Dogs Unleashed in HBO Documentary
Enjoy a sneak peek of "One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss & Betrayal," premiering June 18
HBO Documentary Film’s "One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss & Betrayal" is a compelling and unvarnished portrait of our complex relationship to dogs.
We’re a country of dog lovers, yet some 1.75 million homeless canines are euthanized every year.
"One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss & Betrayal" reveals the sobering realities behind America’s obsession with dogs. It uses startling images to show not only how far some dog lovers will go for their pets but also how far the nation has to go before it treats all dogs humanely.
Americans have conducted a long love affair with canines, but amidst all the pampering are unpleasant truths about some elements of dog ownership, care, and commerce—not to mention the daunting odds that face millions of shelter animals.
"One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss & Betrayal" will premiere exclusively on HBO on Monday, June 18 at 9:00 p.m. EST/PST to kick off the new seven-week summer documentary series. Watch the trailer here.
