All of these dogs came from the Chicago Animal Care and Control, Visit the One Tail at a Time Dog Rescue to see how you can help.
My neighbor found his lost dog. The dog was lost for 4 or 5 weeks. I think he was driving far away from home yesterday and he saw his dog on the street, she was skinny so he said her name and BAM! It was Gretel.
1. If you adopt, you’ll save a life
Around 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the United States simply because too many people give up their pets, and too few people adopt from shelters.
Because there is limited space at shelters, staff members sometimes need to make very hard decisions to euthanize animals who haven’t been adopted.
The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.
By adopting from a private humane society or animal shelter, rescue group, or the local animal-control agency, you’ll help save the lives of two animals—the pet you adopt and a homeless animal somewhere who can be rescued because of space you helped free up.

Ligers and mules are old news. They’re also no where near as exciting – one is the mix of two wild species, the other is the mix of two domestic species. Jackal-dog hybrids mix both wild and domesticated species. This mix of backgrounds produces cubs that grow into a beautiful blend of both parents.

Also sometimes referred to as a jaguon, the jaglion is one of many portmanteaus used to define hybrid species of animals. In this case, it’s the blend of two big cats: a lion and a jaguar. Both belonging to the genus Panthera, their genetics aren’t too far off. It’s not surprising that they’re able to mate, but they are extremely rare.
Dogs are man’s best friend, through the good times and the bad. They’ve always stood by his side – even through the First World War. The U.S. War Dogs Association (USWDA) estimates 20,000 Allied dogs and 30,000 Central dogs served across the European battlefields in 1918. Another source found that more than 2,000 dogs were used on the Western Front alone. Dogs played essential roles in their military service, working so hard they barely had time for fetch.
Imagine owning a piece of history. While there are many dog breeds that go back for decades if not centuries, it’s rare that any which are recognized today are still around. Bandogs are one of the few exceptions, depending on your commitment to accuracy. They’re an old and obscure breed of dog that are known for superior guarding skills and lots of love.
