Adopt Me! Roxie Can't See You But She Already Loves You

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 Roxie, a blind pup currently being cared for by Animal Friends Rescue Project of Pacific Grove, California.

She may have a disability, but that doesn't hold Roxie back one bit. The 8-month-old beagle/pit bull mix came to the rescue with a damaged eye that was later removed – and she's completely blind in the other eye. In her short life, she's learned to "see" with her nose, ears and sense of touch.

There's a real scandal brewing on the Scandal set – and for a change it has nothing to do with the White House or extramarital affairs.

Kerry Washington's dog, Josie, plays favorites and everyone knows it.

"[Josh Malina] is Josie's favorite," Washington tells PEOPLE. But here's where things get complicated: "I'm pretty sure [Josh] likes her more than he likes me, and I guarantee if anyone asked him, he would agree."

Dog Survives Fall Into 35-Ft. Well in Massachusetts

Originally posted 08/05/2015 01:50PM

Superdog might be a more appropriate name for this pointer mix.

The pup named Vedder – in honor of the Pearl Jam frontman – caused quite the stir in Medfield, Massachusetts, on Tuesday when he fell down a well at least 35 feet deep and suffered nothing but a few scratches.

Several area rescuers, including the Norfolk County Technical Rescue Team, responded to the call to help the male pooch, who fell into the well when he stepped on a rotted wooden cover, the Boston Globe reports.

A firefighter named Keith Darling was lowered by rope to get the dog out, while Vedder's owner Kemper Dorsey, @kdorsal on Instagram, filmed the rescue (watch it above).

Following in Nana's pawsteps, the Jack Russell terrier in this video is doing his best to be a superb mentor to a 5-month-old baby.

When there's something stinky in the neighboorhood, who you going to call? The Turdinator!

That's the nickname Andrew Hawes has adopted in his vigilante campaign to get dog owners to pick up after their pets, reports the BBC.

The Suffolk, England, man is starting a name-and-shame project in his town of Leiston, where he plans to camouflage himself and take video of dog owners who don't clean up their pet's poop from the streets and sidewalks.
