Jayla (ACCT name) is a beautiful 1-2 year-old female pitbull mix that was found earlier this month in Clark Park (it’s possible that she had been abandoned.) She was taken to ACCT Philly and is now officially up for adoption (or foster) at ACCT shelter.
Jayla is already spayed, so she is one-paw-out the door, ready to go home with you. Jayla is a gorgeous dog and you will be the envy of your friends, walking this cutie pie down the street! She is very playful and full of spunk and would love to go for long walks or maybe a jog! Jayla also seems to be interested in meeting other dogs. A doggy friend for Jayla would be great! She is a sweet young girl who would love for you to show her the good life! So come into ACCT and meet her today!
If you or someone you know would be interested in adopting or fostering her please contact ACCT shelter (267-385-3800 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Jayla’s ID is 19795850.

She’s a furry bouncing ball of shih tzu energy that tears up your favorite jacket for fun. He’s a cranky little bulldog sweetheart who plops on the couch while watching TV.
Don’t lie: your pooch is the apple of your eye, warts and all. But does your zany best friend have the chomps to take a bite out of pollution and serve as the Philadelphia Water Department’s 2013 Philly Water’s Best Friend Spokesdog? The Water Department is currently looking for two dogs from University City and Filter Square, respectively, to represent the city as ambassadors for “living the eco-friendly dog life.” West Philly dog owners who think their canine has what it takes have until May 31 to enter their sweet ol’ pup into this year’s competition, which will focus on Schuylkill River cleanup efforts.
The winning dogs will be chosen at a judged pageant-style community competition, and receive a $200 gift to a local business, toy and cookie prize pack, and have their adorable face gracing promotional materials. As a Philly Water’s Best Friend spokesanimal, the winning dogs and their caretakers will be required to attend at least three community affairs in 2013-2014, and distribute information on the importance of picking up pet waste.
The Water Department has crowned four spokesdogs in East Falls, Northern Liberties, Queen Village, Manayunk and Roxborough since 2011. Last year’s competition drew over 7,000 voters for more than 50 doggie candidates.

Update (5/20): Emily was found with the help of West Philly Local readers. Her owner, Matthew, would like to thank everyone who called.
Meet Buddy! This handsome fella is looking for a family of his own, and boy would he be a great addition! He’s about 5 years old, but he still has plenty of love and energy to share. He loves to run and play, and loves fetching sticks.
Buddy is very affectionate and absolutely loves being around people as well as other dogs. He has played with some new doggie friends at the shelter and did great. He is also terrific with people. He loves to goof around and show lots of affection. If you have any children under 10, please bring them along to meet him. If you have any resident dogs, please bring them along as well to make sure they’re a good match. Come meet Buddy today, you’ll be glad you did!
Here’s a video of Buddy learning the hoop trick.

A neighbor, Becky, is looking for the owner of this male Pomeranian found around 46th and Baltimore Ave on Saturday, Apr. 27. He had no collar, no tags, and no microchip when he was found. He is not fixed. Becky says that the dog is well behaved and house trained and he loves to eat buttered toast. He appears to have a back or hind leg problem because it’s hard for him to walk upstairs. Becky said she would take him to the vet to get a check up.
Becky has been taking car of the dog since last Sunday and will eventually start looking for a good home for him, if she can’t find the owner soon.
UPDATE (10:30 pm): We are happy to report that after this publication the dog’s owner was found. We received this update from Becky: “The Pomeranian, named Nelson, is now back with his family! They are overjoyed.”
