His second favorite is to chase after all of his toys. He's super playful and is adjusting really well to his new home. We're so thrilled to welcome Bruce and to have him a part of our life. And he has the cutest underbite ever!

Alexa wrote, Ellie has been such a joy since we adopted her in October. She always makes us laugh no matter what she's doing. Ellie loves to be right next to us, or even right on top of us! She's a big lap dog. Ellie also likes to "hold hands", she's very sweet, and is learning new things very quickly. Some of Ellie's favorite things are playing with her brother Thunder, her stuffed toy Miss Piggy, her kong, and going to the Dog Park. Ellie is so sweet and adopting her was one of the best things I have ever done. She makes me so happy, and she makes me smile every time I see her smiling face and wagging tail. We love her so much!

Shelby 9 15 DsRoger wrote, We picked up our new family member on Saturdayy the 15th and brought her home to meet our two other dogs Callie Dixie. We new our 3 year old German Shepherd would love having a full of energy 9 month old cattle dog to play with. We were right. The two of them hit it off immediately and have been running and playing in our 1 1/4 acre yard ever since. Of course when they wear themselves out they let themselves in the dog door and crash on the couch, dog bed, floor or wherever they find it most comfortable. Our eleven year old dog likes our new girl also but leaves the running and playing to the youngsters. I've included a couple of pictures with Shelby and her new best friend Callie. We all love our new family member and look forward to lots of great times together.

One good day I walked in to volunteer walking the dogs, and I saw the cutest Jack Russell Terrier mix ever!! I fell in love immediately and we decided to bring him home. He is the best gift from God, he makes us the happiest people. We only regret not have done it before. Adopting a pet is saving a life, and that's priceless. 

Waffles 8 15c

Andrea wrote,  My family and I went for two days trying to figure out what kitten would best fit our family. On the second day "Puddy" now renamed Waffles stood out to me and the kids. She was the only cat we played with and we knew SHE was the one. The next day she was spayed and we got to pick her up. She has an amazing personality and is wonderful with the kids, ages 7, 6, and 3. She loves being around people, sleeps on the bed with my youngest, and at first I thought it was my daughter putting her in a fake shopping cart and pushing her around, but turns out, its the kitten that likes jumping in there and getting pushed around the house like a baby. She truly is the perfect addition to our family.
