Missing Pennsylvania Dog Found 3,000 Miles Away from Home

Originally posted 09/19/2014 02:15PM

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!"

When this pup got hurt, she got creative.

In a video Jason Sanders posted on YouTube, an adorable pup who broke her two front legs after jumping off a 6-ft.-tall deck figures out the easiest way to get around with two casts and an Elizabethan collar.

With just a hop and a tail wag she takes on this doorway (twice!) like it's no big deal. We think even her shadow is impressed!

The Daily Treat: A Reason to Dress Your Dog as a Mutant Spider for Halloween

Originally posted 09/05/2014 02:30PM



The words "izty bitzy" definitely don't apply here. Also this spider is doing a lot more than climbing up a water spout.

Meet the super-size arachnid who is scaring the bejesus out of people – and inspiring everyone to dress their dogs as mutant spiders for Halloween.

In a video created by actor/director SA Wardega, Chica the dog stars as, well, herself donning a frighteningly large spider costume. When the jolly little dog prances around in her spider wear before unsuspecting people at night – on a dark campus, in a parking-garage elevator, on a train platform – pandemonium ensues.

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 Waldo, a 3-year-old terrier mix who wants a person to call his own.

When he was plucked from a crowded animal shelter in Solano County, California, by the California Animal Rescue, he was tremendously fearful and cowered in his cage. "In the shelters they are usually so afraid that the shelter managers deem them unadoptable," says the rescue's founder, Vicki Benson. But as it turns out, Waldo just needed a change of scenery.

"They are always afraid at first," says Benson. "But Waldo came around and now he's very devoted."
