The winner of the 2011 Wiener Dog Race championship race in Batavia, NY is the three time winner Jake Arnold who is owned by Jane Smart. It looked like it was one fun day for the thousands who watched sixty three dogs trying to figure out on which way to go in the beginning before the dogs got off to the finish line.

Texas locals in the Millican area are looking for the people who are responsible for the two dogs named Vonn & Esperanza that were used in dog fighting. The two dogs were found on the side of the road left for dead when they were found. Now the local pet lovers are out for justice and hoping that they can put a stop to these dog fights.
Gwendolyn Inocencio, an animal activist said: We will find the people who did that to the two dogs who are sitting in our clinic. If they are watching this, I want them to know that. We can start piecing together patterns, and we can start piecing together locations, and we can create a web of networking to where we can give the sheriffs the information they need to do something about it. Just random disconnected information doesn't do much.
Another animal activist named Jaimie Morrisroe said: It's just absolutely disgusting and it makes my stomach turn. I just can't stand it. I don't have a lot of money, but I have some spare time and connections and I will do whatever I can to help out.
So far the Humane Society is offering a five grand reward, with ten grand raised to help care for these two dogs. It won’t be long before these animal abusers are caught with a community working together they are bound to find them.
