Good evening, here are some photos of a Rhodesian Ridgeback (a.k.a. African Lion Dog) puppy playing with a lion cub. It’s from, like, three years ago but I had never seen these before and, really, does it even matter? Enjoy!

Remember Champ, the happiest dog in the world? His owner, Candice Sedighan, just shared with us a new series of photos she’s taken of the adorable dog and his new found friends. Recently, Candice ran into a man who was holding chicks in a box. “He asked me if I think any factories would want them, but I offered to take them instead so I could find them a safer home. I bought all the necessary supplies to keep them comfortable and healthy for a few days, and will be donating them to a local college’s teaching farm.” See more photos of Champ and his adventures via Instagram.

"Big John" — a Rottweiler who was picked up as a stray. Still in quarantine at the shelter. All he wants is for someone to pay attention to him and pet him. He knows "sit" and he gives me his paw when he doesn’t want me to go.

I found out yesterday that this dog was put down, for reasons that boiled down to fear and ignorance on the part of some of the shelter staff. He was not a bad dog, he was not a dangerous dog. He was a dog who deserved more of a chance than he got. He was young, healthy, and he had promise. He had a heart and he had a desire to be loved. His story isn’t uncommon. I don’t know what else to say, except that he deserved better, and so does every other dog who has been, and will be, in his situation.

My mind keeps going to him and trying to figure out how I can make things right, but there isn’t any way to make anything right. I won’t forget him any time soon. I want other people to remember him, to remember that education is important, that we should not turn away from animals in need because of fear, but turn to them with understanding and compassion. Remember that a dog’s breed does not automatically make him aggressive or dangerous. Remember, when you’re looking for a new dog, that there are dogs in shelters all over the world who are sweet, and kind, and only waiting for a chance. And a lot of them never get a chance. 

This is making less sense as I continue typing. I don’t know what else to say.

PSA from Manchester Animal Shelter (FB):

Is this a cute picture? Do you see “cute” pictures of your friends’ kids on FB? No it isn’t cute, it’s an accident waiting to happen. That is not the look of love in that dog’s eyes, it’s the look of stress. Everything about this dog’s body language says he wants some space. The wide eyes (known as whale eye), the ears back and the tense body are all indicators that the dog doesn’t like what’s being done to him.
A relaxed dog would have soft eyes, ears in a neutral position and body would be loose. Placing your dog and your child in situations like these are not only dangerous but setting your dog up for failure - it’s not just “aggressive” dogs that bite. Even non-aggressive dogs can get scared or lose patience. 
Let’s be clear this can be ANY breed dog. 
As ambassadors of bully breeds it is our responsibility to protect our dogs (and the children of course) from situations that could affect their livelihood. One bite regardless if accidental only adds to the stigma we all fight so hard against. Teaching children how to respect a dog’s space is the first step in teaching bite prevention. Remember all dogs have their limits, why test it?


Please share this!

Loose and wiggly body language, always! And just a note on body behavior, not all tail-wagging is created equal! A very high or very low, stiff, quickly wagging tail shows a dog is alert or unsure, and you should always use caution if a dog is exhibiting that kind of wag around another dog or child, or other animal. Loose, wiggly, mid-body wagging is what you want!
