Tanith, Rhodesian Ridgeback (4 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “‘Tanith’ – as if you were saying ‘tennis’ with a lisp. She was attacked by a porcupine twice in one day while Upstate. We pulled out all the quills and then she got attacked again the next day.”

Sassy, Heeler mix (5 m/o), Bryant Park, New York, NY • "She was found in a dumpster on Navajo Nation, one of the country's largest Indian reservations – a Rez-dog. Her other two siblings didn't make it. Due to a congenital hip defect she has not been able to use her rear legs, but that hasn’t stopped her. She doesn’t know she’s handicapped. The team at @bideawee brought her to NYC where she is getting to see the best orthopedists and neurologists in the country. There will be a period of physical therapy and then she will be ready to move into her forever home with some very lucky family. Stay tuned.” @underdogrescuerehab
