My nephew has been a total dog fanatic since he was just a few years old, but it was never in the cards to get one... until now. On his 10th birthday a few days ago, my sister introduced him to Dixie, who they adopted just before her time was up at a high-kill shelter.
She is just gorgeous! Probably a Border Collie mix... Just look at this sweet girl!
Congratulations to Gregory (and my sis and brother-in-law, Natalya and Paul)!

This footage of a frightened and abandoned dog is painful and moving.
Luckily, it moved enough people online to rally behind him, and (unlike countless other abandoned dogs), in the end, this sweet boy was rescued.
But, in just the few seconds it took you to view this post, thousands of equally terrified animals (including chickens, pigs, cows and fish) were needlessly and brutally killed against their will…all for foods and other products we do not need.
What will it take for us to stop the violence against the most vulnerable beings on the planet? What will it take for us to have empathy, not just for cats and dogs, but for all animals?
We humans have no biological need to eat any animals foods (and in fact are healthier avoiding them altogether). And, it's also worth noting that animal agriculture is devastating our global environment on many fronts (for example, animal agriculture was the leading driver of deforestation and producing more human-caused greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector combined).
We really need to stop this madness. The animals and the environment cannot wait.
If you are not doing so already, please withdraw your support for unnecessary exploitation and violence against animals by going vegan today, and do whatever you can to help raise awareness of these important issues.

All the late nights, the worry, the heartache, and the effort that it took to pull mama Jayleen back from death's ledge is peanuts compared to the feeling of seeing her FINALLY find her home. I can't verbalized the spectrum of emotions that I'm going through right now, but, bottom line, WE DID IT!!!!! 🎉🍾🎉🍾🎉🍾 #adopted
I definitely think we have a connection and we've only met through a photo! Diesel is a very handsome male blue and white Pit Bull Terrier (perhaps mixed with some American bulldog) with gorgeous blue eyes (his pictures don't do him justice!). He was born in May 2015, and he weighs around 65 pounds. He came to BARK with his best friend Sadie, when their owner could no longer provide care for them. Sadie has since found her forever home and now it's Diesel's turn! Diesel does well other dogs (though he needs someone who can handle his rambunctious play style) but would be just as content as the only recipient of his owner's affection. Diesel, being younger, is energetic and outgoing, and would make a wonderful companion for an active owner or family who can involve him in all kinds of adventures. He loves to play and go for long walks on the trail. He has a fun loving personality and is always smiling and happy to be with you. He is smart and eager to please, and of course, treat motivated! He is a sweet boy and we know he will be a wonderful companion. Diesel is a graduate of our BARK Behind Bars prison training program. As a program graduate, he is crate trained, has very nice house manners, and already knows basic commands. Diesel is recommended for children 6 and older. What more can you really ask for?! If you would like to meet Diesel, please submit an adoption application online at www.barkva.org or contact us at email@example.com or call 804-449-BARK(2275). #barkva#adoptme#adoptdontshop#dogsofinstagram#pitbull#pitbullsofinstagram
