    I adopted a border collie mix my mom found in

    May. She is the BEST dog I have ever had. She is so smart, sweet, calm, & clean! She is my constant companion, & I love her to pieces and I'm so happy my little girl is part of my life! I wouldn't trade her for anything.

    So, she wasn't exactly a stray.

    She had an abusive owner and she would wonder all over my neighbor hood and get in the trash all the time. My friend, who lives next door complained to the owner and he said he might as well just shoot her because he couldn't do anything with a broken submissive *****-dog that...

    I found a little white dog running around an

    abandoned stadium in the rain a year and a half ago. I took him home and cleaned him up, and drove him to the shelter the next day, just in case he was lost. Three days later, he came home again, and he got his first ever (I assume) visit to the vet! Poor thing. But, as it turns...
