The Specials: Adopting An Aggressive Dog

The Specials is a blog series focusing on special needs pet adoption. Senior pets, those with chronic medical issues, behavioral or temperament concerns as well as overlooked or misunderstood breeds like Pit Bulls and black cats. If not, for the courage and compassion of their adopters, many of these animals might have been euthanized in shelters or died alone and hungry on the streets.  Please check out past special needs adoption posts here.

Some dogs, like some people, feel things more deeply. Whether by nurture or nature or a mixed-up blend of both, they are more anxious, sensitive, and intense. Miles is one of these dogs.

Almond&Olive: Making Music, Helping Cats

Like many of you, I am a HUGE fan of Jackson Galaxy and the work of the Jackson Galaxy Foundation (JGF) to improve the lives of animals at risk by transforming the places they live and supporting those who care for them.  So when I heard about fellow Chicagoan and animal advocate Ollie Davidson's creative efforts to raise funds for JGF, I knew I had to help spread the word.
