Famous Pups: ASPCA Adoptable Dogs Shine on the Today Show

Three adoptable ASPCA dogs featured on the Today Show

Lights, camera, action! If you watched NBC’s Today Show this morning, you probably saw a segment featuring three newly famous ASPCA adoptable dogs: Wishbone, Nautica and Bam Bam.

These adorable pups made their TV debut for a segment with hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda, and taste-tested homemade dog meals from veterinarian and talk-show host Dr. Katy Nelson. They were joined by U.S. slopestyle ski competitors Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy, Nick Goepper—recent gold, silver and bronze medalists, respectively.

All three dogs are at our New York City Adoption Center waiting to find their forever homes. If you’re in the New York City-area and are interested in adding a furry friend to your family, view our adoptable dog profiles here!

Talking about "Vlad, the Impaler" and likening Putin to him. Vlad was a medieval king in the Carpathian mountains who slaughtered thousands of his own people. The Dracula tales were based on his deeds, or misdeeds.


He means Vlad ..... Vladimir Putin

Never forget this monster Jill and thanks I am glad to know Vick has been voted most hated footballer gives the U.S back its animal rights reputation.


I disagree. He should never be forgotten for what he did. He got off far too easy for what he did and the only reason he even stopped is because he got caught. People now are acting as if nothing EVER happened!

No I think he meant Putin. Nobodys talking football, or Vic.


No one is talking about Michael Vick, they are talking about Vladimir Putin the president of Russia. In case you hadn't heard he was having the stray dogs in Sochi killed!!


Show Vlad the dog killer how dogs should be treated!


At the Henderson County Animal Shelter in Hendersonville, NC we just named a new born stray pup "Gus" in honor of the Olympian who is bringing strays back from Sochi. We named his brother "Sochi!"


So wonderful and moving to read about the people who are willing to do so much to save dogs; it counterbalances the cruelty that is so rampant.
