Stories of Fear, Loss & Betrayal
This documentary reveals the sobering realities behind America's obsession with dogs, using startling images to show not only how far some dog lovers will go for their pets, but how far the nation has to go before it treats all dogs humanely.
Americans have conducted a long love affair with canines, but lost amidst all the pampering are unpleasant truths about dog ownership, care and commerce, not to mention the daunting odds that face millions of unwanted shelter animals.
Produced by HBO Documentary Films in association with Motto Pictures and Bonnie Pinoche International; and Runaway Films and Cutler Productions
