Brownie, age 6, models a Chanel handbag ($5,300). As sweet as her name, Brownie spent the first part of her life chained up outside but now loves her crate and is house-trained. She is available for adoption through Friends for Life.

Ezra helps show off the Grip watch ($1,450) by Gucci. Ezra was born in March of this year, and his current mission in life is to find the most direct path to a lap for petting! He is available for adoption through Friends for Life.

Sampson wears a Michael Kors bucket hat ($88). He was used as a bait dog and left in a ditch, but Blue River Pet Rescue nursed him back to health. Available for adoption, he loves other dogs and kids!

Jones, age 6, models the One Stud Nappa handbag ($3,900) by Valentino. Found limp and unresponsive, Jones bounced back and is ready to bounce into your life. He is available for adoption through Friends for Life.

Hank admires Versace ‘La Medusa’ handbags (small $1,350, medium $2,525). Emaciated when he was rescued in April, Hank is now healthy, happy and available for adoption through Blue River Pet Rescue.
