    This is Riley, my 3rd (out of 6) rescued

    American Pit Bull Terrier. He was found under a porch of an abandoned house with a cable tie as a makeshift collar and a 35 pound chain attached to that. He was on the waiting list to be put down because the shelter had labeled him "unfit for adoption" because he bit the animal...

    No matter how tough of a day I've had our dog

    is always at the door to greet me, tail wagging and jumping around kind of excited. Isn't unconditional love grand?

    This is Viktor. An American Bully,

    rescued from a backyard breeder/dogfighting ring. Because of his bad breeding, he has hip dysplasia and a heart murmur. But my other dogs and I love him even though he can't play like the others. :)

    I took one of my dogs to the park earlier today,

    and someone with her golden retriever (who was growling at my dog) told me to, "Get that vicious beast out of the park before it kills someone". What a sad and uneducated world we live in.

    He's a Pomeranian and is a nervous little guy.

    He follows me everywhere. I've tried to take him in the car with me, but he acts like a nut! He cries and shakes. I wanted a dog that I could take with me. I'm not sure what to do with him to make him relax and trust that he can be calm and content in the car.

    The Hot Dog Test And Some Sappy Stuff

    He is a cute beagle/ Russell terrier,

    which makes for a very hyper dog, but somehow he is fat. But that just makes him more lovable. He is getting old and weary, and is losing his vision, but we still love him

    My Dog Saved My Life

    Wyatt is a medium sized dog.  He is a black and white mixed breed.  I adopted him from a shelter when he was a puppy.  Groomers and vets have told me they suspect he is part schnauzer and part terrier.  He loves to eat any kind of food that comes from a noisy...
