Reggie's Story:

This handsome young man started out as a stray, wandering the streets of North Philadelphia. When PAWS rescued him in late 2007, Reggie was around a year old and only half his normal body weight. Today Reggie lives the happy life of a city dog, taking daily walks, jogging along the Schuylkill River, hanging out in coffee shops, enjoying play dates with other pit bulls, and practicing his tricks to impress everyone he meets. He has been seen dressed in a tutu, selling kisses to raise money for PAWS. He has also traveled to Philadelphia public schools with his lady friend Little Mama to teach children about preventing animal cruelty. Reggie’s favorite people are those who look past his tough-looking exterior to see a heart as big as his jumbo-sized head.
