It's no secret that Dallas is not a world-class city when it comes to treatment of animals: Strays and packed-full animal shelters have been a constant battle for years. Flower Mound-based nonprofit Humane Tomorrow is on the forefront of that battle. Not only do they work to find homes for animals in their own Dallas suburb, but they also operate an innovative educational outreach program that visits Dallas schools. That's where Sweetie the Incredible, a 12-year-old pit mix, and her five-year-old pit mix BFF Poindexter, come in. These multitalented canines empower and motivate pre-K to second-graders to make a difference in the lives of animals — and humans — through compassion and action. The "ambassadogs" were both rescued from tough circumstances and provide a great example of how a little bit of compassion goes a long way. Poindexter is often spotted in retro sunglasses and gives plenty of hugs, while Sweetie's resilience makes her a gifted storyteller. Kids that visit with these two get a dose of character education that encourages them to make life better for all creatures great and small.
