TO BE DESTROYED - 12/21/12
Brooklyn Center - New York
Rufff Ruff! My name is Ginger. My Animal ID # is A0953428.
I am a female brown and white pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years old.
I’m just a young lady who wants a new human for the holidays.
I came in the shelter as a stray on 12/17/2012 from NY 11422, owner surrender reason stated was stray.
Fuck this shelter, seriously. You’re only giving the dog 4 days to find a home? Really?
STRAY DOG IN AFGHANISTAN REFUSES TO BE LEFT BEHIND - “one morning the commander of the base ordered all the dogs be removed…Bolt apparently ran behind the convoy for 10 miles or so before the vehicle commander let him back on…”
Marine Sergeant Shaun Duling befriended a stray dog named Bolt at a military base in Afghanistan. Duling fed Bolt and made him a dog house. Their bond was strong, as described by kcbd.com:
His name is Bolt and he’s a stray dog in Afghanistan. When Shaun was sent overseas last October, the two instantly had a bond that could not be broken. Shaun spent his days taking care of Bolt, bringing him food, building him a dog house, and in return Bolt gave Shaun a companion that made life easier while alone in Afghanistan.
One day, all dogs were ordered off the base and transported to another town. However, Bolt chased the returning soldiers for 10 miles in an effort to get back to the base. Bolt and Duling were reunited again, but unfortunately Duling eventually had to return to the U.S. without Bolt. The scene is described as follows:
Then the time came where Shaun had to leave, and Bolt had to stay behind. “As I was walking to the helicopter I tried to get some of the guys to hold on to him, but he broke free and he tried to jump on with me,” Shaun said. “I think he knew I was leaving, and leaving for good. He just looked sad and confused and I was just like that can’t be the last time I see him.”
Bolt tried everything he could to stay near his friend. Now, Duling is raising money so he can adopt Bolt and bring him to the U.S. Hopefully Bolt will be able to live forever with the person he loves most. Click here for the full story from KCBD, and here for a first-hand account from Sgt. Duling.

THERAPY DOG WHO COMFORTS CANCER PATIENTS BEATS CANCER HIMSELF - “A loving dog who brings smiles to cancer patients is now fighting cancer himself. But this story has a happy ending.”
A Labrador Retriever named Conrad has been providing comfort to cancer patients as a therapy dog at various hospitals in Florida. However, Conrad was diagnosed with rare bone cancer in his nose. Fortunately, his treatment was successful and he is back on the job. Read more from wogx.com:
The journey started several weeks ago when Conrad suffered a bloody nose. His owner, Amy Morton, who happens to be a firefighter, jumped to action and rushed him to the vet. Three biopsies later, doctors diagnosed the dog with a rare bone cancer in his nose. Now, he’s recovering, and ready to get back to work.But, it’s been awhile since anyone has seen Conrad. For the past four weeks, he was on sick leave battling his own cancer. Morton says, “On Friday, he finished a month’s worth of radiation, and hopefully, he’ll be in remission.”
When Conrad comes to the MD Anderson Cancer Center, he knows it’s time to work.
“As soon as I pull into the parking garage, he pokes his head up from chewing on his duck. He knows he is coming here to make people happy,” Morton says…
Let’s hope that Conrad is in remission so he can continue to live an amazing life. Click here for the full story and a news video.
19-YEAR-OLD DOG SEEKS FAMILY TO ADOPT HIM - “Staff at Battersea Dogs Home believe the 19-year-old is the oldest dog they have looked after since the charity was founded in 1860.”
Blackie arrived in August as his owners could no longer care for him, but since arriving he has impressed staff with his energy and his love of going for walks, despite his old age.
Battersea operations manager Philip Heron said: ‘We can’t find any record of an older dog. Blackie still has lots of love to give, so we’re searching for a special home for him.’
Despite his advanced age, Blackie seems to be in good spirits. Hopefully a great home awaits him as he enters the last phase of his life. Click here for the full story and here for the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home Facebook page.
