If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool with your pets name and neighborhood. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.

After the jump found dog

“Dear PoP,

While out running on Monday I came across a very sweet dog at the bottom of Meridian Hill park. She was calm and very friendly. She had no collar and no leash but was obviously well cared for. I gave her a pat on the head and scratched her ears which prompted her to follow me up the hill to my apartment. I spent about 5 hours trying to find a home or at least a temporary place for her until either her owner came forward or someone else could adopt her. I even took her to City Paws to have her scanned for a chip, but no luck. I also walked her around the vicinity hoping someone was looking for her. I started to suspect that she was dumped in the park and no one was going to be looking for her.

Anyway, the dog is probably about 3 years old, a female and has an excellent temperament. She appears to be trained to walk on and off the leash. I took her in my apartment for a bit and she immediately became my best friend as she laid down on the floor and went to sleep with her head on my feet. Believe it or not she didn’t even try to kill the cat. Although, the the cat did try to kill her. That’s why I ultimately had to have animal control come get her. My heart broke as they took her away.

She’s currently at the NY Ave shelter. Her ID is A1300513 and they’ve named her Kelly. Unless I reclaim her or someone goes into adopt her specifically she goes through a five day evaluation process and then with hope up for adoption. Anyway, I highly recommend someone go get this dog.”
