WASHINGTON, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nat Geo Mundo presents El Lider de la Manada, the first series ever to air in the U.S. featuring famed Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan speaking in his native Spanish language. In this new series, Cesar travels half way around the globe to Spain where, each year, 100,000 dogs are left abandoned, with nearly 50 put to sleep every day. Working to nurture and revitalize abandoned dogs while also finding them a permanent home, the show's premise is a dream for Cesar as he is able to exert his passion for the adoption of dogs and educate others on the canine recovery process.
"It has long been a dream of mine, and a promise that I'd made to my mother years ago, to host a show in my native Spanish language," shared Cesar Millan. "The fact that I have been able to travel the world and change the lives of both people and their pets is truly an accomplishment and one that I share with all of my fans across the globe."
During each of the 10 one-hour episodes, starting Tuesday, October 2nd at 9PM ET/PT, Cesar works with three pet adoption candidates and one dog. These canines have serious behavioral problems in dire need of rehabilitation on order to make them fit for adoption. Cesar works with each dog, applying his know-how and expertise to find the perfect match between the dogs and their potential owners. But working with the dogs is only step one – next is working with the owners, finding out who would be the best "Leader of the Pack." With candidates ranging from those with their own chaotic home lives to those with certain physical or emotional conditions or even celebrities with unique personalities, they are all in need of discipline and guidance, much like those of their potential pets!
The greatest challenge is of course matching the owner to the dog – the animals carry the scars of a difficult and cruel past, but Cesar Millan knows best how to choose the perfect person to raise the dog. Join Nat Geo Mundo and travel with Cesar as he works with these canines molding them to be the perfect additions to their new adopted families.
