CBS has announced the 12 teams of dogs and owners set to compete for a $250,000 cash prize and an honorary title on the summer reality offering "Greatest American Dog."
Set to premiere on Thursday, July 10, "GAD" pits 12 teams of dogs and their owners against each other in canine gladiatorial combat under the watchful eye of zoologist/host Jarod Miller and judges Wendy Diamond, Allan Reznick and Victoria Stilwell.
The dogs range from pure-bred pageant dogs to beloved pups with a less clear pedigree and only the most informal of prior instruction.
