not been adopted then, he probably would have been sold to a breeder.
Riley is a very friendly and social dog (among dogs and humans). Its no surprise that his Facebook page (with adorable photos, recipes, and more) is such a hit.
Riley and his family are about to move into a bigger home, and Riley will become a big brother to more fostered dogs. Keep spreading the love!
What a clown!
Today we are writing about Teddy, the 1st place winner of our Faces of DOGTV contest.
Teddy has an inspiring story to tell.
Teddy was adopted in August 2012 by National Mill Dog Rescue. When he was adopted he had injuries such as chunks missing out of his ears scars on his nose, and the causes remain unknown.
Teddy in August (before his adoption) and Teddy 6 months later.
Teddy is a 7-year-old Chihuahua and is making it his duty to help spread awareness about puppy mills. He has felt so much love this past year (and has become quite the celebrity), and is already trying to pay it forward.
Teddy and his friend Harley will be traveling with National Mill Dog Rescue on May 17 to save dogs from puppy mills. Harley and Teddy have raised all the money to fund this incredible rescue journey. They will be reporting back throughout the trip, and we know well keep our ears wide open!
After hearing these rescue stories, we couldn’t help but share. We wanted to express our gratitude to a few of the many amazing humans who have rescued amazing dogs.
After 4 days underground, Lulu was rescued thanks to her determined owner and a few volunteer firefighters.
Lulu, a Jack Russel Terrier, was trapped in an underground drain pipe for 4 days. Lulu’s owner tried to rescue her by herself, along with the help of a mechanical digger. A few firefighters walked by, heard of her plans, and volunteered to help out.
After 12 years of life in a cage, Lizzy walked on grass for the fist time. Here is the inspiring video:
National Mill Dog Rescue found Lizzy in a cage in March, where she had spent her life endlessly breeding puppies.
Diamond, a German Sheppard, was rescued from almost halfway up a 200 foot cliff.
Firefighters had to hike for almost a quarter of a mile before reaching the cliff where Diamond was stranded. A brave volunteer named Michael picked up the dog and repelled down the cliff, holding him on his chest.
Talk about Good Humans!
We are truly inspired by the dog rescue stories that you share with us, please continue to do so. Thank you to the brave firefighters, helpful neighbors, and caring pet adopters out there!
Have a woofin’ good week!

do you have a dog? do you have a cat? do they get along? let us know in the comments!
Have a nice weekend!
Dogs have been riding in our cars in all sorts of ways for years.
But a few rescue dogs in New Zealand have given a new meaning to dogs behind the wheel.
Check out this video of Porter, the world’s first driving dog.
This is no joke, three dogs were trained for two months, and two of them were able to pass a driving test. If this isn’t proof of the pawesomeness of rescue dogs, I don’t know what is!
I wonder if these pups are satisfied by going for a walk..
And they said dogs couldn’t watch TV!!
Have a woofin’ good week,

Whether you’re the “wise” dog,

the “simple” dog,
or the dog “who does not know how to ask”,
DOGTV wishes you a Happy Passover!
Have a woofin’ kosher week!
