Success Stories

We absolutely love Jane, we call her Willow now. She is adjusting so well and is the best addition for our family. She’s amazing. She’s slowly met our dogs and they’re still getting acquainted. Willow owns upstairs and our two dogs own downstairs. We’re so thankful for the shelter and all the volunteers that help make these adoptions possible.   
Mooshu, now Sir Ernest (or Ernie), is doing well.  According to his DNA he is 100% miniature schnauzer back to his great grandparents on one side.  The other side, however, is more colorful: miniature poodle, min pin, chihuahua and mixed breed. He is a WONDERFUL pup if you overlook the chewing.  He loves every dog in the dog park and there isn’t a dog that can outrun him.
