A Dating Show for Owners and Dogs?

Finding the right dog is not as simple as one might think! Seth Casteel, the award-winning photographer and “Underwater Dogs” author, hosts a new show, “Finding Fido” that matches the right kind of rescue dog with the right owner.

Seth explains to The Doctors that often people pick a dog based on a breed they might like or a type of dog they see with other people, but his new show specifically matches each dog with each owner making sure that the pairing is good for both the person and the pet.

“[‘Finding Fido’] is showing people how many awesome rescue dogs are out there waiting to come home with you. A lot of folks still don’t know that,” he says, explaining that on an episode the owner has 3 “dates” with 3 different dogs that might be a good match with many of the pairings made to help people with their ongoing medical issues.

Todd, who appears on an upcoming episode of “Finding Fido,” wanted to find the right dog that could help him with his multiple sclerosis. He was paired with the adorable and helpful Bebe, who has changed his life for the better.

“Bebe gets me out [of the house], helps me interact with the neighborhood, see people I haven’t seen in a while,” he says. “And helps me psychically and emotionally.”

Before you decide to get a dog, Seth recommends answering these questions:

  • Are you ready to have a dog?
  • What’s my home like? 
  • What’s my lifestyle like? 
  • What’s my schedule like? 
  • How much time do I have to devote a dog?
