A fab TV show and nowhere near the cheesiest thing to come from Canada!
5 April 2001 | by (Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire) – See all my reviews

I grew up with this TV show and I thought it was great, London the dog helping people just when they needed it and then refusing their offer of a home and moving on to help someone else, for me as a child it was a tear jerker, but London was an undeniably cute German Shepherd and whatever anyone else reckons I think it's a really cool show and I really enjoyed it.

Notable guest stars who appeared in the show include Al Waxman and DeForest Kelley who was best known for playing Dr "Bones" McCoy in Star Trek.
