Maddy loves going to animal and rescue shelters to play with all the dogs before they're adopted. In fact, Maddy just learned that her favorite puppy, Gigi, has been adopted. She was very bummed that she wouldn't get to see Gigi anymore...until mom revealed that they had just adopted Gigi!
Speaking of pet adoptions, this one is a little strange. Marina in Croatia is an animal activist, who was notified about a litter of homeless puppies. As the puppies got older, they didn't look quite right, or even like dogs per se. That's because these are actually jackals! Marina is the first person in Croatia to be allowed to adopt jackals as pets.
