If you've ever been to PAWS Chicago in the past two years, you've probably seen or met Red, PAWS unofficial mascot. Red, a somewhat ginger-haired dog, was shot and paralyzed when protecting his owner from robbers nearly three years ago.
Red is the face of resilience. Incredibly sweet, gentle and friendly, he defies pitbull stereotypes.
Most of all, he's a hero for saving his owner's life. And, after two years at the shelter due to his paralysis (most dogs are adopted much faster, especially when they are as sweet as Red), he is finally being adopted.
So here's a virtual, redheaded slut toast, to a ginger from another species, aka a (ginger) (wo)man's best friend.
