Adopt Me! Chuck's Resilience Will Inspire You

Originally posted 07/03/2014 01:30 PM

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Chuck, a young pit bull who has overcome difficult hurdles in his short life.

This past Christmas, the pooch was found tied to a fence at the Asphalt Green recreational campus in New York City. Unable to walk normally, he could only drag himself by his front legs.

He was brought to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals by two good Samaritans. Radiographs revealed severe joint disease in both of his hips due to old fractures, and, as a result, he had lost almost all the muscle mass in his hind legs.

Watch: This Cat Took Some Serious Chill Pills

We'll have what this cat is having.

It's the middle of the week, and this kitty could not care less. Instead of fretting over World Cup brackets, unanswered emails and Supreme Court decisions, this feline is content just sitting in a chair and straight chilling.

The video above is brought to us by calm cat connoisseur and YouTube user shironekoshiro, the same feline whisperer who impressed the Internet with Basket Cat and Stacking Cat. This leads us to wonder, how does shironekoshiro keep their kitties so relaxed? Catnip hypnosis? Reggae music? Aromatherapy? Whatever it is, it would be nice if they shared.

Dog Returns Missing Wedding Ring That He Swallowed

Diamonds are a dog's best friend, too.

It took six years, but Lois Matykowski's missing diamond wedding ring finally reappeared when her 10-year-old Rottweiler mix, Tucker, swallowed a popsicle stick this month, according to ABC News.

The Wisconsin pooch – known affectionately to his family as the "food burglar" – wolfed down a popsicle and its stick, which prompted Matykowski to call her veterinarian.
