Wishing you and yours peace and love this Easter holiday and Passover We have all been through a trying year and as the country opens, we pray everybody will remember to stay safe through their travels and gatherings with friends and family. We continue to rescue unfortunate angels that once again are being abandoned and found their way to the shelters. Your love and support help us to continue saving innocent lives. Your Easter tithings mean the world to the dogs! We have included pictures of a few of our recently rescue dogs and the bewildering story of sweet “Bruno” who we recently rescued. Easter treats for your four-legged best friends! While many of you continue to share food from your table, we encourage you NOT to feed them human food from your dinner table. For their health, feed grain free, limited ingredient dry food and canned foods, such as Evengers and Against the Grain 100% straight meat with no stews. You can also steam their meat and add to their dry food. I feed a mix with apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, salmon oil, and hemp seeds. (available through our Amazon smile link) We encourage you to add immune support, probiotics that are foil wrapped or out of the refrigerator section at your health food store, for proper processing, and www.nzymes.com granules and bac- pak. You all know about healthy gut digestion by now and these are so important for your best friends as well! For treats we suggest dried duck or chicken treats. Sweet potato strips wrapped with duck are readily available as well and the dogs love them. Smart Bones and Dream Bones have vegetable-based chew sticks and bones. We no longer feed rawhide! There is formaldehyde in rawhide, a major no-no for your best friend! Keep all kids Easter candy away from your pets! You do not need a visit to the veterinarian! For the vegans out there, I can suggest visiting our store www.LBWFstore.org And picking up a copy of my book “Going Vegan” Of course, that will come after Easter, but it makes a great gift! As a special vegan Easter dinner and a real treat for yourselves, try vegan ham, vegan egg salad, a beautiful red leaf lettuce salad with broccoli, mushrooms, carrot strips, add pine-nuts, cranberries and my favorite dressing is Annie’s Goddess dressing! For dessert have a vegan carrot cake or vegan cupcakes available for you and your family and there’s many wonderful vegan ice cream alternatives! Wishing you love and peace to your family this Easter and Passover time. Your Easter donations to LBWF make a world of difference to the rescued dogs in need! With Love as always, Linda Blair for the rescued dogs of Linda Blair Worldheart Foundation DONATE Bruno's Story ‌ Bruno was recently rescued by LBWF. While taking his freedom pictures, we noticed a strange lump in his left side of his chest and took him to the vet for some answers. Nothing was defined except may be a simple large cyst. We scheduled him for his surgery to remove the cyst. Upon my return to the veterinarian to pick Bruno up, the doctor placed a 9 mm hollow point shotgun shell in my hand! I gasped! This was the unknown cyst in Bruno‘s body! Somebody had shot this magnificent and truly kind, sweet dog with absolute intent to kill! I have seen and been through everything with the dogs, but I have never rescued a dog that had been shot. It took my breath away as I am sure it does yours. I was and continue to be so angry! I work so hard rescuing dogs, and this just took my breath away! The world has many people who do not share our love of the animals and for this, we must pray harder for peace and for these criminals to pay the price for what they do to innocent lives! Animal cruelty has never stopped. Your donations support LBWF to make a difference and to continue fighting on for the animals that need our help! April is Prevention of Cruelty To Animals Month There's No Excuse For Animal Abuse! Meet Hank & Holly!

To put it simply, there’s little Dianne Scott doesn’t do. Between her successful modeling and acting career, her role as full-time wife and stepmom to three, and her devotion to advocating for pit bulls, Scott has allowed her creativity and artistry to pour out of her in far more ways than one. From performing in various film and television shows, gracing the cover of magazines, and turning her passion for pups into something tangible through her web series Neighborhood Watch, her Instagram page A Tale of 2 Pitties (which has gathered a community of 104k pit bull lovers), and her newly published children’s book series, A Tale of Two Pitties, Scott has gained an extensive amount of experience through her adventures. I was given the incredible opportunity to chat about her fondest memories, greatest advice, and future projects. Q: So you’ve done so many incredible things in your career. Before we jump into that, I’d love to know about your life before your career. How did your childhood and your upbringing inspire you to pursue a career in the industry? D: I knew when I was about eight or nine that I was a performer. I was always putting on silly skits and being ridiculous. I would force my friends and family to sit while I did something outrageous, and it was all to make them laugh—I really, really loved to make people laugh. I think it started because, I’m 5’10 now, so I was always very tall and very awkward as a child and I think I kind of leaned into my comedic ability to kind of compensate for how I didn’t feel beautiful or attractive. I was like “Okay, I’m really funny and I can make people laugh and that’s an even bigger gift,” and so I did that. I also started to write stories when I was in junior high and high school because I always loved to write. I still do and I’ll touch more on that later. So, as I got older and grew out of my ugly duckling phase, thank God, that was when my modeling career started, but I’ve always known I wanted to act. I was always performing and doing plays growing up. After high school, I went to Westmont College for a year and soon realized “Wait, this is not what I want to do,” so after that, I moved down to San Diego for a while, eventually made it to LA, and here I am now. Q: Could you tell me about your early career? What was your life like when you first moved to Los Angeles? DIANNE SCOTT, THE ACTRESS D: So I kind of hopped all over the place because I was honestly lost for a little while, which, aren’t we all in our early 20s? So when I finally made it up to LA, I had a very successful modeling career. But eventually, I thought, wait, I don’t want to do this, I need to be heard! I need to use my voice because I have a lot to say! So my first break was on the show Bones, which was my first co-star, so that was awesome. Then I zigzagged in and out of modeling and acting and was on a few other shows. I was on How I Met Your Mother, where I got to work with Neil Patrick Harris who is just so lovely and so funny. But I have to say the pinnacle of my career up until this point was, as far as working with absolute legends goes, I got to work on the movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. One day of filming, in particular, there was a scene where I was working with Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, and Jay Mohr. It was twelve, maybe thirteen hours on this scene, and, girl, when I tell you it took everything in my being and acting training to not just crack up every time Jim Carrey looked over at me and made eye contact! It was just incredible, that was an amazing experience. Something else I got to work on that was just phenomenal was Face Off. I was a series regular for a few years and that was one of my favorites because you come on set and you have no idea what’s going to happen to you. They work you into these insane creatures and it was just so fun and fed my creative need so much. Q: What was it like adjusting to the people that live and work in Hollywood? As someone who moved from a suburb to LA at a young age as well, it was definitely culture shock for me. How has that adjustment been for you? D: When I first came to LA in my early 20’s, I was just clueless. I look back and I realize how many people were taking advantage of me and lying to me, and how starstruck I was and blind to it I was. So, it’s definitely tough. You have to have really thick skin and really know who you are and fortunately, over the years I found some really good people to hold onto. I went through a lot of friends and eventually found the right people, and that’s so important to stay grounded because it’s a very tricky industry. Q: So, switching gears to another one of your passions, you’re known for being a huge advocate for pit bulls. Can you tell me when and where this passion sort of stemmed from? DIANNE SCOTT, THE ACTRESS D: Yes, so in 2012 my husband saw a picture of a dog at a shelter and just had this urge to adopt him. I saw the picture and said, “That’s a pit bull, aren’t pit bulls dangerous?” because I didn’t know anything at the time. So I was like, “Can’t they lock their jaws, and aren’t they not safe around children?” And my husband, bless his heart, just kind of laughs and says “No, that’s a stereotype. That’s a bias you probably heard through the media.” The crazy thing was when I thought about it, I didn’t even know where I had heard that, it was just a fact rummaging around in my head. So thank God we took a chance on this dog. We brought him home, named him Hurley, and fell madly in love as one does when they take a chance on a pit bull. My mind was just blown at how what I thought was true was proven to be completely wrong by this beautiful, sweet boy. So something kind of awoke inside of me and shortly after Hurley we adopted another dog and I created an Instagram for them. Hurley died when he was four of lymphoma, and at this point, my social media following had grown pretty big. I had so much support from this amazing, insanely strong community of pit bull lovers and advocates on social media, and yes, it shattered my world. But also, in losing him, I realized what one of my missions in life was supposed to be, and it was to advocate for these dogs that are so misunderstood. So in 2016, shortly after Hurley died, we rescued another pit bull mix, so we have two again. He’s continued Hurley’s legacy, and over the years my passion in this whole mission has just continued to grow. Q: How did this passion for pit bulls connect with your love of writing? When did you feel inspired to connect the two and write A Tale of Two Pitties? D: When Hurley was still alive we had cats too, and when I married my husband I became a full-time stepmom to three, so we had a very full house. I started writing these children’s books because there are so many amazing stories with my life and these animals, you know? My pit bull loves on my cat and they just have this bromance that was featured on Ellen, and it was impacting so many people around the world! I thought, “I need to write these books and make them fun and educational!” and I couldn’t stop writing. So, I have five published on Amazon right now and I have no desire to stop, so I’m going to keep writing. I mean we now have two dogs, four cats, three children—the stories are just never going to end! Q: How has it been taking on this new hat of being an author? Seeing that you’re an actor, model, and now author, I’d love to hear your opinion on how these things connect. D: Yes, they definitely balance. As an artist, there are so many things that just pour out of you in any outlet you can find, and I’m just finding more as I get older, which is so lovely. When I became a full-time stepmom I didn’t know what I was doing. I don’t have any biological children and I decided to put a hiatus on my career so I could really adjust and be the best version of myself for them and for my husband and not lose my mind. In doing that, that’s when things really started ramping up in me artistically and all these different outlets appeared. So I kept writing and I created a web series called Neighborhood Watch with my dog, and I looked back and thought, “How funny is it that I stopped acting professionally for a while, but I couldn’t stop acting?” So, I created a series with my dog as my co-star (who is a phenomenal co-star, I must say)! It just goes to show if you’re meant to do something it’s going to manifest in some way. Now that our kids are older, I’ve since gone back to acting and it’s like picking up where I left off, but even better. Q: For our readers interested in keeping an eye out for you, are there any projects you’ve recently worked on or that you’re planning to do in the future? D: Yes, I do! So I was just part of a film released last weekend called Super Bois. The film is about people with special needs and pit bulls and shining this beautiful bright light on them. I have a niece with Down syndrome and I have pit bulls, so these were just two incredibly amazing causes I’m very passionate about. Just the way that it all happened was insane and I never expected to be a part of this film. I got to play opposite Marty York, who plays ‘Yeah-Yeah’ in The Sandlot, which is one of my all-time favorite movies to this day, so being able to play opposite him was just such a cool, amazing experience. It’s just a beautiful movie, so that’s really exciting. I also just did a documentary on plant-based dog food. Now, I’m not vegan or plant-based, so when they approached me to do it I was pretty skeptical. But when we did it, all of our dogs’ digestive issues, rashes, and allergies that we’ve spent so much money on disappeared within a week of being on this food and nothing has come back since. So, this documentary was just released last week, it’s by Wild Earth dog food, and I’m really excited about it. Q: Lastly, if you had one piece of advice for our readers who are aspiring to be actors, models, or authors, what would it be? D: Yes, I have a lot of advice! For someone wanting to pursue acting, I think a huge key is knowing who you are as a person, as an artist, as a soul, and making sure you’ve done as much of the inner work as you can. Meaning, for example, I remember getting to LA in my early 20s and not really having a sense of identity. I was so easily swayed one way or the other; it was hard for me to say no, and there were just so many things that were a recipe for disaster. So now, when I look back, I realize that was another reason I didn’t have as much success early on. I think knowing who you are, taking the time to figure out who you are, and really getting strong in what you believe, what you’re going to say yes or no to, and above all, this piece of advice goes for anything you’re pursuing, never ever give up on the desire that is in your heart. They are not random, they were put there, and you can do something so special that can help an endless amount of people if you follow that. If you live your life in fear, at the end of your life you’re going to be so regretful, and you’ll never know what you’re missing out on if you don’t leave your comfort zone. You have no idea of the path and you can’t predict what’s going to happen, so you just have to trust that what you’re meant to do is going to happen and just keep going no matter what.

 Wishing Everyone A Magical Day And Week
Of
St. Patrick’s Day!
As the country starts to reopen, we want to update you on all our hard work during the pandemic on behalf of the abandoned dogs and our adoptions!
 
Sadly, when the shelters started to close because of Covid-19, more dogs needed help and we have tried to be there assisting the best we can by providing a safe haven in their times of need.­ We have rescued dogs from the shelters, the streets, and from people who sadly lost everything during the California fires, and those who lost their jobs and were no longer able to care for their dogs.
 
From the start of the pandemic, LBWF saved over 70+ dogs, and found over 100 amazing homes for our rescued LBWF dogs! They went into homes that catered to them and treated them as family members, going camping, to the beach, assisting in online zoom classes and we are all so incredibly grateful to these wonderful homes. The dogs bring so much healing, love and laughter to our lives and through the pandemic!
 
 We have continued our amazing feeding program, including the studies and application of intense herbal nutrition which Linda has been studying and applying for years. The dogs are living longer without pain pills and toxic drugs which decreases their lives by affecting a variety of their organs. We are getting closer to releasing our hard research for dogs to live longer and healthier lives!
 
Everyone has now heard how toxic some pet food can be, with some food lacking most or all nutrients through the processing of the food to give it a longer shelf life. Allergies and Cancer are just two of the main issues plaguing our pets!
 
After Linda lost her personal and founding member dogs to cancer, she has spent every day seeking change and applying it to our rescued dogs. Its working! We are the longest and largest overall, actual study on living, happy dogs, anywhere in the world. We are not a dog food company or research lab called a "Testing Sight" who do deplorable experiments to the dogs or other animals and when finished, euthanize the pets! Linda’s original animal welfare work was to fight against the companies who were performing animal experimentation! She has never stopped caring or trying to make the future lives of animals better, healthier and happier!
 
We can tell you that we feed the LBWF rescued dogs, grain free, (veterinarians are NOT trained in nutrition) as no dog runs into a grain feed to consume grains, corn or potatoes! These additives in food lead to allergies, itchy skin, and CANCER in pets!
 
We feed as clean as possible, a meat with little processing, no gravies and mix it all together. We use the company www.Nzymes.com products for digestive aid to help keep proper gut health for a healthier pet!
We add immune support, such as Turkey Tail Mushroom to their daily feeding as well!
 
No table scraps! No fancy store bought treats! They have chemicals and processing that lead to sickness! Buy dried meats, Pork Chomps and the new vegetable-based chew treats available through our online account on Amazon Smile or at a variety of stores.
We will continue to give you guidance through our work and will happily answer any questions you have. You can email us through the foundation by visiting www.LindaBlairWorldheart.org
 
Here are a few of our rescued dogs available for adoption or recently adopted wishing you a Magical St. Patrick's Day and do not forget you can show your support through fun clothing, coffee mugs, caps, masks and more, by visiting our NEW ONLINE STORE for the rescued dogs! www.LBWFstore.org 
We even have Linda's autographed items available now as well! Pick up her autographed, GOING VEGAN! book for your own health journey!
 
Your donations and support helps us to continue rescuing and rehoming the dogs in need!
 
Wishing you peace, safety, & good health for you and your pets!
That is our mission!
Love,
Linda, the LBWF Team & all the rescued LBWF dogs!

Bash Dibra is a big, ebullient man with a warm smile, a gentle manner, and a lifelong affinity for dogs. When he was only three years old and fled with his family from Albania to a refugee camp in Yugoslavia, he made friends with the attack dogs that guarded the compound. Later, as the family traveled through Europe, Bash was able to work with master dog trainers, and he continued his work when he came to the United States. Then came the opportunity to raise and train a wolf, and through this experience Bash developed his unique methods of dog training.

Bash & Friends.jpgAs author of two best-selling books on responsible pet ownership, training and the proper treatment of animals in the entertainment industry, Bash Dibra sets the industry standard of service to celebrities and their pets as well as to pets who are celebrities in their own right. Mr. Dibra has trained the pets of countless celebrities, including Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathleen Turner, Mariah Carey, Joan Rivers, Kim Bassinger and Alec Baldwin. His own pets are celebrities themselves, featured in motion pictures, television commercials and print ads.

Bash has appeared on countless TV shows promoting responsible pet ownership, and he works diligently behind the scenes for animal welfare and to promote animals in service to mankind. Bash credits his incredible way with dogs to his beloved wolf, Mariah, who taught him so much, and who was the official symbol of the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.

What is Dinovite for Dogs?  Also formulated for Cats & horses as well

 
Dinovite for Dogs is a nutritional supplement made with whole food ingredients that contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes, direct fed microbials and fatty acids that can be missing from your dog’s diet. These can help support the immune system, digestive function, healthy skin and a shiny coat!

Does your dog itch, scratch, shed, or stink like crazy? Have you tried creams, shots, antibiotics, steroids and lotions? Are you tired of spending, spending and spending at the vet's? Nothing works!

Maybe it's not medical?
It could be a nutritional deficiency. Dogs need good nutrition so their bodies can function properly.
Dog food is cooked at such a high temperature and intense pressure that many nutrients are destroyed. Your dog eats this nutrient-depleted food his whole life. When fed in this manner he can develop horrible signs of nutritional deficiency.
Horrible signs like:
  • Terrible itching
  • Sores and lesions
  • Crusty skin
  • Bad odor
  • Excessive shedding

Any of these can be signs of a nutritional deficiency. If this describes your dog, the nutrients in our https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.dinovite.com/dinovite-products&source=gmail&ust=1592306873513000&usg=AFQjCNH8BMQ4gSNeaqOU8AXLtAjRna5bvw">Dinovite supplements can help support good body function.

Two Companies from Bend Oregon Team up for the 2021 Stage Stop Sled Dog Race
 
Bend, OR – January 19, 2021 – Two local companies from Bend, OR are joining forces for the highly anticipated 2021 Stage Stop Sled Dog Race, which is set to kick off on January 29th in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Alpine Outfitters, makers of handcrafted and high-quality gear for working and active dogs, will be sponsoring Mount Bachelor’s Oregon Trail of Dreams sled dog team by providing them with gear for the upcoming race.
 
Beginning in Jackson, WY this premier “stage” format sled dog race is hosted by the area’s local communities. Teams race on public lands of the Bridger-Teton, Shoshone, & Caribou-Targhee National Forests, competing for $165,000 in prize money & the elusive title of “Stage Stop Champion.” The Pedigree® Stage Stop Race, now in its 26th year, intends to move forward following all federal, state, and local COVID-19 public health guidelines.

"Headquartered and manufactured in Bend, OR, Alpine Outfitters is a long-time supporter of Oregon Trail of Dreams," states Bruce Stegmaier, Owner of Alpine Outfitters, “Our gear and equipment is great for all dog-powered outdoor activities and adventures, including mushing with working sled dogs.  All of our products are tested locally and around the world with both a dog and person’s comfort and safety in mind, as well as to maximize performance and durability.”
 
Oregon Trail of Dreams is best known for giving their customers a wonderful experience providing sled dog tours at Mt. Bachelor. Founded by the well-known and admired American dog musher, Rachael Scdoris, and her dad, Jerry Scdoris; Oregon Trails of Dreams consists of a professional team of guides that have more than 100 years of combined experience to provide guests with an unforgettable, fun and safe experience. In 2006, Rachael became the first legally blind person to complete the 1,049+ mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race across the U.S. state of Alaska. She is well known in the sled dog world and a local community of Bend celebrity.
 
“My father and I are unable to participate in this year’s Stage Stop Race due to a few unforeseen circumstances. However, we are thrilled to announce that Rafael Nelson, our dear friend and a trusted employee at Trail of Dreams, will be taking on the race with our dogs!” expresses Rachael Scdoris.
 
Rafael is a charismatic 29-year old man who lives in Bend Oregon. He’s a 2nd year musher and has a real passion and talent for driving sled dogs. Rafael guides rafting trips on the Rogue River in the summer and sledding trips at Mt. Bachelor in the winter. Four years ago, he learned how to run dogs at the Scdoris kennel in Oregon. The race team has been having great training runs with ATVs through the Oregon Badlands Wilderness Area this year. Jerry, Rachael’s father, will be accompanying Rafael to the start of the race and will be his support person throughout the seven-day event.
 
Rafael says, “I’m excited to get my team out on the beautiful Wyoming trails and see what they can do. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with some of the amazing dog people I met last year and seeing some new faces.”
 
“Bend, Oregon is such a beautiful destination and we are so proud to be part of this unique and supportive community,” says Bruce from Alpine Outfitters, “We look forward to sponsoring the incredible Oregon Trail of Dreams team for this very exciting event. The race is on!”

New York, NY - The AKC Museum of the Dog is excited to announce “Virtual Night with the Museum,” a livestream virtual gala honoring the Museum’s longtime friend, supporter and board member Ronald H. Menaker on Friday, February 12 between 8pm -9pm.

For almost three decades, the Theatre Benefit for the Museum has been Menaker’s passion project and the Museum hopes to continue the tradition virtually with a night of celebrating and showcasing our love of dogs and the Museum’s impact on the community.

Mr. Menaker first served on the AKC Board from 1996 to 1998. Elected again in 2000, he became Vice Chairman in 2001 and served as Chairman since March 2002 until April 2019. He has been actively involved in the sport of purebred dogs for more than 40 years and has contributed to it greatly through his work with fundraising, particularly hosting the annual Theater Benefit.

The Theater Benefit has fundraised thousands of dollars for AKC affiliates such as the Humane Fund and now more recently, the AKC Museum of the Dog. In addition to hosting the Theater Benefit, Ron has also donated several pieces of artwork to the Museum, including At the Garden Gate by Matilda Lotz, Portrait of Bea Godsol by John Dwight and The Intruder by Arthur Wardle.

Open to the general public, the virtual gala will include remarks from Museum Executive Director Alan Fausel, testimonials from community members on the Museum’s impact and a silent auction. Individuals also can become an Event Sponsor. With a gift of $1,000 or more, participants can become a Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum Level Sponsor. Sponsors at levels Silver and above will receive a medallion on our Capital Campaign Wall. Supporters at all sponsor levels will receive recognition on the MOD Donor Wall in the Museum, in pre- and post- show content, and a dedicated space on our giving center within the sponsor level and mentions throughout the live event.

In addition to sponsorship, guests will also be able to bid in a live auction during the event for a chance to take home fabulous prizes in support of the Museum. Those who prefer to give directly can do so through the Museumofthedog.org website on the Night with the Museum Fundraising page.

Parent club members are encouraged to participate in the livestream event through Champions for Our Cause, a competition open to AKC clubs encouraging giving together as a team. The highest total amongst club teams will earn recognition on our AKC Clubs Wall of Fame. This dedicated space in the Museum will feature a plaque with the club’s name on it, to honor the club’s legacy and lasting support of the Museum.

“At the Museum of the Dog, we want to take this opportunity to honor Ron Menaker as being an integral part of the museum’s development and sustained success,” said Alan Fausel, Executive Director of the Museum. “He has been the glue that has held our institution together, and we wish to follow his example as we work towards a brighter and stronger 2021 for all museum visitors.”

More information on the series and the contestants can be found below. On the surface, this is a global unscripted series that celebrates the unrivaled bond between dogs and their human companions, hosted by the talented and charismatic Olympic gold-medalist Lindsey Vonn and her canine co-host Lucy. In reality though, this series is so much more than that.

 

ABOUT THE TEAMS

Brian Calvert & Dixie (Camby, IN) – Dixie is a 5-year-old Old Bluetick Coonhound. She’s a therapy dog for veterans and a deer tracking dog.

Half of the week, Brian drives semi-trucks while taking Dixie to public appearances and events for the rest of the week. Both Brian and Dixie have dedicated their lives to helping Veterans, kids, and anyone who might need a smile. Brian and Dixie have a custom Jeep Wrangler with Dixie’s signature logo on it. They drive around in the Jeep participating in parades, escorting charity motorcycle rides, and escorting veterans’ funerals.

Chelsey played college volleyball at UC Santa Barbara and is a yoga instructor. Chelsey found Gryffin at just seven weeks old about seven years ago, on her way home from a trip, and Gryffin hasn’t left her side since. They do everything together. Chelsey even brings her to work, teaching her yoga classes with Gryffin by her side!

Chisum credits Kepo for keeping him grounded after a stressful day at the fire station.

Donna fell in love with Charlie’s adorable face from a photo she saw online – proving there is such a thing as love at first sight.

Kioni “Kentucky” Russell Gallahue & Derby (San Diego, CA) – Kentucky got Derby from a loving family that realized that they couldn’t take care of him and needed to re-home him. Kentucky took him in, and they have been best friends ever since. Once living with Kentucky, Derby discovered a whole new world, and Kentucky helped give Derby the confidence to enjoy and explore it. Derby came into Kentucky’s life at a low point, and he helped get Kentucky through the hard times and start a new life in San Diego. Together they are inseparable. They love to surf, ride motorcycles, and find new, fun, crazy activities together.

 

Linh Iacona & Chance (Brooklyn, NY) – After suddenly losing Linh’s first dog, a senior rescue, she searched on Petfinder and found Chance (who at the time was called Griff). She drove 8 hours that day to pick him up at his foster home. At only six weeks old, he was found homeless roaming the streets of Kentucky, then transported to Pennsylvania to be fostered. She adopted Chance at three and a half months old, and now he’s living his best life in Brooklyn.

 

Lucy Riles & Duchess (Woodland Hills, CA) – Duchess is an 8-year-old Black Lab that loves tennis balls and playing fetch with Lucy, a Stay-at-Home Mom of four kids, two dogs and wife to one husband. Duchess and Lucy’s bond began when Duchess was four months old. With a toddler and baby already in tow, Lucy decided to adopt Duchess from Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue. But as the years went on, it’s pretty clear that Duchess was the one doing the rescuing all along. The unconditional love, security, companionship and emotional support Duchess has provided Lucy and her kids has gotten their family through some of life’s most devastating losses and obstacles. Not only has Duchess saved the lives and hearts of Lucy and her family, but Duchess is also about to win over your hearts as well! This duo may be the oldest female team on The Pack and viewed as a couple of underdogs...but never underestimate the inner strength of a mom and her lab. Lucy and Duchess are here to prove you CAN teach an old dog (and old broad) new tricks!

 

Mark LeBlanc & Ace (Salt Lake City, UT) – Mark is a 31-year-old mechanical engineer and professional photographer with a furry best friend named Ace, a 10-year-old Border Collie.

Living in Salt Lake City, Utah, they are always active outdoors doing things like rock climbing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, and trail running. At six months old, Ace was catching frisbees 30 yards away, and at ten years old, a ten-mile trail run is simply a warm-up. Together, Mark and Ace have an unbreakable bond and a thrill for adventure.

 

Mitra Najibeh Yosri & Bozley (Los Angeles, CA) – Nine years ago, Mitra Yosri met Bozley, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Bozley escorted Mitra when she made the life-changing decision to move from Utah to Los Angeles, and they do absolutely everything together. With the unconditional love and companionship that Bozley has always provided her, Mitra has been able to take risks and pursue her dreams. Today, Mitra and Bozley enjoy cuddling and hiking through the hills of Eagle Rock and sharing food. Mitra is most happy at home with Bozley and her two cats. Bozley is happiest trying to catch flies and never leaving Mitra’s side.

 

Vania Zuniga & Jax (Long Beach, CA) – Jax is a goofy three-year-old Golden Retriever who loves to be attached to Vania’s hip (unless there is a squirrel around). This pair loves to spend their time soaking up the sun at the beach. Jax loves to put a smile on anyone’s face, but be careful because his dog hair is contagious!

 

ABOUT THE SHOW

At stake is a life-changing monetary prize for the winning duo ($500,000) and the animal charity of their choice ($250,000). Additionally, THE PACK donated $250,000 during filming to multiple charities and animal rescue organizations in each country, helping to pay it forward to dogs and those who love them around the world. To win the monetary prize for themselves and their charity, the teams depended on their understanding of one another’s strengths and weaknesses In order to prove to have the strongest bond in the pack. In each locale, the human and dog duos faced fun and exciting challenges, designed in concert with a team of accredited veterinarians and certified dog experts that also accompanied the group on their exciting journey, making sure it was a positive and safe experience for everyone. 

 

The competitors range from veterans to mothers to celebrity dog hairstylists – and their precious pups range from young to old, nervous to confident and comforting to competitive. Teams began in their journeys in their home states of Indiana, Oklahoma, New York, California and beyond – and acclimated to new climates, countries, altitudes and adventures along the way.

 

All in, the series emphasizes the incredible relationships humans and dogs are able to form throughout life’s hurdles, and the passion true dog lovers possess, as seen by the donations of hard-earned funds to charities that exist in support of these animals.
