It was love at first sight! I picked out Abbie from the PetFinder list back in March 2018 and went to look at her one morning. I will have to say that the lady at the front desk discouraged me from adopting her due to "separation anxiety" issues that had been reported and I walked out with my own head tucked between my legs. I called my husband and he told me to get my butt back in there and spend some time with her. After about 10 minutes, I knew that my life would change. I came back that evening and took her to her forever home. She has been the most loving and faithful dog who just needed some TLC. Shelter dogs are some of the best dogs there are. Abbie had a huge list of what her families (she was given back by 2 different ones) said was "wrong" with her. If I had listened to all of the bad things they listed as to why they didn't want her and not follow my heart, I would be the one who missed out. Shelter dogs rule!

I graduated from college and ended up staying here in Texas instead of going back home. I live by myself and wanted someone to come home to. My friend adopted her dog from the Plano Animal Shelter and so she recommended that I get my dog here. So I looked online and found the perfect dog. Her name was Hannah in the shelter but I changed her name and she is now Phoebe! She is the sweetest and the most fun dog!!! She loves to play and she loves to bark.... a lot! Her favorite thing to do outside is roll in the grass when it's warm out. She also loves to chase dogs at the dog park. She does not like the camera though... anytime I try to take a picture with her or of her, she turns her head!! She is a hoot for sure but i love her so much!!! I'm so thankful for her. She has become my best friend! Plano Animal Shelter does so much when you adopt from them!! They make it so easy!

Ollie: This sweet and loveable guy came to us after we lost an elderly dog to cancer. We needed a friend for our other dog, and we needed something to make us smile. Ollie was a V.I.P. dog at the shelter. He had been there for a couple of months. He was picked up as a stray, was emaciated, had lost a lot of hair, and was about 10 years old. A shelter worker recommended him after hearing our lifestyle details. I expect that any dog can be made to fit into our home, some would create more of a struggle than others. But Ollie blended in from the beginning. Part of the family since 7/9/17.
