This is the dynamic duo.
Let me introduce you to Edith (fawn) and Bart (dark brown).
Edith and Bart are the most recent fosters brought into our household. They're quite the pair.
The duo are two of 200 dogs that were surrendered to HSUS early last month after authorities raided a property in Ohio. The owner surrendered the dogs to authorities.
The dogs obviously came from less-than-ideal circumstances but are showing few signs of any long-term problems.
Bart is a little shy when on his own, but LOVES other dogs and realy perks up when other dogs are around.
Edith is a happy-go-lucky dog that doesn't know a stranger -- loving all people and dogs.
As a pair they're quite amusing.
They'll be up for adoption soon -- along with some 200 other dogs that were surrendered during this raid that are with various rescues around the country. The raid also illustrates a changing attitude at HSUS about ' pit bulls' that come from raids such as this. Just 18 months ago, HSUS's official policy would have been to kill all of these dogs -- including Edith and Bart. In this particular case, they actively evaluated all of the dogs and have been working hard with other organizations to try to find placements for all of the dogs.
This is certainly a great step for HSUS (and for the dogs). It is a great and lasting legacy from the Mike Vick case that there is a realization that many of these dogs can be rehabilitated and function nicely in homes.
And Bart and Edith will need very little rehabilitation.
