A Dog for Life, is a brand new 13 part docu-series by South African co- director Samantha Gray, currently streaming on Netflix. The Big Issue catches up...
“A Dog for life is a show about the extraordinary, very tangible bond between people and shelter dogs,” explains Samantha Gray, show producer and owner of production company Grays Matter Films.
Over the course of the 13 episodes, the series’ presenter, Sue White, matches shelter dogs with their forever homes around Cape Town. Through a quirky doggy dating process, she helps humans to look beyond the fluff and fall in love with the one.
The dogs are a mix of scruffy, grubby, perky, goofy, beautiful, shy, boisterous, delinquent and angelic. Despite being abandoned, with a troke of luck they have found their way to their halfway houses at existing shelters – Fallen Angels, Animal Welfare Society of South Africa, Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch, Honey’s Garden, Animal Anti Cruelty League (AACL), DARG, WOOF Project and Cape of Good Hope SPCA.
