Ralphie is 5 years old and his former family called him "a 91 pound lap dog."
Say hello to Ralphie! Ralph was adopted from the Animal Rescue League and then turned into another shelter who transferred him back to the ARL. He is now 5 years old and his former family told us that Ralph is a 91 pound lap dog. He got along well with other dogs and children. His family also told the ARL staff that Ralph was mostly housebroken, but that he had an occasional accident. Ralph apparently did not like to be left alone. He would try to escape, bark or chew inappropriate items when left alone. The ARL reccommends a home where Ralph would not need to be left alone for long. They also recommend a strong crate and lots of great chew toys for Ralph when he needs to be left alone. Ralph knows quite a few commands and walks …

You can call him Leon for short.
Meet Leonidas, a.k.a. Leon! He's a cute 11-month old-Pit Bull Terrier mix who came to Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh as a stray. Like most dogs his age, Leon is very active and could benefit from continued obedience training. Based on observation, he may be house-trained. He loved being with our volunteers getting his pictures taken, and will most likely be a very affectionate companion. Leonidas would be good for a novice owner and folks with an active lifestyle. That cute little face is hard to resist! For inquiries about Leon, contact his volunteer friend Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org. Leon's adoption fee is $115. _______________________ Plum-Oakmont Patch is on Facebook and on Twitter. Don't forget to sign up for our daily email …

This Shar Pei was left due to landlord issues.
Meet Lil' Ling Ling—a unique Shar Pei mix in need of a "furever" home. The 2-year-old was surrendered to the Animal Rescue League due to landlord issues. Her owner said Ling Ling loves car rides and other dogs and cats. She's also house trained. Ling Ling had eye surgery and, as a result, her eyelashes were growing inward and causing some irritation, so Animal Rescue League staff members recommend a home with older children. One staff member recently took Ling Ling to an adoption event. The staff member said Ling Ling was well behaved. Ling Ling was a bit shy, possibly due to her sore eye, but allowed people to pet her and gave out a lot of kisses. "We think she will make a wonderful companion with the right family with previous dog …
