<p>Django survived a close call Wednesday evening.</p>
<p>The 6-week-old pit bull was not breathing when Anderson city firefighters found him inside a burning house on Marion Street, which is near Williamston Road.</p>
<p>But Django's tiny eyes opened as the puppy emerged from the smoke-filled structure cradled in a firefighter's arms.</p>
<p>Another firefighter hustled to a truck to retrieve a medical kit. Then Anderson Fire Department engineer Bruce Reeves fitted a miniature oxygen mask from the kit over Django's nose. The puppy's owner, Wesley Maddox, stood nearby watching and worrying.</p>
<p>After Django started to come around, Reeves handed the puppy and the oxygen mask to Maddox.</p>
<p>Django was home alone when the fire started in one of the house's two bedrooms. Maddox arrived moments before his puppy was rescued.</p>
<p>The fire, which was reported by neighbors shortly before 5:30 p.m., caused moderate damage to the home where Maddox has lived for eight years.</p>
<p>Fifteen firefighters put out the blaze in less than five minutes, said Michael Guest, a battalion chief with city's fire department.</p>
<p>Guest said it appeared that faulty wiring sparked the fire.</p>
<p> </p> <p>Brimfield Police Department are looking for the dog owner who dumped a deaf puppy inside a box on the side of the road. The puppy was found on Tallmadge Road, near the Rootstown border in Brimfield, Ohio.</p>
<p>Police Chief David Oliver posted the puppy’s picture on the department’s popular Facebook page  The female puppy appears to be a boxer. Oliver said he believes the puppy was abandoned because it is deaf.</p>
<p>"We figured the puppy was not ‘lost’ simply because ‘lost’ dogs are not left in a cardboard box on the side of a busy highway. To say I am aggravated about this would be a greatly minimizing," Oliver wrote.</p>
<p>"I would imagine that someone either bought the puppy or was given the puppy and after realizing the puppy is deaf, did a thing which lacks extreme character: they put the puppy in a box and dropped it off.  I am not an overly-sensitive sap. Dropping a dog on the side of the road is not the crime of the century, even if the dog is very young and deaf. I will say that I can tell a person’s character pretty well by seeing how they treat animals. Whoever did this lacks character, period."</p>
<p>He added, "If you are the person who dropped this puppy off, I am willing to speak with you about your error in judgment, if you call us first. If we have to find you, the time for talking will be with a judge."</p>
<p>The puppy is now at One of a Kind pet rescue. When the puppy is old enough, she will be spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed prior to adoption.

<h3>Miles Story:</h3>
<p>Miles’s story has turned from a heart breaking tragedy into a miracle. Thanks to the incredible outpouring of our community to help this little boy, his story will have a happy ending and he now has the second chance that he so deserves.  We at PAWSaz have been helping animals in similar situations by reaching out to the special needs cases, the medically needy and other animals who just need the same second chance that Miles is getting.  We strive to help many more animals like Miles!</p>
<p>Our goal is to build a much needed permanent animal sanctuary in the East Valley, where we can provide a safe haven for animals at risk of unnecessary euthanasia, provide medical care for animals at risk and improve animal rights by increasing community awareness of animal welfare issues.  As such, we are looking for at least 5 acres on which to build the following:</p>
<ul>
<li>A cage free intake area to use as a temporary location in urgent situations for animals at risk of homelessness or euthanasia but are still adoptable.  They can live here until we can find their new permanent home.</li>
<li>A designated area for the permanent residents who will live out their lives at the sanctuary in open housing areas (structure for seniors, structure for those with handicaps, structure for cats, etc).</li>
<li>A medical clinic where we can provide low or no cost veterinary services to animal owners who cannot afford vet care and would otherwise need to surrender their animal to the pound or elsewhere.  For those who are unable to pay, we will have a “pay it forward” program where they can instead volunteer time at the sanctuary.</li>
<li>A classroom for community animal welfare education.</li>
</ul>
<p>Because we are a 501(c)(3) charity dependent on donations, we would like to have consistent revenue streams which we could generate income from, such as an onsite café & thrift store, by offering equine assisted therapy sessions (Dr. Eva is certified through EAGALA), and depending on the size of the property, by offering public horse boarding, public dog training classes to name just a few.</p>
<h3>Miles History:</h3>
<p>Miles, a pit bull puppy, was 8 or 9 weeks old when he arrived at a local animal hospital on March 22, 2012. He was screaming in pain in the waiting room where he sat with a home-made splint consisting of a coat hanger and gauze. The puppy was in such serious pain that the doctor rushed to the waiting room and immediately administered pain killers and a sedative.</p>
<p>The breeder/owner, later identified as Lyman Kenneth Morkunas and arrested by Maricopa County Sheriff’s Animal Crimes unit detectives on May 4, 2012 (MCSO Booking# P865172), had attempted to repair the lacerations with a needle and thread and GLUE (imagine that pain – not to mention that they were not sterile, of course, and creating more infection). Miles was in such bad shape when he was brought to the animal hospital that after the initial examination, euthanasia was considered. During the course of the examination, the attending doctor and technicians decided to give him a chance and contacted us at PAWS to see if we would take him under our wings.</p>
<p>Miles was immediately placed on IV fluids and IV antibiotics.</p>
<p>Radiographs revealed multiple, serious and severe fractures. Miles had a fracture in his right forearm, involving both the radius and ulna. This fracture has since been stabilized with a splint and looks like it’s going to heal in the next few weeks.</p>
<p>Miles’ left arm had multiple fractures – compound, not only were the radius and ulna fractured, but also the elbow was in pieces and sticking out of the skin – and was infected. Luckily, with daily bandage changes, the wound has healed and closed over, but the fracture in the elbow will require specialized surgery with a board certified surgeon and will not heal with a splint alone.  We are hoping to raise the necessary funds for him so we can save this leg (the only other option will be amputation). The surgery to save his leg will cost between $3,000 and $5,000.</p>
<p>All lacerations and punctures have healed. Miles is striving in his foster home, where he lives with two Chihuahuas, a Bichon and several other pit bulls and cats. Miles is now the happiest little camper and will hopefully be available for adoption soon.</p>
<p> </p> A rescue operation was launched after a 12-week-old puppy fell into the River Tyne this morning.Fire crews were called when the German Shepherd chased a bird and slipped into the water on the Gateshead side of river, underneath the Redheugh Bridge.Firefighters from Gateshead and Fossway stations arrived at around 8.30am to find the puppy struggling in the river.The dog’s owner coaxed the pet out of the water onto the muddy bank which allowed fire crews to reach the dog and carry it to safety.The dog was not injured and returned home with its owner. <p>They look jolly cute now but give these German shepherd puppies a few months and they may well be putting the fear of God into a burglar or a football yob. </p>
<p><span>The seven-week-old pups are the next generation of canine crime-fighters for West Midlands Police. <br /></span></p>
<p><span>The cute and fluffy dogs are being taught to be 'obsessed with toys' to assist their training for this very serious job.</span></p>

<p><span>The 26 dogs will be placed with volunteers in just two weeks to help them become socialised and accustomed to different environments.</span></p>
<p><span>They will then go through several assessments to see if they are suitable, before being paired up with an officer to start training in earnest at just 15 months old.</span></p>

</div>
<p><span>Breed Scheme Manager, Pc Terry Arnett, said: 'The dogs we train are key members of our team so we want to ensure we do the best by them from the very start and we urgently need to find suitable homes for these puppies as a vital part of that process.</span></p>
<p><span>'We are here to train the dogs and support successful volunteers throughout the programme.</span></p>
<p><span>'All we ask is that the puppies are played with in a constructive way and that someone is generally at home for most of the day.'</span></p>
<p><span>Anyone over 18 can apply to be a puppy walker, if they have the time to look after the dog and provide plenty of play time to allow it to develop within a happy, carefree environment.</span></p>
<p><span>At six months old, they will return to the force's Dog Unit at Balsall Common, Birmingham., where they will be assessed to their suitability for police work.</span></p>
