Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Digit, a 4-year-old shepherd mix waiting for his forever home at the North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington, New York.
Everything changed for Digit six months ago when his family gave him up because they were moving to an apartment that didn't allow dogs. Living in a busy shelter with lots of dogs and cats is a far cry from the quiet home he once knew – so it takes time for him to warm up and trust new people.

A Jack Russell terrier that went missing from its Pennsylvania home has turned up at an animal shelter nearly 3,000 miles away.
A good Samaritan this month spotted the 7-year-old dog named Gidget wandering in the Portland suburb of Tualatin, and brought her to the Bonnie L. Hays Animal Shelter, said Deborah Wood, manager of Washington County Animal Services.
Wood said Wednesday that a microchip implanted in Gidget revealed that the owner lived near Philadelphia. Contacted by the shelter, the owner said her dog has been missing since April 22, two days after Easter.

Whenever the Museum of Modern Art needs more masterpieces, Jimmy Choo will be a shoe-in.
The English bull terrier is the subject of the amazing portraits on Rafael Mantesso's Instagram page, which has garnered nearly 60,000 followers to date.
The 5-year-old dog is capturing the hearts of many with his hilarious poses, including one as an angel, another as a bank robber and one with a bra covering his eyes. It's hard to believe the whimsical images – which are often accompanied by a cute cartoon drawing by Mantesso – came from something quite sad.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Hadley, a 4-month-old bulldog/collie mix who can win anyone's heart.
Talk about saving the best for last! Over the past two months, Hadley has watched each of her siblings go off to loving homes. She's the last of an unwanted litter that wound up at the Hub City Humane Society in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and she's ready to move on, too.
"She was shy when she first came in, but has come full circle and is the greatest puppy ever," says Sarah Douglas, a spokeswoman for the rescue. "She is really sweet and gets along great with other animals, kids and everyone!"
