Black Dog Salvage, located at 902 13th St. S.W., specializes in reclaiming, repurposing and reselling architectural salvage. The business is the focus of “Salvage Dawgs,” which premiered on the DIY Network on Nov. 8.
The show follows Whiteside and Kulp as they race the wrecking ball to save what they can out of architecturally unique old sites. In the first episode, you see them painstakingly pull delicate pieces out of old homes — such as a giant bay window out of the Izzard House in Floyd County.
In between, there are shots of Whiteside’s black lab, Sally the Salvage Dog.
Many of the locations featured on the show will be familiar to Southwest Virginians, and if you visit the shop, employees can point out which episode select pieces came from. Both men have an eye for finding the unique pieces in their shop, but they never imagined their partnership would lead to a cable series.
