Meet the Dog Investigators Say Helped Catch Ex-Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle

Meet the Dog Investigators Say Helped Catch Ex-Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle
Article from ABC News:

One of the key players to cracking the case against former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle has a keen sense of smell and four legs.

His name is Bear and he’s a dog trained to sniff out electronic media devices, including a hidden flash drive that Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Debrota said was vital to the investigation. The 2-year-old Labrador retriever helped find evidence at Fogle’s home in Zionsville, Indiana, when authorities raided the house in early July.

Meet the rescue dog playing Sandy in ‘Annie’

Meet the rescue dog playing Sandy in ‘Annie’
Article from New York Post:

Arriving at her film premiere in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes, walking the red carpet with producers Will Smith and Jay Z — it’s a dog’s life for Marti, the golden retriever-chow mix who stars as Sandy in the new “Annie.”

The 6-year-old female was rescued from the Adopt-a-Dog shelter in Armonk, NY, by trainer Bill Berloni.

He says film director Will Gluck had a series of requirements for the new Sandy: she had to be female, able to spin in circles on cue and look different from the scruffy Sandys of the past. Berloni cast terrier mixes for both the original Broadway show and the 2012 revival. (The 1982 “Annie” movie starred an otterhound.)

Marti was the 16th dog to audition, and, with her fluffy chow hair trimmed down, she scored the role.

Since “Annie” wrapped, Marti has made her theater debut in the off-Broadway play “The Open House.”

“Hopefully, she’ll work a little bit more before she retires,” Berloni says.

Meet Pig: ‘Half-dog’ wonder pup a big hit in hometown
Article from fox8.com:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — She’s an unusual dog with an amazing story.

Pig was born with severe birth defects; she’s missing part of her spine and several ribs, according to the Alabama Media Group. Parts of her hips and joints also face the wrong directions.

But Pig is a big hit where she lives in Alabama, where she’s been called a “wonder dog.”

Her owner, Kim Dillenbeck, rescued her after she was born. A veterinarian recommended she be euthanized because of her defects.

Carver Police Officer Dives Deep to Save Dog Submerged in Car
Article from Boston.com:

Dogs may be man’s best friend, but it’s not always just a one-way street.

Carver Police Officer David Harriman is racking up the accolades as an Internet hero this weekend, after diving under eight feet of murky water to save a dog trapped in a submerged car Saturday.

Carver Police Department

Its owner, Debra Titus, of Plymouth, and another pup were able to escape the pickup truck as it sank, though a second spooked pooch remained trapped underwater when officers arrived.

Harriman, described as an “avid dog lover” by the department, quickly gave his gun belt to his partner and dove into the water, managing to open the car door and retrieve the animal.

“The dog was returned to its owner in good health but a little frightened,” a statement from the department read.

Meet Tufão, the Cutest Dog You’ve Never Heard Of

Meet Tufão, the Cutest Dog You’ve Never Heard Of
Article from TIME:

Everyone, say hello (or olá, as it were) to Tufão. You’ve probably never heard of him, which is tragic. But all that’s about to change. Here he is:

Tufão lives in Portugal with his owner Raquel Strada, a well-known Portuguese actress and TV host. Tufão has built up quite a reputation for himself thanks to his sizable Internet following. He’s got his very own Facebook page with more than 14,000 likes, and, of course, his own Instagram feed.

But alas, this pup’s fame has yet to extend beyond Portugal. Now it’s time for the rest of the world to make his adorable acquaintance, thanks to one NewsFeed reader who wrote in wishing Tufão made our influential animals of 2013 list.

Here he is being impossibly fluffy and cute with Strada:

And here they are again:

Tufão’s name is Portuguese for typhoon, which makes sense because looking at him is like getting hit with a typhoon of cuteness. For examp…………………continues on TIME

Good morning, I’m Renee Montagne.

We remember, this morning, Elwood. He was a good dog. But cute, he was not – tiny, hairless except for a tufty Mohawk, with hooded eyes and a red tongue that stuck out. Six years ago, Elwood shot to fame when he was named the world’s ugliest dog.

He died on Thanksgiving Day but is immortalized in a popular children’s book written by owner Karen Quigley. “Everyone Loves Elwood” is about how it’s OK to be different.
