Umm…hey guys? LOOK AT THIS FACE! AND HE HAS TO SIT IN A SPECIAL LITTLE CHAIR TO EAT?! Oh Gil, I wish I could take you home. Someone adopt him, please.
DOG OF THE WEEK!
Gil (pictured with his foster family) is an ultra sweet and friendly GSD mix puppy. He was a stray on the reservation as a young puppy. He came to rescue and has done very well! He was diagnosed with megaesophagus. He will need a family commited to giving him the extra care he needs with this condition. He has a special chair that he needs to sit in while he eats- being fed small, frequent meals throughout the day.
Gil is the sweetest dog! He would make any family complete!

Est DOB: 12/2012
Breed: bulldog/boxer (best guess)
History: Roxy needed rescue from a filthy pound. She was so scared there. We were able to get her into rescue, along with her sister Brooklyn. They are adorable puppies and appear to be a bulldog/boxer mix. They are very friendly and have sweet personalities. Roxy is doing excellent with children, cats, birds and other dogs.
Alright you guys, please welcome Coco’s Heart Dog Rescue to our local tumblr family.

Dmitri and Tamara, Amur Leopards, Minnesota Zoo, Apple Valley
Less than 40 Amur leopards exist in the wild, so the birth of two cubs in May 2012 was a boon not just for the Minnesota Zoo, but for the worldwide species too. Their mother, Polina, has raised the cubs since day one, and they’ve already developed distinct personalities: Tamara’s the spunky one, while Dmitri is a bit sassier.
Stella Gray, Athena, and Mariah, Arctic Foxes, Como Park Zoo, St. Paul, MN
Arctic foxes Aurora (mom) and Zephyr (dad) welcomed a litter of nine pups in March. Three—Stella Gray, Athena, and Mariah—still reside at the Como Park Zoo. They’re quick and feisty and love to scamper around their grassy habitat. They’ve also shown off their artistic prowess by creating colorful “paw paintings” for zoo auctions and TV segments
Black Bear Opening Weekend – September 15 & 16, 2012
The Minnesota Zoo’s newest exhibit, Black Bear, brings one of the state’s most iconic species to the Medtronic Minnesota Trail. This exhibit will feature three bears, Minnesota’s largest omnivores, in a naturalistic environment. The bears were brought to the Zoo after being orphaned as cubs.
The new exhibit includes a pool, trees for climbing, and natural Minnesota vegetation. Featuring two unique viewing opportunities – a den and cabin – the new exhibit will allow guests to come eye-to-eye with these remarkable creatures.
