G as in .....

Great dogs, but a few gruesome people!

Today is National Dog Fighting Awareness Day
so we'll be including this and Tuesday's Tails Blog Hop
in the "A to Z Blog Challenge".

Dog Fighting is a illegal, but continues to be a large problem throughout the country. We can't understand how this brings pleasure to anyone. The ASPCA works hard to investigate and crack down on dog fighting rings, but we need to build awareness of the problem within our communities.
Unfortunately, the pit bull has become the face of this scourge and their reputation tarnished by irresponsible owners.

Keeping to the letter G, today we would like to introduce you to Gwen,
one of the sweetest pitties you might ever care to meet!

Here's what the Good people at the Newark Humane Society has to say about her:
"Gwen is a petite tan pit and she is a lady on the move. She was very happy to go outside and play with the toys I had. She has beautiful hazel eye's that match her tan coat. She bunks with another dog and they get along fine. Her food test was good, she is some fast eater. And I bet she would love to have a nice big yard where she could run and run and get rid of some of her energy. She takes treats nicely from your fingers. And would appreciate if someone took her to doggie school.

"... Gwen attends the Shelter hikes and everyone loves the great enthusiasm this beautiful girl has. She will make a great hiking or walking companion and friend to whom ever adopts her. She loves to go on the hikes with the volunteers and other doggies."

  We love the wonderful photos, taken by Stacey Gammon of Stacey Gammon Pet Photography, of the adoptable dogs and cats on the Newark Humane Society's Petfinder pages, including this one.
Gwen, along with many other wonderful pets are available for adoption at the Associated Humane Societies in Newark, New Jersey. All pets at the shelter are up to date on their shots and will be altered and micro-chipped once they've been adopted.
  Please visit their website or give the shelter a call at 973-824-7080.

   The Society offers free DVDs with all cat and dog adoptions at no charge. $300 worth of coupons are offered to each new dog parent and $100 worth of coupons for each new cat parent too!

The Tuesday's Tails Blog hop features shelter pets, all waiting for their forever homes. Please consider featuring a cat, dog or any pet at your local shelter on your blog and join the hop! Sharing these friends will certainly improve their chances of being adopted!
Thank you Dogs 'N Pawz for hosting the hop, in doing so, honoring Princess Phe!


  1. Sadly something that happens over here too and we think we need better laws and harsher punishments. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Gwen IS gorgeous. And my head hurts when I even try to understand how anyone could "enjoy" such a sadistic "sport". Could have used D for disgusting.
