Funny Video: Dog Opens and Shuts Door After His Walk

Originally posted 09/19/2014 02:30PM



Dogs do amazing things for us in our time of need. They make us laugh when we're sad, rescue us when we're in danger, carry our groceries when we're lazy (If you missed the one dog on the planet who does that, click here.)

Charlie the dog opens and closes doors all by himself. This is a great thing if your arms are full with groceries, but it's something else entirely if you don't feel like spending your afternoon at the dog park.

Adopt Me! Gain Digit's Trust and He'll Ask for a Belly Rub

Adopt Me! Gain Digit's Trust and He'll Ask for a Belly Rub

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.

Missing Pennsylvania Dog Found 3,000 Miles Away from Home

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!
