'Last Litter' program targets pet overpopulation

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Animal Welfare League offers a program to help pet owners in a bind.

The "Last Litter" program helps dog owners who have unexpected litters, sometimes referred to as an "oops" litter.

A litter of eight Boston Terrier Puggle mixes is the latest participant in the program.

"They're all named for the Cardinals football players. Floyd is running around here somewhere celebrating his catch from yesterday," said AAWL veterinarian Dr. Claudia Channing.

Well, an ASU psychologist is trying to figure out just that: do dogs exhibit behavior that makes them more adoptable? 

And is this something that can be taught?

Clive Wynne is not your typical dog lover.

“What I love about Oakley, is that he brings the ball back,” says Wynne as he plays fetch with one of the dogs being sheltered at the Arizona Animal Welfare League.
