Netflix Opens Up Casting Call for Second Season of ‘Dogs’

The first season had us crying tears of joy and tears of sorrow. And now, Netflix’s Dogs is back for round two, and looking to potentially share your dog’s tale.

The documentary series, which shares the unconditional bond humans have with dogs, has put out the feelers for the second season.

The team is asking dog parents to share what makes their four-legged friend remarkable on social media. People can take to Twitter or Instagram, and use the hashtag #netflixdogstory or tagging @NetflixDogs for their chance to be featured.

Monday is Nessie's "gotcha day" and so in addition to spoiling her rotten, I wanted to also take the opportunity to reflect on the last year and the lessons Nessie has taught our family. When we welcomed Nessie into our family, we saw a frightened, "broken" pup that needed rescue and while this was true to some extent, I would later be amazed by Nessie's resilience. Even when life doesn't serve you your idea of "perfect", there is still joy and happiness to be found. Imperfect can be special…and ironically perfect in its own way. In every single challenge, there is an opportunity to learn and grow. Seek out these opportunities. Look for the challenges. Go to your local shelter and ask for the oldest, the sickest, the one that's been there the longest, the "broken" one…and open your mind and your heart to loving and caring for these lovely souls and to receiving the invaluable love and loyalty they have to share. We often receive messages of thanks or telling us how great it is that we adopted Nessie and how lucky she is and while it may sound cliche, the truth is, WE are the lucky ones. Nessie is a rare gem and I am thankful for every day we have with her. I also want to thank all of YOU. All of you that have followed Nessie's journey this past year and shown the love and those of you that have shared her story with others have helped to raise awareness for pups like Nessie and helped to open minds and for this I am incredibly grateful 💜 #nessiemcnubbins #bestlife .#netflixdogstory . . #dogsofinstagram #nubs #nublove #instagood #pupflix #doglover #2leggeddog #rescuedog #thedodo #rescuepetsofinstagram #chihuahuasofinstagram #chihuahua #handicappedpets #cute #buzzfeedanimals #dogsofinstaworld #twoleggeddog #specialneedsdog #dogstagram #instadog #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsofinstagram #Chihuahualove #nublife #animalplanet #love #dodooftheday

Hey @netflixdogs this is Khaos, the dog that changed everything. I don't have some crazy rescue story to tell you. I didn't pull him off death row or find him lost, alone, and emancipated on the streets. In fact, I didn't rescue him at all. If anyone was rescued, it was me. Khaos came into my life after a split decision. I already had two dogs, I wasn't going to bring a 3rd into the mix. I didn't need another dog. Well, at the time, I didn't think I did anyway. In the span of 30 minutes though I became a 3 dog household and all of a sudden, I had a little ball of pure velociraptor in my house. Getting him wasn't exciting. In fact, it was a simple process. I grabbed cash, I handed it over, and bam, my life changed forever even though I didn't know it at the time. As Khaos grew, I slowly realized that I put myself in a whole different ball game with him. He's not your typical pet dog. He needs to be worked. Every day. So at 14 weeks old, we started nose work. That's now Khaos' favorite thing in the world. He loves to work and his love for work is what set me on my current path. The more I worked Khaos, the more into the working dog world I got and the further into this world I ventured, the more my life changed. Through this Instagram, I've been able to connect with some amazing companies like my all time favorite company with the best message ever, @officialcreture. I've met some awesome people like @raikouandsmiley and @barndogbentley. I even got an internship thanks to Khaos and this Instagram. But most importantly, Khaos showed me what my true passion is and last year, I started pursuing that passion. Khaos changed everything. He's helped open doors I didn't even know existed. He pushes me every day to do better and be better. He keeps me on track toward my future. With him, I never know what tomorrow will bring. Not every day is a great day. Some days I feel like quitting but all I have to do is load Khaos up and get to work and remember what I'm working toward and why. (More in the comments)
