Pit bull puppy rescued, looking for new home

Pit bull puppy rescued, looking for new home

SACRAMENTO, CA - You wouldn't know it at first glance now, but just three days ago, a 4-month-old pit bull was nearly battling for his life.

The director of Chako Pit Bull Rescue in Sacramento, Dawn Capp, says a woman brought the pup to her after he became trapped under a truck and was abandoned by his owner.

"[He's] very lucky to have so little injuries considering what happened to him," says Capp.  

On Friday, witnesses say the pup was sitting in the back of a pick-up truck, parked next to a downtown Sacramento coffee shop. He was tethered by a rope attached to a chain.

Capp said she was told when the driver drove off, the puppy either jumped or fell out of the truck and got caught underneath.  

"The witnesses at the coffee shop all tried to get the driver's attention, yelling 'back up, back up!'" Capp said.

The driver eventually stopped, and witnesses say they had to cut the rope to free the pooch.

Breeds blacklisted from Farmer's home insurance coverage

SACRAMENTO, CA - Farmers Insurance says it will no longer cover pit bulls, rottweilers, and certain wolf hybrids under your homeowner's insurance.

"These three breeds account for 25 percent of all dog bite claims and cause more harm when they attack than any other breed," says Erin Freeman, Chief Communications Officer at Farmers.

But animal rescue groups say this unfairly condemns certain breeds and insurance companies should consider coverage on a case-by-case basis.

"You look at the individual dog just like people you can't make judgements about someone just based on an appearance," says Dawn Capp with Chako Pit Bull Rescue.

Farmers says California homeowners will be notified of the change as their policies come up for renewal.

Pets make wonderful additions to our lives in so many different ways. They keep us entertained, keep us busy and most importantly, remind us that we are needed!


If you’re in the market for a new best friend and are trying to decide what pet is best for you…have you considered a rabbit?


Here are a few questions to ask yourself if you are considering adopting a rabbit:
1. Depending on the age of the rabbit, are you willing to invest up to a 10 year commitment, for the span of his or her life?

2. Rabbits, though small, need a fair amount of space. Do you have an area in your home that the rabbit can move around, get some exercise, and stretch his/her legs?

3. Do you have small children? Some rabbits love kids! But it’s important to remember that they are ground dwellers. They prefer to sit in your lap if they aren’t on the ground, and it’s important to teach children how to properly handle a rabbit.
