The story of Swamp Dog is a sweet and simple one. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, she was found on an old gravel road between a bayou and a sugarcane field. Her rescuer, a good man from the swamp, took her home and made her whole again. He named her Shiloh, unaware of the journey he would take with her, a journey from her humble beginnings as his little stray hound of questionable heritage and pedigree into the world of Swamp Dog.

J.T. is pictured with the real swamp dog, Shiloh.
