Japanese Dog Refuses To Leave Friend

LolaBelle’s Daddy found this AMAZING video of a loyal dog in Japan. Obviously  filmed after the devastating tsunami, it shows a dog faithfully standing by his injured friend.

Most Expensive Dog in the World

Meet Hong Dong (Means “Big Splash” in Chinese) the most expensive dog in the world! Hong Dong is a rare Red Tibetan Mastiff and recently sold to a Chinese industrialist for a little over 1.5 million dollars….yes, MILLION.

For that kind of $$ I hope he picks up his own poop……and provides us all with a cure for cancer as well! ha ha!

The Red Tibetan Mastiff is considered one of the oldest breeds in the world and reportedly, Genghis Kahn and Buddha owned these dogs. Since their history is so well documented it’s considered a “pure Chinese” breed.

Only a few years ago you could buy a puppy for just a few hundred dollars but prices have skyrocketed over the years and it’s difficult to find one under 6 figures today.

Thought to be holy animals that provide their owners with blessings of health and security, the breed is commonly identified as independent, intelligent and very protective of its owners and their property.
Thank you SFGsate for this great story!

Pearl, From Rescue to Savior!

Some of you may remember Pearls story from last fall. Pearl was surrendered to a shelter and was subsequently chosen to participate in a program where she was trained for search and rescue. She exhibited the signs of a good search and rescue dog because she was motivated by play, showed intelligence and a drive to succeed!

Pearl was instrumental in saving a dozen people when she was called to work in Haiti. For her work she was given the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Dog of the Year Award for 2010. A children’s book was written about Pearl’s work in Haiti to raise money for training new search dogs. The book is called A New Job for Pearl, and has illustrations made by second graders.

Now she is going to go to work in Japan doing the same kind of search and rescue mission in the aftermath of the recent earthquake. You can see updates of what Pearl is doing on the Search Dog Foundation’s Facebook page. Thanks to Care2 for a great story on adorable Pearl!

How amazing is it that this wonderful, trainable dog was plucked out of a SHELTER and she is saving lives!

Dog Owners Are Healthier

 Well tell us something we DON’T know!

A new study led by a Michigan State University researcher shows people who owned and walked their dogs were 34 percent more likely to meet federal benchmarks on physical activity than those who don’t have dogs.
