If you haven’t been watching Dog’s Day Out, you’ve been missing something really incredible!
In each episode, Rocky Kanaka takes a shelter dog out to spend one day doing some of the things they love to do most, and showing people that these dogs have so much to offer a new family. In this episode, Rocky took out Wade, an adorable Frenchie at Marley’s Mutts who is being treated for Valley Fever, and has a long road to recovery ahead. When Wade’s former family found out that he was sick, they abandoned him when he needed them most, but the people at Marley’s Mutts are dedicated to getting him well.
In a shelter environment, many people would just see a sick Frenchie and pass him by, but on his day with Rocky, he got a chance to really stand out. In the video we see that Wade loves toys, loves playing with other dogs, and doesn’t let anything stop him from having a good time!
What’s really cool about Wade’s day out is that you helped make it happen!
