    ALBANY, Minn. Technically the dog making its way down Forest Avenue is pure German Shorthaired Pointer. But youre forgiven if you conclude a bit of Walmart greeter slipped into River too.

    River is Albanys best known canine.

    Up more driveways than a meter reader, River never misses an opportunity to interact with humans while out on his frequent walks with Herby and Carol Mader.

    A lot of friends, says Leon Stueve after River stopped for the first two visits on a recent day. Hes a friendly dog.

    Kudos on bringing home a rescue dog! It certainly takes a lot of will and determination to rescue a dog from a pet shelter instead of purchasing one. You should be proud of yourself for taking the first step to saving a life despite knowing that you might not have a smooth road ahead.

    Some rescue dogs may have a behavioral problem. When we brought Collie home, we were well aware of this fact and as such, better prepared to help her adapt to...

    It was heartbreaking for her every time she heard a story or saw another animalthat was improperly cared for or abused. She felt powerless despite her achingdesire to change the lives of these...

    Olympic silver medalist, Gus Kenworthy, literally flipped out tonight trying to raise awareness for pet adoption at the San Diego Padres game. Gus was in San Diego to throw out the first pitch along side Tucker, an adorable pup up for adoption from the San Diego Humane Society. And he flipped out! Not only did he nail the first pitch, but he wowed the crowd with an on-field back flip after a successful throw.

    It was all part of Petcos annual Dog Days of Summer event, where Petco invited 500...

    Like something out of a 1970s TV show, a persistent family dog led Niagara-area police to a hiding suspect police say broke into the familys home.

    The dog, a five-year-old German shepherd named Kaylee, led police to a wooded area at the rear of the home where their suspect was trying to hide.

    Without the family dog, we wouldnt have found the guy without a doubt, said Const. Derek Watson of the Niagara Regional Police.

    The family was at a funeral their alarm company alerted them to the break-in....
