Pit Bull saves family from intruder!

D-Boy, a pit bull living with his family in Oklahoma, saved the day when an intruder burst into their home recently. Although the dog was shot a total of three times - including once in the head - D-Boy survived and chased the intruder into the night!

Say, can anyone find the phrase "pit bull" anywhere in this story? Oddly enough, no. Looks like when the news is good, the evil phrase isn't spoken...

UPDATE: After many readers posted comments questioning why D-Boy wasn't identified as a pittie, this story was updated on 12/10/08 at 5:40 pm to include the phrase "pit bull." FINALLY! D-Boy gets his day! Go D-Boy!!

A Vicktory dog passes his canine good citizen test!

If Oscar, one of 22 Vicktory Dogs at Best Friends in Utah, wanted to even be considered for a foster home (never mind adoption!), he had to first pass his Canine Good Citizen tests with flying colors.

But Oscar wasn't going to let anyone down! He not only passed - he flew through the course meeting and beating obstacles that would have sent any ordinary canine back to his kennel in shame! Read more...

A REALLY Happy Thanksgiving!

A while ago, I told you about a friend of mine, Brandy. She had been at PAWS for FOUR YEARS. Well, her luck had finally changed when a really, really nice couple came in specifically to meet her!

They spent some time with the lovely Brandy (who was wearing a rather clumsy e-collar due to recent surgery), and it was love at first sight. This previously aloof dog pranced right up to this couple and sat on the fellow's lap as if to say "you're not going anywhere without me!"

The rest is history. They came back a few days later (the day before Thanksgiving) to pick up Brandy and bring her to her forever home.

This had to be the best Thanksgiving any of us has had in a very, very long time!
