It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Castle, an adorable pit bull who is approximately 1 year old.
Here's a way to really celebrate National Pit Bull Awareness Day on Oct. 25: adopt this regal lady, who came to Animal Care & Control of N.Y.C. (AC&C) as a stray found in Queens.
Communications associate Alexandra Silver tells PEOPLE that the black-and-white cutie is very social and pleasantly greets every single person she meets. "She isn't just friendly with humans; she also seems to enjoy the company of other dogs," Silver says.
The young, energetic pup would do great with an owner who has as much pep as she does. Want to go for an impromptu run in the park? Count Castle in. And, if you'd like to curl up on the couch and watch Game of Thrones afterward, she's happy to oblige.
In honor of Pit Bull Awareness Day, anyone who adopts a pit bull or pit mix from AC&C will receive a free New York Pit Bull Appreciation Society BarkBox, a package containing toys and treats for big dogs. Proud adopters will also get New York Pit Bull Appreciation Society pins.
What can we say? A genius idea is a genius idea. It's just surprising that it took anyone this long to realize that Dachshund's Creek is the Dawson's Creek parody the world deserves.

Lua, the pit bull mix of football star Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen, costars with her dapper dad in his new marketing campaign for UGG Australia, and the dog is definitely bringing fashion forward in the cutest way possible.

Lesson learned: Zombies do not faze Maymo the Lemon Beagle.
Perhaps you've heard of Maymo. This dog gained online fame for videos showing his big reactions to mundane things – the lemon that gave him his nickname, for example, or a head of cabbage that he decided was the most precious thing ever.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Rascal and Jersey, two pups who prove that two is definitely better than one.
The Australian shepherd mixes were surrendered together to the Wisconsin Humane Society in Milwaukee because their former owner couldn't find a place that would allow them both. The shelter can't bear to split these two, who are the best of friends, so they are hoping to place them in a loving home where they can spend forever together.
"Both adore attention and their personalities perfectly complement one another," says Angela Speed, vice president of communications for the shelter. "Rascal is adventurous and outgoing, while Jersey is sweet, submissive and exceedingly affectionate. When offered treats, Rascal executes his tricks with precision and focus, while Jersey drops to the ground and attempts to become the cutest sweetheart she can imagine – and she always succeeds!"
