Miley Cyrus has adopted a new puppy, adding to her impressive family of rescued dogs. The pop singer introduced the puppy, named Bean, with a series of adorable tweets and pics. She also shouted out to Saving Spot Dog Rescue, the Los Angeles rescue where she adopted Bean. According to Cyrus, Bean is female and a "chihuahua mix of some type." Cyrus' latest adoption isn't surprising. If you're feeling a sense of deja vu, it may be because this is the second puppy Cyrus has adopted in as many months. In November, Cyrus brought ...

A kayaker who likes to film his fishing outings for YouTube captured himself rescuing a dog swimming far out from the shore. As you can see in the video above, the YouTuber found the swimming dog distressed, terrified, and injured. The man pulled the dog from the water and brought him to shore, then to a vet where the animal was identified through its microchip. Unfortunately, the events leading to the dog, Barney, swimming out to sea are tragic ones. Barney's owner, Donna Chen, was walking him when a drunk driver lost control of her vehicle and struck Chen and Barney on the sidewalk. Barney fled the scene in panic and Chen was killed. Thankfully the kind-hearted kayaker rescued Barney and...

No one with a shred of decency likes to see an animal harmed or abused, but everyone likes to see an abused animal rescued and rehabilitated. That's why this video generated a lot of buzz yesterday on Reddit. It tells the story of Judith, a beautiful dog who was horrifically abused and neglected for most her life. It's from the Animal Advocates Society in Vancouver, and it tells the story of Judith, an unfortunate dog who spent the first 10 years of her life chained in a muddy backyard. Be warned, the first minute and a half of this video is very difficult to watch, as it depicts the deplorable conditions under which Judith was kept. But it goes on to show how the Animal Advocates Society re...

Caruba, Flickr Ask proud pet owners and they'll tell you that bringing their furry friends into their lives was one of the best decisions they ever made. Pry a little further, however, and you might find that the decision to bring home a pound puppy or shelter kitty also upset their lives for a period of days, weeks, or months because they weren't properly prepared. For reasons that are usually no fault of the dogs or cats themselves, adoptive pet parents sometimes find that they've made a serious miscalculation as to whether they really have the time, patience or desire to regularly change litter or scoop poop. To help prospective pet owners avoid this adoption pitfall, we've put togeth...

We've heard of dogs rescuing dogs and dolphins rescuing people (well, Dick Van Dyke, anyway), but this story is truly one to remember. Turbo, an 11-year-old Doberman, has had enough doggie paddling to last a lifetime after a frightening night spent in a canal near his home in Marco Island, Fla. Fortunately for the waterlogged dog, the sea held some good Samaritans in a surprising form -- dolphins! It was the persistent splashing of the dolphins that wouldn't leave Turbo's side that drew the attention of a neighbor, according to WBBH-TV, and may have saved the dog's life. The neighbor called 911, and then jumped in the shallow water to rescue the paddling pooch....

Animal Rescue League of Boston Gibson, a 4-year-old Sheltie mix, is back home safe and sound after spending the better part of a week freezing her tail off on a giant icy pond with steep, narrow sides, topped with a chain link fence. Authorities were first made aware of Gibson's predicament on Sunday, when concerned dog lovers called to report that a dog appeared to be trapped on Cambridge's Fresh Pond, according to the Boston Globe. When a rescue team arrived on Sunday, they found a weary, elusive pup that workers were unable to corral. "The dog kind of reverted to a semiwild, self-preservation state,'' Animal Rescue League manager Brian O'Connor told the Boston Globe. "They're not like ...
