Each episode tells the story of one shelter dog's quest to find the perfect family. Turning the tables on humans who always pick their pets, the show has the dogs deciding where and with whom they live (with a little help from a panel of pet experts!). The dog will spend 24 hours in each of 3 homes, playing and participating in various activities, ultimately deciding which family to call its own.
Performer/writer Dorothea Coelho grew up in Palo Alto, Calif. and Boston. She began performing at the age of eight in Oliver Twist and quickly moved on to soccer, which she felt was much cooler at recess. Throughout high school, she juggled theater and sports. After attending Emerson College in Boston, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue comedy and acting.
Dorothea's stand-up comedy perfomances have included The Toyota Comedy Festival in New York and the Iceland Comedy Festival, The Improv at Harrah's in Las Vegas and local Los Angeles clubs such as The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Ice House and The Largo Show. As well as performing, she produced the comedy show Velveeta Underground featured at The HBO Workspace and LunaPark.
Dorothea has hosted several shows including Players, the celebrity show on the all video game network G-4, and VH1's Every Night. Her latest show, Animal Planet's Who Gets The Dog is the perfect combination of skill set for Dorothea. She has rescued her own dog, Brody, a Border Collie/Swiss Mountain Dog mix, and assisted in many other dog rescues, finding homes and new loving owners. The show affords her the opportunity to help save dogs and bring people together with their new pets.
