Get Your Tissues: Netflix Releases Documentary Series About Dogs

Netflix just announced the release of their new documentary series titled ‘Dogs’, and we’re more than ready for this marathon.


Get ready for a great session of Netflix and woof, because their new documentary series is perfect to watch snuggled next to your four-legged best friend. The media provider announced that on November 16th, their new docu-series, or, more accurately, a dogumentary, will be available to their users globally. That’s right, dog lovers all over the world will get the chance to enjoy this heartwarming series inspired by the man’s best friend.

According to Netflix, this vérité documentary is all about celebrating the deep and meaningful bond between humans and their canine companions. The series will have 6 episodes, all with different stories, but centered around the same theme: dogs and how they make our lives better.

We’ll get a chance to see how people from different parts of the world cherish the connection they have with their furry bestie. The journey kicks off with a story that’s promising to get you to a box of tissues real fast, as it follows an 11-year-old girl suffering from traumatic seizures and her therapy pooch. The tear-jerking opener is followed by an episode about Ayham, a Syrian refugee in Germany tells the story of his unwilling separation from his Husky, Zeus, and what lengths he’s willing to go to to get his beloved pet back.


Rescues hold a special place in my heart, so I already know I’ll be weeping and smiling simultaneously while watching either of the episodes centered on saving pooch lives: one is focused on Big Apple rescues and the other follows a dog sanctuary deep in the Costa Rican rainforest. And that’s not even all- there are other episodes in the series, and I can honestly that all of them sound equally wonderful.


The few seconds of each of the stories that can be seen in the trailer are already so moving, I can’t imagine how beautiful and heartwarming the whole series is going to be. If you love dogs (as if there’s another option, really), make sure to tune in on November 16th!
