A picture can sometimes be the difference between finding a loving family or waiting for one for a lot of dogs.  One woman is trying to give dogs more chances by taking professional, beautiful photos of them.  Read the full story below.

Yet another example of how incredible a dogs will to survive can be.  Thank you, rescuers, for showing compassion and helping this little guy find his forever home.

I just recently got two emails detailing petitions going around on change.com and have signed them to show my support.  The first one states that in the state of Kentucky, it is not illegal to own, breed, or train dogs for dog fighting.  The petition aims to make Kentucky the last state to punish individuals who know as long as they are not caught, they cannot be charged.  The second petition states that the AKC (American Kennel Club) has opposed over 150 petitions that would have forced puppy mills to adhere to humane standards.  Please sign these petitions and pass them along, every signature helps.

Earlier this month, a dog was shot, tied to the train tracks and left to die.  Luckily, good samaritans were able to intervene before anything else happened.  The dog, now named Cabela, is recovering at a clinic in FL.  It is my personal opinion that the horrible people who did this to Cabela should receive the same punishment.  Anyway, if you want to read more about Cabela and how she is recovering, click on the link below.

A dog was poisoned at a dog show in England this past weekend.  Jagger, as the dog was named, was killed by what is believed to be a couple different types of poison, one which was slug killer.  It is very sad news to hear that a pets life has been cut so short, and I hope that they find the source of the problem soon.  RIP Jagger.

I love when good pit bull news makes it into the media, showing examples of the breed at their best.  If you haven't heard about Hulk yet (not the comic book hero!), you need to check out his story.  Not only is he quite possibly the biggest pit bull on record, weighing in at 175 pounds, but his story is educating people who are still wary of the breed.

Last year, there was a viral photo that circulated around the internet.  The photo was of a man who, every day, took his senior pet named Schoep into a lake to ease his pets weary joints.  Sadly, Schoep passed away.  However, Unger has found happiness again with his new rescue dog, Bear.  Click on the article below to read the full story.
