Time for a Friday Pupdate! We still have lots of little Olympians searching for their gold medal homes. Above, some of the puppies catch a nap in a moment of calm at a recent Badass Adoption event. Below, adoptable Meryl Davis shows off her yoga moves in her foster home; we encourage her to stick with ice dancing.
If you are interested in adopting one of our Olympian puppies, kick-off your race to the podium by visiting our website and filling out an adoption application. Please note that you must fill out an adoption application online; Badass does not do same-day walk-up adoptions.

Badass Brooklyn still has some puppies available…
Also how I sign every letter.
The Armory Show wasn’t the only big event in 1913 - it was also the year that suffragists marched on Washington to demand women’s right to vote. In light of that centennial anniversary, which is being celebrated this weekend, and the kickoff of Women’s History Month, it seemed like a good time to present you with this declaration from Nancy Spero.
After rescuing a very pregnant mama dog from a shelter in North Carolina, the mama (since named Bonnie Blair) gave birth to a healthy, whopping big litter of 10 puppies - our Olympians! In order to transport this large litter of precious cargo, the puppies - now three months old - were flown up to Brooklyn via the kind folks at Pilots N Paws. Our team shot this video of their arrival at an airfield in New Jersey. Some of the puppies have already gone to new homes, but many are still waiting for their forever families. If you are interested in adopting one of the Olympian puppies, please visit our website to fill out an adoption application. We are incredibly grateful to our friends in North Carolina for taking such good care of the puppies and to Pilots N Paws for the incredible service they provide.

The good folks at Dorothy labored over a tremendous “Book Map” depicting the settings of some 600 literary works based in London. The books, poems, and essays selected for the map run the gamut from T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land” to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
It takes a real man to look this butch while holding such a tiny, pretty, dog. Are you up to the challenge?
Sissy Spacek is a 2 year-old chihuahua mix who weighs just 8lbs. She loves being spoiled like a princess, and snuggling all day, but she also has a playful side and gets along swimmingly with her two canine foster siblings. Another of our distemper survivors, Sissy deserves her own very happy beginning!

Emma Thompson is an approximately 8 to 10 year old beagle mix from Florence, Alabama. We rescued her in memory of favorite senior Badass alum Steve McQueen who left a hole in our hearts when he passed away last November. Emma’s keeping up the tradition of sweet, mellow senior hounds, but she’s a little! And an adorable one at that!
Her Southern foster mom had some advance praise: “Emma has a tiny head & short little legs that might be thanks to some chihuahua. She has no problem jumping up onto a chair or the sofa, where she enjoys being a very laid back couch potato, content just sitting in your lap for as long as you can stand it. She walks well on a leash, seldom barks, and it’s a cute little hound bark. She loves to sleep in the bed & dives under the covers. She sleeps all night. Emma likes riding in the car & is very good.” Emma is housebroken and cratetrained and a very easy-going gal. Her NYC foster family joins in the ringing endorsement: “Emma is amazing! Such a puppy in an old lady’s body She is the biggest sweetheart and just wants to lay next to you where ever you are and cuddle. I can’t walk even to the kitchen without hearing her collar jingle as she follows me just to see where I’m going! She’s also taken to NYC so well! She is not fazed by the craziness of Flatbush Ave or even other dogs on the street. I feel like she has seen and done it all so that is why she is so chill!! There is not a negative thing I could say about this little one. She is the cutest and so well trained, I don’t know how anyone could have abandoned her!”
