October 26, 2008 8:40 PM

Sony Pictures Television’s “Judge David Young” is going to the dogs on Fridays during November sweeps.

Starting Friday, “Young” will air special pet-themed episodes under the banner of “Thank Dog It’s Friday!” The shows will feature cases involving animals, along with segments about how to get pet-rearing information from the Humane Society of the United States, which is collaborating with the syndicated strip.

“Our partnership with the HSUS is an exciting opportunity to raise awareness of proper animal care on a national level,” executive producer Rich Goldman said. “Animal protection and pet owners’ rights are great causes that Judge David Young holds close to his heart.”

Some of the cases sniffed out for the pet episodes include a dog owner who is sued when his pit bull attacks a goat and a client claiming negligence against her dog’s groomer.

“As a long-serving board member of my local Miami-Dade Humane Society, I feel truly honored to be working with the HSUS,” Judge Young said. “I am passionate about proper treatment for animals and I’m sure that audiences will be able to see as much when they tune in to the pet-centric episodes that we taped for ‘Thank Dog It’s Friday!’”

Judge Young lives in Miami with his partner of 12 years, Judge Scott Bernstein, and Maggie, his cairn terrier-poodle mix.
