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 Muffin and Scruffy, a bonded pair of pups who were given up after a divorce.
These purebred Jack Russell terriers arrived at the Potter League for Animals of Middletown, Rhode Island, at the beginning of August. In their previous home, they were left alone for long periods of time, which made them extremely close. They're totally best friends, but definitely in need of a little human TLC.

It was a road less traveled by Jeff Kopp and his dog, Bobby.
But something inspired the pooch to take a different route down Marion Road on Monday in Diamond Lake, Michigan, and it's a good thing that Kopp obliged.
The dog pulled his owner to a satellite dish just three feet away from the dirt road where a newborn baby had been left.
"I saw what [looked like] a rabbit at first," Kopp told WOOD TV8. "Then it moved. That's when I started yelling."
The hours-old baby girl, whose umbilical cord was still attached, was lying in the fetal position with leaves on her face, according to Kopp's daughter Cathleen Neal, who ran to her father's aid along with his wife.

We love babies. We love puppies. Put the two together, and we're talking about a level of perfection we once reserved solely for conversations about Ryan Gosling and well-dressed kangaroos.

For Miranda Lambert, home is where her dogs are.
The singer is currently mother to six adorable pups – Waylon, Bellamy, Cher, Delta Dawn, Jessi and Black Betty – and counting.
"I have a little plaque in my house that says: 'There is always room for one more dog,' " she tells PEOPLE.
Lambert, 30, has been rescuing strays since she was a little girl, but it was her first shelter dog, Delilah, who inspired her to found the MuttNation Foundation.
"I started the foundation in 2009 along with my mom and two other board members, with the mission of raising funds to help dogs and shelters," she says.

Every dog must have his day. For one black Lab, that day turned out to be his last.
When the Roberts family found out they'd have to put their dog Duke down, they decided to make his final day the best one yet, complete with burgers, a trip to the park and more snuggles than any dog could ask for.
The Robertses had adopted Duke three years ago, knowing he had terminal cancer. When the time came to say goodbye for good, they asked their family friend Robyn Arouty, a photographer who specializes in animal portraits, to create an unforgettable experience for Duke's last day.

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 three: Manny, Troy and ShyAsia, 3-month-old pit bull mixes who were recently rescued from a neglectful home.
It's incredibly sad to think that the mother of these precious babies was, and still is, tied up on a chain outside her owner's house and has not been spayed. When she became pregnant several months ago, her owner didn't want anything to do with the puppies; they were tossed outside to die without food or water, says the Eleventh Hour Rescue of Rockaway, New Jersey.
