When This Bulldog Puppy Talked Back To His Mommy I Nearly Fell Out Of My Chair! Adorable!

The big mama bulldog is named Patches and her baby is named Elvis. Wee Elvis was born with a cleft lip so he had a permanent sneer. Is it any wonder his humans decided to name him after rock royalty, Elvis Presley? He became a very strong, energetic, and physically active Bulldog. Here, he sasses his mama in the most adorable way ever. Can you believe the little sounds that came out of him? So stinkin’ cute! Please be sure to SHARE this little cutie with all of your friends.


Meet Garfi, The World’s Angriest Cat

If Tardar Sauce (better known as Grumpy Cat) is grumpy, then Garfi the Persian cat is something closer to “angry” or “plotting to murder you.” Imagine waking up to that stony glare at 2AM with him sitting on your chest. Creepy, huh?

Though he may look like a scheming villain, Garfi is actually one of the sweetest cats ever. Just look how he puts up with everything his owner plans for him! He’s a great model, and his similarity to Garfield is indeed striking. Garfi lives in Turkey with his owner Hulya Ozkok, surrounded by a big family and his other cat friends. We bet that Garfi is actually a joy to be around – such a fluffy and angry-looking cat must be fun to cheer up.

Remember Michael Vick's Disgusting Dogfighting Ring? Well, 7 Years Later... Check this Out.

In 2007, a group of dogs were saved from organized torture in NFL player Michael Vick's backyard. His dog fighting ring was liberated and he was put in jail for his atrocities. Many people believed that the dogs found at his house weren't fit to live in homes, because of their killer instincts. That just isn't true, and the Best Friends Animal Society agrees. They took in 22 dogs, which became known as "Vicktory Dogs." They were saved from that horrible place... and found loving, amazing homes. They found 'victory' in love. Here are their stories.

Many people believed the dogs were too "damaged" to find proper homes.

Those rescued pooches proved everyone wrong. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary took in 22 dogs and set out to prove that these dogs could be turned around.

1.) Cherry: Cherry used to fight, but now he attends events and helps other abused animals rehabilitate. He was on “Dogtown” and transformed from a tough dog into a lover, friends with everyone he meets.

2.) Georgia: This dog surprised her new mom, Amy, when she brought her into the home. Amy didn’t know just how quickly Georgia would adapt to a loving, domesticated life. Georgia passed away in 2013.

3.) Halle: No one should give up on rescued dogs just because of their past. Halle now lives with two dog brothers and constantly plays with them. She wags her tail, frolics and “play fights” - all without incident. She is truly a lovely dog.

4.) Handsome Dan: When Dan was first rescued, he was very skittish and fearful. Now, he is warm and trusting. He even acts as a perfectly behaved babysitter for his human baby sister, who arrived in 2010. Not many people realize how loving pit bulls can be.

5.) Little Red: For 5 years, Little Red was used as a “bait dog.” “Bait” animals are used to test a dog’s fighting skills, and are frequently mauled in the process. Once Red was rescued, it took her a while to recover… and now she is blissfully happy.

6.) Oliver: When this dog was brought home, he had no fear. He was so willing to let his new family love him, even though in his original evaluation it was said that he was very fearful of people. Oliver would jump on his mom Erika’s lap and shower her with kisses.

7.) Squeaker: Even though Squeaker was involved in a vicious dog fighting ring, you’d never know it. Now, she lovingly lives with her family and 6 additional dogs, who all get along together.

8.) Mel: Mel’s new dad, Richard Hunter, was a radio show host in Dallas back in 2007. He reported on the dog fighting ring and eventually became emotionally attached to the animals. When he had an opportunity to adopt one of the animals, he jumped at the chance and went to the Best Friends sanctuary in Utah. Now, Mel and Richard live happily together.

9.) Oscar: Oscar’s mom, Rachel, didn’t mean to adopt a Vicktory dog, she just wanted a pit bull. But adopting Oscar was one of the best decisions she made. She not only gave him a new home, but supports other rescued dogs by interacting with the community.

Help the ASPCA raise dog fighting awareness by sharing this article. No dogs are "natural killers," with vicious instincts. Humans teach them those barbaric behaviors... and humans can put an end to it.
