This programme centres on a rescue centre staffed by veterans, many of whom are sent there to help with psychological / coping issues after their service. The series follows the work they dog with the dogs, the dogs and the rescues.
Most of the animals in the shelter are wolf-dogs - not wolves. They only have about two wolves. The wolf-dogs are quite a high dog content so are very friendly and are quite sociable. They look more like huskies than wolves.
The show is well produced and the content interesting. You get to learn about the stories behind many human and dog characters and get to see how the centre is run. It is run very well and lets the dogs be dogs.
The narration is a bit basic and is aimed at people who don't understand dog behaviour. For example, they play up an injured and bored wolf-dogs aggression, even though his tail is wagging, and then act shocked when he is all friendly and happy after having his injuries treated and is released into a pen with a companion and lots of stimulation ! But considering how most shows overly heap on the drama - this one isn't too bad. It tends to stay factual for the most part.
I recommend this for anyone who likes dogs or animal rescue shows in general.
