Boo Bear and Daisy - Adopted Sisters

In the world of dog rescue, it can be very difficult to find a family who is willing and able to adopt two dogs at once. We usually only look for homes together for bonded pairs when we feel like it would be seriously detrimental to split the dogs up. That is the case with sisters Boo Bear and Daisy, a pair who have been raised together since Boo was just a small puppy.

Daisy is a 40lb, 6 year-old Lab/Carolina Mix.  Boo Bear is a 25lb 3 year-old mix of unknown origins. As you can see from the photographs above of the dogs in their NYC foster home, the sisters are seriously bonded. Perhaps you can relate.

If you are able to offer Daisy and Boo a home together - or if you know someone who may be interested - please email adopt@badassbk.com

Armadillo-T

A compact electric car than can fold in half when parked - video embedded below:

The small and light electric car completely folds in half when parking, making it a perfect fit for public or private transportation in an urban environment.

Looking for a parking space for hours at a busy shopping mall or being stuck on roads jammed with cars releasing large amounts of carbon dioxide are all-too-familiar scenes for city dwellers.

A group of researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) recently developed a possible solution to such problems: a foldable, compact electric vehicle that can be utilized either as a personal car or part of the public transit system to connect major transportation routes within a city.

In-Soo Suh, associate professor of the Graduate School for Green Transportation at KAIST, and his research team introduced a prototype micro electric car called “Armadillo-T,” whose design is based on a native animal of South America, the armadillo, a placental mammal with a leathery armor shell.

The research team imitated the animal’s distinctive protection characteristic of rolling up into a ball when facing with threat from predators. Just as armadillos hide themselves inside the shell, Armadillo-T tucks its rear body away, shrinking its original size of 2.8 meters (110 inches) down to almost half, 1.65 meters (65 inches), when folding.

We’ve got another big, big Adoption Event tomorrow, September 7th at NYC Pet on Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Come by and meet some amazing dogs, like Burt Lancaster, pictured above.
Burt Lancaster is a stunning 2 year-old husky mix that originally hails from North Carolina. Burt Lancaster the man was a gorgeous badass dude, and this dog lives up to his name! His NYC foster mom says that Burt is very mellow inside. Loves to lounge and get head rubs. Definitely low energy inside, but gets playful outside. “He’s cat-friendly too - but no chickens, please!” 
If you are interested in adopting Burt Lancaster tomorrow, get a head-start on the process by filling out our adoption application online.
