The six-part series will follow six canines from around the world — Syria, Japan, Costa Rica, Italy, and the United States — and show the unconditional love they have for their owners. And vice-versa. So, what type of stories can viewers expect? 

According to Netflix, the docuseries will "explore the abiding emotional bonds that form between dogs and their caregivers, no matter the circumstances." As expected, dog-lovers are already getting their tissues ready. "This is a series made for me, but I can’t watch it because I started crying just watching the promo. Then my dog came to see what was wrong, and I started sobbing," one Netflix subscriber tweeted. Another added, "This week has been so so so hard but omg look at this Netflix series just about very good dogs." 

Here's an episode-by-episode breakdown of the show, set for premiere on Nov. 16.
