(Several very quick adoptions happened recently so I'm going to be catching up, over the next few days, on some overdue posts of dogs who have already found homes, like this guy.)

Sunny, aka Holy Terror, is about 10% evil. I know you're looking at all the cute photos and thinking, "How can that puppy be any amount of evil at all?" but believe you me, do not let his big wide sad brown puppy eyes fool you.

Of course that's not going to stop anyone from adopting him and giving him a good home and hopefully training that evil out of him and then the new owner will show up at TAS South one day with Sunny all grown up and say, "See, there's nothing evil about him," but that won't matter because I will know the truth about Sunny when he was a pup. I know about puppies in general. At least 10% evil.

    I couldn't see the video, it said "This video is private".

    That's too cute! And yes, can totally see the 10% evil behind the cute eyes.

    The video is hilarious and cute. I kept imagining that she'd just dig up the tree and wander around with it trailing behind her.

    I'd say closer to 15% evil. Judging by those paws, she's going to be a big girl! And beautiful!

    Those floppy ears and the way he was attacking that leaf...pure evil! :)

  6. Evil, schmevil. Philosophically (yes, I once read philospohy, hard as that seems to believe now), evil requires intent. Intent requires attention span. It's obvious Sunny has the attention span of an intellectually challenged gnat. If that. He's *such* a puppy! Bet he gives great cuddles...

    Oh boy.... full of energy... I watched the whole video with a knowing smile on my face. But let me inform you all: evil is 5 fox terrier puppies in 50M2 apartment. Oh yeah, they seduce us those pups. But with reason. Lost a patch of my hair but did not regret a second of that crazy litter. Viva sheer puppy joy! Go Sunny!

    I loved all the pics, but the last one demonstrated the 'evil' smile! I'm so happy Sunny is in a nice forever home.

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.
