Happy Tail: Haze

Freckles has a new name, Haze. Everything has been going great since I adopted her. I love her! She knows how to play fetch with her ball and now is catching her ball in mid air! I took her to the vet and my vet loved her. She is doing really well and I don't have any concerns or worries with Haze at this time. Jessica

Happy Tail: Leo

Lewis’ name changed to Leo! Everything is going wonderfully! He loves doing tricks, especially if there are treats involved. He now loves car rides and loves riding with the windows down. He still loves to cuddle! I have taken him to the vet. He was very healthy overall except for his dandruff. However, I put him on a salmon based dog food diet and it is much better. His hair has grown in much better, to the point where my mom thought he gained weight!😂 [...]

The adoption process was fairly quick and very easy! I would definitely adopt again! Tina

Happy Tail: Kendra

We kept the name Kendra. She’s a very sweet happy girl. She had decided she likes to sleep on the couch and the bed. She also likes her dog bed. She has been to the vet and checked for hook worms which were present. We gave her the medicine and it seems to have taken care of it. She gets along well with the other dogs and always try’s to get them to play with her. The only concern we have is she won’t tell [...]

Happy Tail: Hannah Jo

We love our Hannah Jo. She's not going to be a little dog as we all had anticipated. We actually had her DNA testing done and the main breeds that came up were Alaskan Malamute and American Stafford Terrier (pit bull breed). We do not care and love her and await at how large she's going to get. Our vet thinks she will be about 60-65 lbs. But he is guessing. She's been to the vet 3 times since we've gotten her. We had her [...]

Toblerone's new name is Tony! Everything is going great with him! He is a very rambunctious pup! But so loving! We have not taken him to the vet but intend to in the next month or so as we need to get him his rabies vacinations Nothing has happened that's worried us. He's a pretty normal puppy with a ton of energy! Emily
