Welcome to Jenkins, NC—home of the Klein’s K-9s Service Dog training facility, pro-rescue-pet volunteers, and 3 sexy celebrities about to meet their match.
“Racing Hearts”—Stock car legend, Tom “Torque” Tyler, faces a bleak future following a traumatic head injury and seizures. Service dog trainer, Meg Klein, arrives with a tiny but talented seizure response dog. She's determined to drag her high-school crush from his self-imposed solitude. Will the paparazzi ruin Meg's best-laid plans?
“8 Hounds a-Howling”—Celebrity photographer “Jax” Jackson volunteers to shoot the Klein’s K-9s’ dog-themed “12 Days of Christmas” fundraising calendar. His hidden agenda: Convince past love and calendar coordinator Amy Walters to give him a second chance. But he never anticipates dodging dive-bombing birds, tackling runaway pigs, and handling 78 dogs who'd rather play than pose.
“Nothing But a Hound Dog”—After a night of raucous partying, country music star Ryan "Rowdy" Gates is sentenced to community service at the Jenkins Animal Shelter. To his surprise, he bonds with the caring shelter workers and falls for an abandoned Basset Hound puppy. Shelter director Cindi Landon offers Ryan something he's never had—a home, a family, and unconditional love.
