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 Harriet, a 7-year-old pooch who has come a long way since arriving at the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford, Conn.
The 45-lb. pup may be the picture of perfection now, but this former stray was freezing cold, flea-infested and missing most of her fur on February 4 when animal control officer Audrey McKay captured her and brought her into the shelter.

No doggone excuse is good enough for Alanis Morissette and her husband, Mario "Souleye" Treadway, who is suing a former house manager for the theft of the couple's dog.
In a lawsuit filed March 5, Treadway alleges that Maria Garcia and another family consultant, Patrick Murch, have refused to give back the couple's Chihuahua/pug mix after Garcia was relieved of her duties on Jan. 21. Treadway wants the pup, a one-time street dog, returned and is seeking $25,000 in damages and court costs.

On the NBC sitcom Growing Up Fisher, J.K. Simmons portrays the blind patriarch of a family-of-four whose guide dog is a yellow Labrador named Mel. Off-screen, the cast and crew of the show are making Mel's life a reality for one lucky person.
The show's cast, which includes Jenna Elfman, and crew have adopted an 8 week old yellow Labrador retriever named Guf (an abbreviation for the show), and will sponsor his guide dog training until he can be paired with a visually impaired person, reports Today. The pooch will be cared for by a "puppy raiser" until the age of 18 months, at which time he'll begin training at New York's Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind.
