We're holding an adoption event Saturday September 20th from 11-3pm at Canine Culture, 8110 Hampson Street. In addition to meeting our gang of adoptable dogs, you'll be able to enjoy a selection of Little Rascals movies and free lemonade!
Shiloh was found completely hairless earlier this summer. Now he's grown up into a Catahoula/beagle and he's ready for a home. You can meet him at Dag's House or at our adoption event on Saturday September 20th at Canine Culture, 8110 Hampson Street, from 11-3pm.

This morning as I walked my own dogs through the lower Ninth, I came across a young man on a stoop with a blue pit bull puppy. "Do you want another one?" he asked. And then he proceeded to tell me the mysterious story of the dog we now call Kaspar Hauser. Since the power is still out, this man slept with his door ajar--and when he woke in the morning he found Kaspar curled up next to him in bed. He said he wanted to keep the dog, but knew he wouldn't be able to take proper care of him. He said he'd already had someone offer to buy him. I told him I'd take good care of the dog, but when I returned to fetch him, but the dog and the man were gone. I left a note offering a reward, and a few hours later he called me.
You can read about the real Kasper Hauser here.
If anyone would like to help with this influx of dogs, even small contributions are meaningful.

Bandit was on the street with Harold and Maude, and after picking them up, I returned to find him waiting for me. Like Harold and Maude, he is heartworm positive. He was also so infested with fleas that they could be seen from several yards away. We named him Bandit, after Vicki Hearne's dog.

While the storm wasn't as bad as we feared, there are still lots of dogs running loose in New Orleans. This morning I picked up a black female English (I think?) bulldog and with her a white male bulldog. The female was in particularly bad shape, with bite marks on one side of her face. The male was wearing a tag that belonged to a black lab that was lost during Katrina. They are both heartworm positive. Now I'm going back to see if I can catch the white male pit who was roaming with them. If anyone can help with these dogs, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. More later--Ken
