Pet of the Week- Sancho

Sancho has a lot to say, and he wants you to know he's a great catch! Talkative and energetic, this little three-year-old Chihuahua is a very good boy. He enjoys walking with our volunteers and loves any opportunity to play with his human friends. He's looking for a home that is home often.

She is outgoing, playful and friendly like most puppies, and should benefit well from some positive reinforcement training. Bunny loves playing with other dogs and will try to sit in your lap.

Dog lovers defend pit bulls as breed

SACRAMENTO, CA - A pit bull attack that left a woman in Stockton dead Thursday has re-ignited a debate about the breed: Is their reputation for violence deserved?

STORY: Woman killed in apparent pit bull attack in Stockton ID'd

Owners of American Staffordshire Terriers competing at Cal Expo's Sacramento Kennel Club Dog Show will tell you their dogs are often mistaken by the public for pit bulls, so they're intimately aware of the public scorn for pit bulls.

That's especially true for Richard Chatigny. After years of raising Amstaffs and other dogs, he and his wife adopted a pit bull named Sadie.

"She's the calmest. She's the most obedient. She's the most accepting of anybody and everybody. She's a great ambassador," Chatigny said of Sadie.
