According to Variety, each of the six episodes is directed by an award-winning director, beginning with Heidi Ewing, who follows an 11-year-old with traumatic seizures and her therapy dog, Rory. In the second episode, director Amy Berg tells the story of a Syrian man named Ayham who risks everything to bring his dog Zeus across the border from war-torn Syria to Lebanon.
“Dogs don’t just make us feel loved, dogs make us feel safe,” producer Glen Zipper told Variety. “In the world we live in today, no matter how divided we are, we should take care to realize how much dogs mean to all of us, and how our bond with them can help bring us together.”
