Meet Luther!

Luther was surrendered to a shelter when he was only 3 months old because he wasn't quite "perfect." It's not known whether his "defect" came as a result of an injury or he was born this way. Regardless of the origin, his handicap doesn't seem to slow him down one bit nor stop him from living life to the fullest.

Luther's back legs don't seem to get their signals quite right. They act as if they were "joined" together. Luther can walk, run, go up and down steps, jump up, do just about anything any "normal" dog can do. But when he does these things, he looks more like a "bunny" than a dog because both legs act as a "team." He has had a full neurological evaluation and testing. His condition is stable at this point and has not changed in over 2 months. If anything, he continues to get stronger every day.

Luther is otherwise a perfectly healthy and normal puppy. He is very sweet and affectionate, loves to cuddle up and be with his human friends. We believe he will do best in a home without other pets and with children who are older as he is already quite strong and being a puppy will jump up.

Luther is currently being cared for by Faith's Hope in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. They focus on some of the more difficult rescues, primarily dogs that have significant medical problems.

Meet Lacey!

Lacey is a gorgeous 5 year old sheltie girl with a heart of gold. She adores people and stays right by the side of those she loves. She is one of the office dogs at Hearts United for Animals and has taken on the job of official greeter when guests come to visit.

She is so congenial and happy. She does a wonderful job of making everyone feel welcome and at home with her beautiful smile and friendly eyes.

Lacey is currently being cared for through Hearts United for Animals, a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care.

Meet Bella!

Bella is a beautiful 1-year-old basset hound with lots of energy and lots of love. She is as sweet as she is lovely. Bella is sure to melt your heart.

Bella loves to wrestle with people on the floor and run and play with other dogs. She has lots of energy and would do great in a home with kids or other dogs. Her playful nature makes her a joy to have around.

Bella may have a lot of energy, but she calms down quite easily. This girl loves to curl up in your lap and get lots of ear and belly rubs. She is sure to always get her afternoon nap and is careful to take her nap near you. (Should you decide to give out some spontaneous belly rubs.) At night, Bella will cuddle close on the bed. And if that’s not your cup of tea, she is just as happy with a soft blanket or a doggie bed on the floor.

Bella was a stray, so she is still learning basic commands. She is not quite house-trained, yet, but she is doing very well. Bella is a very smart dog and she is eager to please. Obedience is not a problem with her.

If you’re looking for a young basset with lots of energy and lots of love to give, Bella is the girl for you.

We found Bella currently being cared for by Guardian Angel Basset Rescue in Indiana and Illinois. For more information about Bella, click here!

Meet Charlie!

Charlie is a charming young brittany boy who was turned into the humane society for basically "being a puppy". Yes, he does have a high activity level, and may get into a little bit of mischief (given the chance), but none of his behaviors are outside the realm of a normal brittany puppy. In fact, his foster home thinks he might have the edge on most puppies with his good looks and silly personality.

He is a "conversationalist" - he likes to talk to you to get your attention. He is not a barker, but makes fun little vocalizations that add to his charm.

Charlie loves to play with other dogs, and would really like a playmate. He is good with kids and other animals. He needs some socialization and work on obedience, but is very eager to please. He would make a great addition to a family/home who has some time to spend giving him the groundwork he'll need to be an awesome adult dog.

We found Charlie through American Brittany Rescue and he is being fostered in Utah. For more information on Charlie, click here!

Meet Kodi!

Kodi is a beautiful Siberian Husky who needs to find a good home. He is 12 yrs old, 60 lbs, healthy, and current on all his shots. Kodi would make a wonderful companion, has a calm disposition, and loves his walks.

He is house-trained and used to being able to go inside and outside as he chooses. Kodi does well with other dogs, but not cats or birds. He is very loveable.

We met Kodi through Homes for Huskies in Eagle River, Alaska. The Homes for Huskies (HFH) mission is to assist others with the placement of huskies in loving, stable homes specially suited for these unique dogs. In the process, HFH provides advice that incorporates ideals for good animal ownership and care.

Meet Brando!

Brando is an awesome boy that's no trouble at all !!! He loves to play and if you tell him to find his ball he will look all day.

He's house trained, knows how to sit and shake hands just to name a few. He needs a fenced yard, and no young children. He also needs some extra time to get to know a few men. Some he takes up with right away, others...well they need to make an effort.

Brando will make some lucky family a wonderful friend and family member. He is 8 or 9 years old, but he acts like a puppy.

We met Brando currently being cared for by East Kentucky Rescue. They are a small rescue group run out of a home. They believe very strongly in responsible pet ownership and strive to give our friends a loving, caring and responsible home. Proper screening of each adopter's application helps ensure that their friends will be given the quality of life that he/she needs. They are strictly non profit and do not support PUPPY MILLS or BACKYARD BREEDERS. Their love for animals is the motivating force behind their mission.

Meet Mr. Murphy!

Now, how could anyone resist such an adorable face? Mr. Murphy was picked up with his brother by a nice couple while they were on vacation. They had been hanging around the park for a couple of weeks. So they wouldn't get hit on the road, the couple took us to the local dog pound only to find out it was a barn with cages where we would be held for 72 hours for our owners to come claim us.

They are currently in a foster home learning everything they need to know to be great companion dogs. He's a little shy, and should not go to a home with children.

Mr. Murphy is listed with Buckeye Border Collie Rescue in Ohio. They are a non-profit organization that is run by volunteers. They are committed to the welfare of Border Collies in need in the Ohio area. The Border Collies are fostered in homes throughout the state of Ohio. The main co-ordination of the rescue group is conducted in Tiffin in northwest Ohio.

For more information about Mr. Murphy, click here!

Meet Freckles!

Freckles is a 2.5 year old pointer mix and 35 pounds of energy and love. She will require an active lifestyle, perhaps as an agility, frisbee, or running companion. Freckles is currently in obedience training and is responding with the routine.

She is quite trainable, but needs time to settle down around new surroundings, good with other dogs, but will chase cats and other animals. Freckles would work best in a family (whatever size) with a fenced yard, where she could run and play frequently. She is very affectionate and rides well in the car. Freckles is looking for her forever home--will it be yours?

We found Freckles currently being cared for by Starfish Pet Rescue and Adoption Center in Florida. Starfish Pet Rescue evolved as a means to help at least a few dogs find their talents in life, whether it be as an agility dog, disc dog, therapy dog, and, in all cases, beloved friend.

Meet Milo, Duke IV, and Silky!

Milo, Duke IV and Silky are all Bichons, ages 5, 11 and 7 years old.

Milo, the fantastic little guy on the left! Aren't they the best looking trio? They are a bit sad right now because their owner passed away, but they're also very optimistic that they will find wonderful new homes.

Duke is Milo's father, and Silky is Milo's mother. They've been together a long time and would like to stay that way. However, they do understand that adopting 3 dogs is a lot to ask of one person or family. They are willing to part as long as they all go to excellent and loving homes!

All three adore children, dogs, and even cats. They are all house-broken, house-trained, healthy, and low-maintenance. They just want to be loved and appreciated.

Their former human Daddy was so kind to them, and he raised them up right! They are beyond precious.

We found these three currently being cared for by Max Fund, in Denver. Colorado. The MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered. The MaxFund is a no-kill dog and cat shelter. MaxFund assists hundreds of people and animals each year by trying to make the correct match between owner and pet. MaxFund adopts our animals to Colorado residents only.

Meet Woody!

Woody is a big handsome male Chocolate Lab, about 2 yrs old. Like any lab, he loves the water! He is good with kids and other pets, and is neutered, and UTD on shots.

We found Woody currently being cared for by Paws for Life, Inc., in Chesapeake City, Maryland. As a 501(c)3 tax exempt charitable organization, any and all donations are tax deductible, very welcome, and greatly appreciated by Paws for Life.

Meet Molly!

Molly is a great little girl waiting for her forever home. She is a 1.5 year old Chihuahua mix and weighs about 15 lbs. She is good with children and other dogs, but would do well without cats.

We found Molly being taken care of by the Arizona Animal Welfare League in Phoenix, Arizona. Founded in 1971, The Arizona Animal Welfare League and SPCA is the state's oldest and largest no-kill shelter. Their shelter facilities provide a temporary home for nearly 2,000 dogs and cats every year, offering medical and behavioral treatment for those in need.

For more information about Molly, click here!

Meet Sugar!

Sugar is a Cattle Dog mix of 2 years old. She is housebroken and would do well around older children (8+ years or older). She weighs about 50 pounds. Sugar has one request and that is that she be the "only" 4-legged companion in the home as she doesn't like to share the attention.

She loves to snuggle on the couch with you and probably in your bed as well. A fenced yard is required. Sugar I recently went and did a "School Visit" and was so sweet and great with all of the kids!

We found Sugar currently being cared for by Pet Refuge in Mishawaka, Indiana. Pet Refuge is a not-for-profit "no-kill" animal shelter run by volunteers for the placement of unwanted and abandoned pets into responsible permanent homes.

For more information about Sugar, click here!

Meet Oliver!

Oliver is a beautiful Shepherd mix, 4-5 months old, and about 15 lbs. He is a very calm, well-behaved snuggly puppy. He will probably be a fairly large dog.

We found Oliver currently being cared for by the Humane Society of Pulaski County in Little Rock, Arkansas. HSPC is a no-kill shelter that helps animals in central Arkansas.

For more information about Oliver, click here!

Meet Vanessa!

Vanessa is a real cutie who is very playful and loves belly rubs. She is a young terrier mix who enjoys wrestling with her roommate and playing fetch. She is a small-size prize!

She needs a home without children under the age of 5 or cats and special fencing because of my talent for climbing chain link.

We met Vanessa through Living Free Animal Sanctuary in Mountain Center, California. In 1980 Emily Jo Beard acquired 153 acres in the San Jacinto Mountains near Idyllwild and named it Living Free Animal Sanctuary — which is the only sanctuary founded by Emily. She devoted the rest of her life to providing refuge for orphaned cats and dogs. "We have an obligation to better the lives of the animals with whom we share the earth," said Emily. Today at Living Free they: save the lives of Cats and Dogs who otherwise would be euthanized; spread the message that our companion cats and dogs are entitled to secure lives enhanced by loving care; and teach youngsters and adults to understand, respect and value animals.

Meet Irving!

Irving is so adorable! He is mostly white with some brown cow spots, an American Bulldog, Pit Bull Terrier Mix. He is just about 1 year old and is a super friendly and social little guy. He was taken from a city shelter where they had found him as a stray wondering the streets, all beat up and scarred.

Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge took him in and nursed him back to health. He is heartworm positive but already underwent treatment to fix it. He also still has a lot of scars as reminder of what he has been through. After everything all he craves is attention. He is desperate to be loved! Please give this little man a chance at a wonderful life that he deserves!

For more information about Irving, click here!

As many of you know my sister Gracie was taken from a hoarder in South Central, Indiana. Another case of hoarding of large proportions was recently discovered in Bergen County, in Northern New Jersey, which the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge serves.

Animal welfare workers seized over 100 dogs and cats from a hoarder, some had suffered horrible deaths, but some are alive and now being cared for. The shelters are full and many dogs and cats in that area need help. We hope you will do what you can through donations of goods, services or funds, through foster or adoption, or by helping to get the word out further.

Here are a few links for more information:

Fun Things To Do With Your Pup Link Love Project!

There are so many fun things you can do with your pups. And I know that many dogs out there would love to have a list of things they can do with their Mums and/or Dads. So, I put together this Fun Things To Do With Your Pup Link Love Project, for us to all have a great list of activities!

Mum and I like to go canoing when we get a chance. We drive north about 45 minutes to a place that rents canoes, they transport us up the White River about 2 or so miles by school bus (and I do pretty well in that bus, by the way), then Mum puts on her life jacket herself and puts my Ruff Wear life jacket on me and we are off! I'm really good about staying in the canoe, so Mum can paddle us along. We stop along shore along the way for snacks and exploring and wading in the water. About two hours later we pull up to where our car is! It's great fun, you should try it sometime, makes for a great weekend afternoon!

If you participated in my Fruits and Veggies Link Love Project, you know what to do! If not, read on.

There are all kinds of fun activities for us dogs, right? Well, let's make a list! And get some link love in the process.


1.) Copy and paste the matrix of “Fun Things To Do With Your Dog” below, courtesy of Johann The Dog!

2.) Substitute the Host Tag and one of the “Activities” in the matrix with the name of a dog activity and URL of your blog, just like I did.

3.) When you get a ping back from someone that has your link in one of their “Activities”, practice good paw by copying his/her Host Tag’s anchor text (automatically the associated link will also be copied) and paste it over one of your “Activities” below.

5.) Encourage and invite your readers to do the same and soon this can grow fast. And if your not a dog, but your blog about dogs, or own a dog, you are also welcome to participate!

Host Tag: Agility - JohannTheDog

1. Agility - JohannTheDog
2. Disc Dog - Pop Dog Blog
3. A Day at the Dog Friendly Beach - The Dog Dish

Important: Once I get a ping back from you, I will add your anchor text and the associated link you designate as “Host Tag” here, replacing one of the “Activity” from the matrix above. As more and more doggie bloggers copy and paste this matrix, the more backlinks you will have with your anchor text. If everybody who copies and pastes from your blog does the same, pretty soon this will spread and go viral. So, the sooner you participate, the more links with anchor text you will receive.

There it is folks. This should help you improve your Technorati ranking, SERP and Google PR and get you noticed with more blogs - we all like making friends, right? Please leave a comment here if you have copied from this matrix so that I can add you just in case your ping-back didn’t reach me.

Meet George Weasley!

Six-month-old George Weasley is a sensitive and gentle flower. He will thrive in a calm home and will benefit from plenty of socialization to help him blossom. George Weasley is rated for children of any age. He currently weighs 18 pounds, is UTD on routine shots and neutered.

George is currently being cared for by ARF (Animal Rescue Foundation) in Walnut Creek, California. Baseball manager Tony La Russa and his wife, Elaine, co-founded ARF in 1991 after he rescued a terrified stray cat that ran onto the field during an A's-Yankees game.

From its humble beginnings, ARF has grown quickly, so that they are now able to rescue and find loving homes for more and more abused and abandoned cats and dogs each year. They also have created programs that bring the healing touch of animals to at-risk youth and others who dearly need a good dose of unconditional love.

Meet Timmy!

Timmy loves to sleep in bed with his foster parents! He will burrow his way all the way to the bottom of the bed and sleep there most of the night. He is in foster care with much larger dogs and loves to play with them and they take such gentle care of him. Timmy is a three year old, male, Chihuahua.

Everyone likes Timmy - dogs and people. He is so tiny and loves to be carried around but has plenty of energy to play and go for walks too. Timmy will enrich many lives and his new family will be very lucky to have such a cute, loving canine friend to share their lives with!

Timmy's idea home would be an adult only home. He is house trained, walk well on a leash, is very social with other dogs, and is unknown with cats.

We found Timmy currently being cared for by R.E.S.C.U.E in Phoenix, Arizona. RESCUE is an acronym that stands for Reducing Euthanasia at Shelters through Commitment and Underlying Education. Their primary focus continues to be the adult cats and dogs who are scheduled to be euthanized. They operate with the philosophy that for every animal placed, they are back at Animal Care and Control to rescue another. The passion that began RESCUE has resulted in a volunteer-driven non-profit corporation with over 300 dedicated volunteers who have helped them care for and place over 8,000 wonderful cats and dogs.

Meet Fergus!

Fergus is a four to five month old Sheepdog/Aussie mix male puppy. He is super social and he loves other dogs. He seems quite bright and learned his name in just a couple of hours, also mastered stairs (he had seemingly never been up or down stairs previously!) .

He also listens well and really wants to please. He is snuggly and has an active and fun-loving personality - but he also knows how to stop, relax and "smell the roses" or rather - enjoy a cuddle and a good nap (or sleep through the night!). He's a very active young man and will need lots of exercise. Everyone that meets Fergus falls in love. We'd like him to have a home with a good yard, another dog and people who know and understand dogs and have the time to give him a great life!

We met Fergus through the Milo Foundation in Berkeley, California.

The Milo Foundation was named after an Australian Shepherd. Milo was five weeks old when Lynne Tingle discovered that her puppy was both deaf and blind. Despite concerns from friends and family, Lynne was determined to give Milo a good life.

Today, The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization providing an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and providing sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found. Founded in August of 1994, The Milo Foundation is located on two hundred and eighty-three acres in Mendocino County - offering lots of room for the animals to run and play. Milo houses cats, dogs, puppies and kittens - occasionally farm animals and other domestic creatures find their way to the sanctuary.

Consider a shelter pup!

Looking for a new pup? Consider one from a shelter (they will amaze you, just look at me and Gracie).

Get out the tissues,, you're gonna need 'em.

Meet Brittany!

Brittany is a Brittany Spaniel. She is a sweet lady who was taken out of the pound and brought to Animal Ark in hopes of finding a real family to love and call her own. She's an older gal, looking for mellow fun. She just spent a week in foster care so they could find out more about her.

Her foster mom says that she is very cuddly and friendly and in a home setting, she's much more comfortable and eager to spend time with people. When she's happy, she would often do little "dances" around the house! Brittany does just fine with other dogs, but would also be OK being the only dog. And she's housetrained! One funny thing about her is that she can’t bark. Sometimes, she gets all excited and moves her mouth like she is barking but nothing comes out! It doesn’t seem like she's been debarked, because she doesn't make that quiet, croaky sound.

So, hey, do you have a spot for a cuddly, good-natured girl who’s easy to have around? Maybe you should come meet her! We found Brittany currently being taken care of by Animal Ark in Twin Cities, Minnesota!

For more information on Brittany, click here!

Meet Trisha!

Just look at this graceful aristocratic face! Trisha's ancestors came from ancient Russia and were originally owned exclusively by noblemen. She is a Borzoi mix, 52 lbs., spayed and about 1.5 years old.

As is typical of this breed, Trisha appears somewhat aloof when first meeting her, but once she gets to know you, she is very affectionate. Trisha needs plenty of space to exercise and should be an excellent jogging companion. Preferably her new yard will be fenced in and Trisha would do best with older children.

We found Trisha currently being cared for by Noah's Ark Animal Foundation in Fairfield, Iowa. They are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, charitable, nonprofit organization. For over 18 years Noah's Ark Animal Foundation has offered loving care to homeless and abandoned cats and dogs.

Meet Butchie!

Butchie is a mature Airedale Terrier who appreciates a calm, quiet environment. The poor guy found himself in the middle of a divorce, and he subsequently became homeless.Butchie is a refined soul. (He is not a real fan of petting and roughhousing.) Also, he'd like you to know that he would really rather be the only pet in an adult-only house.

Butchie would make a very nice walking companion. He walks very well on a leash, never tugging or pulling. In fact, walking beside a kind two-legged friend is how Butchie prefers to interact with people.

He is pretty sensitive about having some parts of his body, such as his muzzle and mouth, handled. Poor Butchie also becomes nervous in new or unfamiliar situations. So a stable, predictable home is what this adorable older gentleman is searching for.

Now that we got those things out of the way, it's time to meet this quiet, considerate friend and discover the incredible gentleman that he is.

We found Butchie being cared for by Animal Friends. Animal Friends, Southwestern Pennsylvania’s premier companion animal resource center, is committed to building, nurturing and respecting the human-animal bond and creating a community where our relationship with companion animals is guided by compassion

For more information about Butchie, click here!

Meet McGuyver!

McGuyver is an extremely cute little guy, solid white, about 12 lbs and about 5 mos old. He is very friendly and playful and likes other dogs and cats.

He came out of the shelter where he was surrendered along with 17 other animals! He is still occasionally fearful, particularly of vacuum cleaners and reprimands from older dogs. These things make him want to hide under furniture sometimes, but a loving home should soon cure him of that. He has received his rabies shot, heartworm test, puppy shot, worming, and spay/ neuter.

We found McGuyver currently being cared for by Jackson County Humane Society in Sylvia, NC. They are an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit corporation composed of a small group of volunteers who rescue animals from the shelter, the roads, and the community and keep them in their own homes. ARF has a no-kill policy, which means that volunteers foster the animals until someone adopts them, no matter how long it takes. Some animals have been fostered for more than thirteen years.

For more information about McGuyver, click here!

Meet Eddie!

Eddie is a pleasure to walk on a leash and knows how to sit, lie down and almost roll over on cue. He may not go all the way over because his ears are still hurting him a little.

Eddie was living in a home and was loved by his family, but when they handled his painful ears, he reacted defensively and they returned him to the shelter. Eddie has chronic ear and eye problems that are so typical of Cockers. All his new adopter will have to provide is a home and plenty of love. Eddie was born in February 2003 and is 29 lbs.

We found him currently being care for by the League for Animal Welfare in Cincinnati, Ohio. They are a voluntary, nonprofit, humane organization chartered in 1949. The League for Animal Welfare, which has operated as a no-kill shelter since 1964, is dedicated to bettering the lives of companion animals in the Greater Cincinnati area by providing shelter, adoption, public education, and spay/neuter programs.

For more information on Eddie, click here!

Meet Prescott!

Prescott is a handsome Husky mix. He will be a very large boy when grown. He has a very sweet temperment. He would do well in a family-type setting because he loves kids, cats, other dogs, and life in general!

He is doing well with crate training but he does have one problem - he thinks he is a lap dog. That's ok for now but if he gets to be 100 lbs, we may have a problem! He needs plenty of exercise, is UTD on routine shots and is already house trained.

Prescott is currently be cared for by P.A.W.S (Pets Are Worth Saving), a 501 (c)3, non-profit organization based in Effingham County, Ga with volunteers throughout the Coastal Empire. PAWS is dedicated to saving animals and ensuring that they have a loving, healthy, happy place to live. PAWS screens potential owners before allowing any of our wonderful animals to be adopted. Only responsible owners will be considered. This ensures that the right match is being made for both the potential owner and the animal!

Meet Molly!

Molly is a Basset Mix, about 28 lbs. She was born in July of 2005 and is good with children, maybe good with other dogs, but isn't so good with cats. Molly is a great girl waiting for her forever home.

We found Molly currently being cared for by the Arizona Animal Welfare League in Phoenix, Arizona. Founded in 1971, the Arizona Animal Welfare League and SPCA is the state's oldest and largest no-kill shelter. Their shelter facilities provide a temporary home for nearly 2,000 dogs and cats every year, offering medical and behavioral treatment for those in need.

Meet Cherry!

Cherry is a Wirehaired Terrier, born in April of 2006. She was saved from animal control. She is a big, strong girl and friendly and active. She likes to climb fences so will need a hard with a high fence.

She likes people and dogs, and is smart and would be good at training. We found Cherry currently being cared for by Paws Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia. PAWS Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) private, nonprofit corporation governed by a Board of Directors comprised of volunteers from the community who are dedicated to animal welfare. The Society is not controlled or funded by any statewide or national organization. Donations made by animal lovers to national animal welfare groups do not benefit our local pets.

We found Blue currently being cared for by Paws for Life, in Chesapeake City, Maryland. Paws for Life is a 501(c)3 tax exempt charitable organization, no-kill shelter.

Meet Fern!

Fern came to the Home At Last Animal Shelter in Salvisa, Kentucky, with her mother and eight siblings at only ten days old in the spring of 2000.

They were found in a barrel in a very rural KY community where strays are “controlled” by poisoning or shooting. They have all been adopted, now only Fern and her brother Woodrow remain.

These beautiful shepherd mixes are sweet, though a bit shy of newcomers since they haven’t spent much time off of the sanctuary grounds. They are full of energy, but calm down easily for one-on-one attention. Fern has always been a bit stockier than her siblings and is the most playful.

Home At Last Animal Sanctuary, accredited by the American Sanctuary Association, provides lifetime care for many animals including dogs, cats, pigs, cows, goats, rabbits and a horse, and includes a separate wildlife refuge.

They are a for-life sanctuary, emphasizing the concept of compassion and offering exceptional quality of life for many formerly abandoned or abused animals. Programs include rescue, adoption, educational outreach, low-income spay/neuter assistance, and feral trap/spay/neuter/release.

Meet Sam!

Sam, a young hound/retriever mix, is a very loving dog with a really sweet personality. Friendly toward other dogs and very affectionate towards people. He would be a wonderful family dog.

He is up to date with routine shots and has been neutered. We found Sam currently being cared for by S.O.S. Animal Shelter in Enterprise, Alabama.

Meet Katie!

Katie, a 5 year old, Sharpei/Terrier Mix, is a playful little girl with lots of love to give. Sadly, she lost her home due to a death in the family. Active and energetic, Katie can be a little reserved at first, but will be all smiles once she gets to know you.

We found Katie currently being cared for at the Animals Benefit Club of Arizona, located in Phoenix, Arizona. ABC is a non-profit 501-C3 organization founded in January 1979 by teacher Dee Kotinas and her junior high school high-risk students. Their only source of income is through public donations, bequests and grants.

ABC's Sanctuary has become a model for other no-kill sanctuaries throughout Arizona and elsewhere. ABC has been extremely active in state and local legislation representing the rights and needs of animals and pet owners.
