Give the dog a bone.
Good news! Our little foster dog Ralphie has found a home! He’ll be living in the nearby city of Belo Horizonte with a good family that recently lost their family dog due to old age. We are confident in them and know Ralphie will now have the family he so deserves.
Thank you all for your help and support!

For those following the saga of our nameless puppy – now going by the name of Ralphie – here’s a little update. First off, the new owner for him fell through, so we are working to find the young dog (maybe 1-year-old) another.
As it turns out, his former canine companion that was killed by a car was his mother. He most definitely has a strong sense of sadness in him, and after two days here has yet to make any real effort to play. He does, however, get extremely happy around my wife and I, and has shown nothing but love for people. He is quite skittish around our other dogs, with the exception of Max – our 14-year-old Boston Terrier. The two now do some serious napping together.
We’ve made a Facebook page for Ralphie which can be found here. With five dogs already, it’s just not the best idea for us to keep him. He needs his own family. But he will stay with us as long as it takes until we find a proper and loving family for him.

Here’s a little dog we got from our neighbors who didn’t want him and mistreated him. They had previously owned him and a female dog, who was his faithful companion. The female dog was killed by a car recently, and we decided to try and make sure the same didn’t happen to him.
We already have a home for him – a family with three pre-teens who are thrilled to have a happy, friendly young dog. He’ll get the love he deserves. For tonight, however, he’s hanging out here.

A story of a dog’s dedication to its family, following their deaths last week in Brazil. Translated from Fohla.com:
The former street-dog Caramelo helped rescue the bodies of its owners, whose were killed during last week’s rains, then did not want to leave the makeshift grave of his owner.
It lived with its owner, Cristina Cesário Maria Santana, and three other people in a house of the Caleme quarter, one of the most devastated in Teresópolis. The house was destroyed and the family died. The dog escaped, but dug for them until finding them.
When the rescue teams arrived, Caramelo guided them to the bodies. Caramelo was rescued, but did not want to leave the grave of its owner and now he is very depressed and needy.
The deaths due to the rains are a true tragedy, but this is more or less an annual occurrence in Brazil, where millions live in sub-standard housing with scant building regulations. When the rains come every year at this time of year, people die as a result. This year, the count is at more than 600 lost lives.
With the strongest economy in its history, and two major international events (The 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics) coming to the nation, it’s time for Brazil to protect its citizens with the same passion and dedication as Caramelo. Because the rain will always come, but the deaths can be prevented.
Update: Caramelo has a new home.
