Izzy
Age: Puppy / Breed: Terrier Mix / Sex: Female / Rescue: Save The Animals Foundation
"Izzy takes the prize for our longest-distance rescue, taken in off the streets of Bahrain by a U.S. military family. Izzy must have recognized them as her ticket to a brighter future because she ran over to their two pups and followed them into the car! They fostered her for a few months until they could send her across the sea to the safety of Save The Animals Foundation, where she is eagerly awaiting her forever family. If you are interested in Izzy, please fill out an application at www.STAF.org."

Pogo
Age: 4 years old / Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
"Pogo was found alone in a park with a badly broken leg, which would require an amputation. Living life with 3 legs has not stopped her. While we don't know exactly what led her to be at the park that day, her past experiences have made her a little shy and uncertain of strangers at first. But her nervous demeanor will immediately melt away to a happy smile and butt wiggles once she gets to know you. If you are interested in Pogo, please fill out an application at louieslegacy.org."
