Say hello to the cutest dogs of the week!
Fiorenzo, French Bulldog, 5 Years Old
Fun Fact: Although Fio is paralyzed, he’s the most active pup around. This fireball could play fetch for hours!
Did You Know? The first dog wheelchair was invented by Dr. Lincoln Parkes, a World War II veteran who worked as a veterinarian in his 50s and 60s. Parkes, a lover of animals, was adamant about the fact that no animal should be put to sleep just because they can’t walk anymore. Thanks to Dr. Parkes, many paralyzed animals — including pigs, rabbits, cats, dogs and more — can live an almost-normal life with the help of wheels. [Southern Living]
Toffee, Pit Bull Terrier Mix, 1 Year Old (Up For Adoption)
Fun Fact: If Toffee were a human, she’d be a high jump Olympic champion. No matter how high you throw the ball when you’re playing fetch with Toffee, this agile lady will catch it. Toffee is currently up for adoption and is seeking her furever home with a loving human. Find out if Toffee is the right pup for you by learning more here or by contacting the ASPCA!
Did You Know? If you’re looking to enter your dog into an agility contest, consider their breed first. Some pups are naturally more agile than others. Breeds most likely to do well in agility competitions include the border collie, the Jack Russell terrier, the standard poodle, the German shepherd and (surprisingly) the Pembroke Welsh corgi.

Ozzie, Cavapoo, 1 Year Old
Fun Fact: If you spotted Ozzie frolicking in Central Park or hailing a taxi, you’d probably think he was a native New Yorker. But Ozzie was actually born in Australia, where he developed a taste for kangaroo jerky and a rugged personal style not unlike a Hemsworth brother. Ozzie came to New York City to chase his dreams of fame, but he still barks with an accent.
Did You Know? Speaking of accents, have you ever wondered if dogs can understand multiple languages? According to experts, pooches can certainly learn to understand more than one language, but that doesn’t mean they actually know the difference between English, Spanish or German. Instead, they rely on the sounds you make when you’re talking, your inflection, facial expressions and body language and what is expected of them to understand what you’re trying to say — no matter what language you’re speaking in.
