Salvage Dawgs is a popular show which started back on Nov 8, 2012. Salvage Dawgs is a show based on a company called Black Dog Salvage. The company bids on any architectural structure that is about to be demolished.

They salvage anything useful or of anything with historical or architectural significance from the condemned building. The whole crew of Black Dog Salvage is Salvage Dawgs cast. The show is about the company doing its job, tackling the problems faced while doing their job. The owners of the structure have an emotional attachment with the structure, and some parts are harder to salvage without damaging them or other components.

The owners of the company Robert Kulp and Mike Whiteside, have a keen eye for any architectural elements and historical artifacts. Black Dog Salvage started in 1999. Let us go a bit more into detail about Salvage Dawgs cast, bio, and net worth.
