Rooster is a handsome little male Border Collie Australian Shepherd mix puppy who was found trotting along the side of the road in rural Arkansas near the community of Whitehall. It wasn’t long before Rooster and his litter mates were picked up and taken to the local shelter. Most small rural animal shelters lack the resource to keep any animals they rescue for very long. The future was looking bleak for little Rooster until a couple of […]

The shaped painting on wood is by artist Colleen Gnos, a SoCal resident who grew up in nearby Dixon, a small farming community. The monumental work, titled Stewards of the Soil, is Gnos’s salute to local farmers, known for their crops of sunflowers, watermelon and alfalfa; […]

As usual, they walked by my kennel gate ignoring me … ditto! After the early morning rush of kindly folks putting dibs on their choices of “dog gaters” as I called them (the more social, outgoing dogs who knew how to sell themselves […]

Bulldogs, French bulldogs and Boston terriers aren’t the only dogs with short, wide heads, but they do share another feature not found […]

Winnie is a sweet and friendly female wire haired terrier mix puppy.

11,500 years ago in what is now northeast Jordan, people began to live alongside dogs and may also have used them for hunting, a new study from the University of Copenhagen shows. The archaeologists suggest that the introduction of dogs as hunting aids may explain the dramatic increase of hares and other small prey in the archaeological remains at the site. Dogs were domesticated by humans as early as 14,000 years ago in the Near East, but […]
