Black Dog Salvage

Black Dog Salvage in Roanoke is an incredible, 40,000 square-foot warehouse that features a stunning variety of antiques, commercial salvage and countless other unique items.

As a marketplace, the warehouse contains original works from reclaimed materials as well as many products from a wide range of merchants and artists who rent space in the facility.

Featured on the popular television show Salvage Dawgs on the DIY Network, Black Dog Salvage has become known around the country as a leader in the remodeling industry for its outstanding work and creativity in various building, design and salvage projects.


Black Dog Salvage launched in 1999 by current owners Mike Whiteside and Robert Kulp.

Over the years, the company has expanded and become the premier salvage company in Southwest Virginia, receiving recognition from publications such as Southern Living, Virginia Living, and Garden & Gun for its beautiful work.

In 2005, Black Dog Salvage expanded to include The Memorial Bridge Marketplace, which provides a space for many local merchants and artists to offer their work.

The company gained national attention in 2012 with the launch of the Salvage Dawgs television show on DIY Network and has become a bucket list item for anyone who's a fan of home projects.

If you watch TV home shows and channels like DIY Network, there's a good chance you're familiar with the work of Black Dog Salvage from the show Salvage Dawgs.

The show launched in 2012 and it focuses on Robert & Mike's (along with the rest of the team) adventures in negotiating different pieces and properties and then restoring them to produce incredible products that are re-purposed and sold to clients that range from construction companies to high-end interior designers.

Visitors to the warehouse are often excited to find pieces that have been featured on the show.

The Stone House, which is located adjacent to the warehouse, is where many of the show's interviews are conducted.

Sally the Salvage Dog

The dog that served as the inspiration for the "Black Dog Salvage" name was Molly, a black lab who belonged to Mike Whiteside.

Though Molly passed away at the age of 13.5, she helped prepare Sally the Salvage Dog, the current black lab who serves as the welcoming committee for visitors.

Sally can often be seen around the warehouse greeting visitors, following one of the store's staff, or looking for the perfect spot for an afternoon nap.
