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 Gweeda, a sweet senior pup who's looking for a permanent place to call home after bouncing around in recent years.
In 2006, the Anatolian shepherd mix was adopted into a happy home where she lived for four years. Sadly, in 2011, her owners brought her back to the Kootenai Pets for Life rescue in Libby, Mont., because they were moving and couldn't take her with them.

Photographer Rebecca Leimbach has two very special and very, very adorable muses: her 4-year-old daughter Harper and their 7-year-old English bulldog Lola.
Their on-camera partnership began when Harper was a baby. "Lola would always try to get in the frame, and I'd tell her to 'beat it,'" Leimbach told Today.
But for Leimbach, it's more than a perfect photo op.
Leimbach refers to infertility as the "struggle of my life." All she wanted, after all, was a sibling for her daughter. "It weighed on me every time [in vitro fertilization] would fail," she told Today.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has a (furry) new cast member!
Lisa Vanderpump has adopted the father of her much-loved Pomeranian Giggy, which she revealed on Twitter Sunday by sharing a video of the father-son reunion.
Much like the Bravo series's recent reunion show, Giggy's face-to-face meeting with his father was not entirely drama-free. The younger Pom barked a few times when Dad – a former show dog named Shooter – first stepped foot in his new home.
