Eight to ten week old Chihuahua (Terrier?) mix. The buyer returned him to the original breeder then the breeder dumped him off at Toronto Animal Services South because, the breeder claimed, the pup is aggressive.

Yes, this pup ...


is absolutely ...


vicious.


I'm not going to show the next photo in the series because of its graphic nature, but ten seconds after I took the above shot, that furry monster attacked the guy walking by in the background and after pulling all the contents out of his shopping bag and pissing over all his yoga clothes, the demon dog yanked the guy's booties off and would have eaten his toes if I hadn't managed to calm the brutish beast down with a squeaky toy in the form of a plastic hamburger.

Look into his eyes. Pure evil, I kid you not.


I've never seen anything like him. He only eats fresh road kill. He drinks Jack Daniels and smokes unfiltered cigarettes. Toronto Animal Services had to build a special armour plated cage just to contain him because his claws go through cinder block like it's warm butter. His hair is so bristly, you can use him to scour that cast iron fry pan coated in burnt sugar and molasses that's been sitting on the back porch for the last six months. Everything about him sends chills up my spine.

Good thing he's getting neutered.


Update (Feb. 12): I'm told the little pup may have been adopted already. Please be sure to contact TAS if you are interested in this guy before heading out to the shelter.

The best way to check on the adoption status of this demon dog is to visit Toronto Animal Services or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter, if you dare.

    Oh Fred!Never stop writing this stuff!

  6. Fred, it's time for a few *ugly* pictures! I'm wearin' out my shades dealing with all this cute! And demon cute is *still* cute, okay? Surely there are some ugly dogs in the shelter? If not, maybe some lizards? A snake? The butt end of a degu?

    I'm thrilled this vicious little guy probably has a home already. He's the cutest, adorable (vicious) baby I've ever seen.

    What a doll!!!!

A request

The reason for this blog is to help get specific dogs adopted from TAS but equally important is to try to normalize the idea of shelter dogs being just as good and just as desirable as any other dogs including those which are regularly merchandised by backyard breeders, puppy millers and those few remaining pet store owners who still feel a need to sell live animals. The single greatest stigma shelter animals still face is the belief that shelter animals are substandard animals. Anyone who has had enough experience with shelter animals knows this is untrue but the general public hasn't had the same experiences you've had. They see a nice dog photo in a glossy magazine and too many of them would never think of associating that dog with a dog from a shelter. After all, no one abandons perfectly good dogs, right? Unfortunately, as we all know, perfectly good dogs are abandoned all the time.

The public still too often associates shelter dogs with images of beat up, sick, dirty, severely traumatized animals and while we definitely sometimes see victims such as these, they are certainly not the majority and, regardless, even the most abused animals can very often be saved and made whole again.

Pound Dogs sometimes discusses the sad histories some of the dogs have suffered. For the most part, though, it tries to present the dogs not as victims but as great potential family members. The goal is to raise the profiles of animals in adoption centers so that a potential pet owner sees them as the best choice, not just as the charity choice.

So, here's the favour I'm asking. Whenever you see a dog picture on these pages you think is decent enough, I'd like you to consider sharing it on Facebook or any other social media sites you're using (I know many of you do this already and thank you for that). And when you share it, please mention that the dog in the photo is a shelter dog like so many other shelter dogs waiting for a home. If we can get even five percent of the pet buying public to see shelter dogs differently, to see how beautiful they are and how wonderful they are, and to consider shelter dogs as their first choice for a new family member, we can end the suffering of homeless pets in this country.
