The third dog in my Incredibulls series is Wallace. Wallace is the definition of incredible. They told him he was unadoptable. They said pitbulls couldn't compete and win disk competitions. And he proved them dead wrong. Sadly Wallace passed away from cancer, but his legacy lives on strong.
Seriously if you haven't heard of Wallace you should immediately go buy and read his book, watch some of his videos, and then like his Facebook page. His parents also adopted Hector, one of the dogs recovered from the Michael Vick dog fighting operation.

Incredibulls series: Handsome Dan
Introducing my new series, the Incredibulls. I wanted to draw some of my favorite pitbull type dogs, ones who have overcome odds, done awesome things, and are just plain adorable.
The first dog in my series is Handsome Dan of Handsome Dan's Rescue for Pitbull Type Dogs. He was one of the Vicktory Dogs, saved from Michael Vicks fighting operation, rehabilitated by Best Friends Animal Society and adopted by his kickass parents who run a rescue for pitbulls. They also help local shelters develop and run programs to improve the lives of the dogs inside and increase their adoptability. Handsome Dan is a, well, a handsome, brave boy who came out of a shitty situation and keeps shining.

Shelter labels him a dalmation/pointer mix....
3 year old
Behavior test rating: MILD! :)
Volunteer blurb [detailed bio below]: "Porkchop is a SUPER DOG! A staff favorite. They have him listed as a pointer/ dalmation mix, but he definitely has pittie in him! Just a really nice dog."
A volunteer writes: It was about 6PM and the shift for a shelter staff was just beginning. She came in and kept saying "where's my porkchop, where's my porkchop?" Of course, I had no idea what she was talking about, and wondered if she forgot to bring her dinner with her. Well, it turns out that porkchop is Porkchop her favorite dog. He had been moved to another kennel from when she had last been there. She begged me to take Porkchop out and I am sooooo glad she did. Porkchop is a gorgeous pointer/dalmation mix, all wiggles when he saw me approach. This handsome, tall dog was thrilled to be going out for a walk and relieved himself endlessly when we got on the street. He starts off seeming very dignified and aloof, and then breaks down into a wiggly, tail wagging lover. He walks well on the leash, responding to correction when needed. He was interested in everything going on around him, and when I sat down on the park bench promptly put his head in my lap for some loving. Porkchop is the kind of dog that makes you stand a little taller and straighten out your clothes as you are walking him; he is that good looking. Porkchop will make a wonderful addition to any family that wants to love him. Ask to meet him in Manhattan today.
These dogs are located at the Manhattan AC&C (326 E 110th Street/ (212)722-4939 keep hitting 0 until someone picks up). PLEASE ACT QUICKLY IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING, and please CALL THE SHELTER to ensure that the dog(s) is still available.
