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.

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

SACRAMENTO, CA -- A Sacramento pug rescue group is reaching out to animal lovers in hopes of providing a much needed surgery for one of their precious pugs.  

Eight year-old Mija (Mee-ha) is a playful pug who loves to snuggle. She was rescued by PugSavers, a Northern California pug rescue group, after her owner, who loved her dearly couldn't afford special care for her diabetes. Mija's foster family has been taking great care of her until she finds her forever home, but recently her condition has worsened causing blindness in both of her eyes. 

It has been recommended by a specialist that both of Mija's eyes be removed to help with her diabetes and alleviate what has now become a painful condition.

Mini-horse rescued from Ceres canal

CERES, Calif. - A mini-horse was rescued from an irrigation canal Saturday morning.

A security officer with Turlock Irrigation found the 4-foot female horse trapped in a canal on the 4400 block of Crowslanding Road around 8:51 a.m., Ceres Fire Battalion Chief Michael Lillie said.

When fire crews responded to the scene, they found the horse stuck in the canal with about a foot of water. Lillie said the sides of the canal were too steep for the horse to climb out on her own.

About a quarter-mile down from where the horse was found, firefighters found a ledge that would allow the horse to get out safely.

Lillie said a couple of firefighters got into the canal with the horse, tied a rope around her and helped her climb out of the canal; it took crews 15 minutes to free the animal.

The horse suffered some scuffed up hooves from trying to climb up from the canal on her own, but was otherwise unharmed.
