All it took was a little training, some treats, and duct tape.

That's what Newman the dog needs to paint his masterpieces. The 18-month-old dog from Euclid, Minnesota, who a local news station calls the "next Picasso," paints colorful canvases and sells his work on Etsy (for about $30 a pop).

Adopt Me! Maza Is a Gentle Soul with a Fun Streak

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 Maza, a senior pup currently being cared for by a foster parent through Coco's Heart Dog Rescue in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Maza recently arrived at the rescue with a broken spirit, definitely in need of some TLC.

"He was in poor shape physically. He was covered in fleas, dirty and overall seemed uncomfortable," says Ashley Kurtz, executive director of rescue operations. "We immediately took him into the loving care of a foster home."

One by one they came to say goodbye and scratch his head. 

The morning was brutally cold in South Portland, Maine, but none of the two dozen police officers, firefighters and EMT technicians from across the state who gathered around Shane Stephenson's SUV paid much attention to the temperature.   

"It was pretty tough trying to hold back the tears," recalls Stephenson, a K-9 officer with the town's police department, of the send-off held for veteran police dog Sultan, shortly before he drove the 13-year-old German shepherd to a local vet to be euthanized.

Officials from River Rouge Animal Control were sent out to help the canine and found the animal's face, paws and side all stuck to the freezing ground below.

It was a doghouse of horrors.

On Wednesday, an LAPD motor officer discovered an abandoned dog sitting injured and terrified in a disheveled doghouse by the side of the road in south Los Angeles. The house's door had been nailed.

Rescued by volunteers from the Ghetto Rescue FFoundation, the dog – now named Walter Worthy Higgins – is recovering from horribly infected legs, which appear to be the result of severe neglect and abuse, says Tami Baumann, who runs GRFF, the rescue that will take the dog into its care next week.
