There’s one thing we can all agree on: There aren’t enough heartwarming shows about dogs out there. Thankfully, Disney+ is set to fix this pressing issue with a new original.
This isn’t your average, cutesy dog-centric show, however. In fact, Pick of the Litter comes with high stakes for both the puppies and their human companions.
Pick of the Litter released on December 20th. Disney+ releases episodes weekly, so tune in week after week to see how the puppies fare on their mission.
Pick of the Litter is inspired by the 2018 documentary of the same name. This time, we follow a new set of puppies as they train to become guide dogs for people with visual impairments.
As the voiceover in the trailer announces, “It takes a very special, confident dog to be able to do this job.” Consequently, it’s very likely that not all of the doggos featured will get to work as a guide dog once their training is complete.
Save your tears for the show, OK? It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there.
The new Disney+ series stars six adorable puppies named are Paco, Pacino, Tulane, Raffi, Amara, and Tartan.
Human companions are featured as the show follows these good boys and girls over two years of training to fulfill their career goals.
Yes. Have you read the premise? It’s a show about puppies training to become guide dogs. And we anticipate an emotional roller coaster.
If you need another reason to tune in, the original documentary this show is based on was received with critical acclaim. It currently earns a 97% Rotten Tomatoes score, with critics praising it as heartfelt, beautiful and full of joy.
There’s no reason why the series shouldn’t follow into the movie’s footsteps.
Furthermore, we need more uplifting content during these cynical times. Disney+ offers a vast selection of family-oriented content, including memorable family movies and excellent kids’ programming. We’re sure Pick of the Litter will fit right in.
Finally, the story is engaging and inspiring. There’s plenty of fluffiness, but these dogs are basically competing to potentially make someone’s life better.
Only the best of the litter will go on to work as guide dogs, and the dedicated individuals who train them will give everything it takes to help the doggos reach their full potential.
Aren’t convinced? Just try to watch this trailer without leaping from your seat.
