“Salvage Dawgs” chronicles the adventures and creativity of the Black Dog Salvage team – a Virginia-based architectural salvage business. Long time do-it-yourself fans and newcomers alike can enjoy salvage owners Robert Kulp and Mike Whiteside as they display their polar opposite personalities, making for a show filled with humor and suspense. While both share a passion for historical preservation, Robert is the self-proclaimed “bottom line guy” who focuses on the re-sale value. Mike is the “go big, go fast, go hard” guy who finds amusement in the unusual and engineers often hair-brained solutions for getting materials out of structures unharmed.
