    NC veteran uses stick to stop pit bull attack that killed dog

    An 89-year-old Army veteran said he “had no choice” but to run 100 yards and beat two pit bulls with a stick as they mauled a North Carolina woman after killing his “loving” miniature schnauzer. “I had to,” Dallas Campbell of the rural Enochville community in Rowan County told The Charlotte Observer. “I had to lay down afterward, but I had no choice.” If what he did to save the woman “keeps someone else from getting bit, it was worth it,” he said. Kalee, a “loving” miniature schnauzer, died on Friday, Jan. 7, 2022, a day after she was attacked

    Dog lost in Long Beach found five years later in Tennessee

    Joy awaits cancer survivor Jen Costa in Tennessee. Her Olde English Bulldog, named Azzurra Diamante, lost in Long Beach five years ago, is at a shelter there — more than 1,000 miles away from where she went missing — thanks to some Good Samaritans and the microchip implanted in the pooch. When the Henderson City Animal Rescue contacted Costa, 37, a Wantagh native who now lives in Queens Village, on Monday, she was sitting in a barber chair. “I just started crying right in the chair; the barber had to hand me a tissue,” Costa said Wednesday before her 13-hour

    Dog lost for four months found alive on snowy hillside, reunited with owner

    Rodriguez was on a camping trip in the Lake Tahoe area with four of his friends and his 3-year-old pitbull-mix, Russ. Russ ran away in late August after getting startled by someone, Rodriguez told CNN. He and his friends spent hours looking for Russ and called local shelters to report him missing. The Caldor Fire was responsible for destroying nearly 1,000 structures, including homes and businesses. It also consumed more than 200,000 acres of land near the California-Nevada border. “After months of not hearing back from anyone, I assumed he was in good hands with a different owner,” Rodriguez told

The house appeared to be abandoned, police said, and they could smell animal feces, urine and trash from the outside. A German shepherd and cat were found inside. Troopers said a
