Adopt Me! Help Hazel Complete Her Transformation

Originally posted 08/29/2014 10:00 AM

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 Hazel, a 3-year-old hound mix who has made a massive transformation over the past few months.

When the pup arrived at The Simon Foundation in Bloomfield, Connecticut, she was emaciated, hairless and too weak to stand – obviously a victim of neglect. She was covered with flea dirt, had pressure sores all over her body from laying on a hard surface, and the pads of her feet were raw.

As far as pooches go, he's about as close to perfect (ahem, paw-fect) as one can get.

But that's not why Jiff has landed a spot in the latest Guinness World Records book, which they're calling the most comprehensive collection of facts, feats and achievements ever compiled. (It's also Guinness World Records's 60th anniversary.)

The L.A.-based Pomeranian is actually the fastest dog on two paws, having reached 10 meters on his hind legs in 6.56 seconds and 5 meters on his front paws in 7.76 seconds. See him in action below!

When editors of the book first set eyes on the fluffy pup, they did a double take.

It's a plot plucked from a soap-opera script.

Displeased with her day-to-day life, Ai Hin concocts a plan to fake a pregnancy in a desperate plea for more attention – and treats! (Bwahahahaha.)

On Tuesday, experts at China's Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding revealed that they caught on to Ai Hin the panda's scheme – dun, dun, dun! – and canceled a live broadcast they were planning of the cub's birth, which would have been the world's first.

World's Oldest Wombat Is a 29-Year-Old Virgin

We have Steve Carell's next comedy vehicle all squared away.

Meet Patrick, the world's oldest living wombat, a virgin, who celebrates his 29th birthday this month.

Chatter about the chaste wombat, who lives at Australia's Ballarat Wildlife Park, ramped up this week when Australia.com's Facebook page posted a message in honor of Patrick's birthday on Sunday.

"Happy Birthday Patrick the Wombat! This 29-year-old is the world's oldest living wombat. Given that Patrick has never had children, or any partners in general, probably makes him the oldest living wombat virgin as well! Congrats mate!"

One time, our dogs only partially chewed up our shoes and didn't totally hog the bed at night. We were quite pleased.

But then we met Millie, and everything changed. Now we're not all that impressed. You see, Millie helps her owners carry groceries, door-to-door from the car to the house. (Watch the video above.)

You can play fetch with a dog. You can cuddle on the couch with a cat. But can either race through the air alongside you as you zoom through the streets of a picturesque Greek island?

The owner of the YouTube account waterskizone is helping the world realize the benefits of parrot ownership through this video of his macaw, Vito, racing him as he drives his scooter down a road in Paros, Greece. Though it was uploaded a year ago, the video is currently making the rounds online, grabbing the attention of anyone who can appreciate the novelty of a guy racing his pet parrot.
