"I know that she is meant to be in a home," Wareham says. "She is just the sweetest thing in the world." On Tuesday, that's just what happened. On her 950th day in the shelter, Reeva got adopted, by a family who'd fallen in love with her after seeing her videos online and were even more smitten in person. It's a "perfect adoption," Enscoe says. "Reeva's story is a testament to never, ever give up on an animal."
Slayer the pit bull is always looking out for his family. Melissa Butt is so confident in her dog that she tells her young grandkids nothing bad will ever happen to them while Slayer is around, she told TODAY. On Aug. 13 that was put to the test, and Slayer proved himself to be exactly the hero Butt knew him to be. Butt's grandchildren, 4-year-old Zayden and 1 1/2-year-old Mallory, were playing with Slayer and another of the family's dogs, Paco, in the yard of their home in southwest Florida.
Last week, Melani Andrews walked into her local animal shelter and asked for "the oldest dog you have, and the one no one wants to adopt." Staff at the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, California, knew just whom to introduce Andrews to. Jake is a 12-year-old dog who'd come in a couple of months earlier as a stray. He is suffering from bad skin, bad teeth and an untreatable, terminal cancer. Jake's a "good boy," Front Street spokesperson Bobby Mann told TODAY.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
