We adopted Maverick, now "Ollie" on Dec. 22, 2016 - our first sweet dog having passed a year prior. We'd gone to the shelter to look at two (under 2 yrs of age) dogs I'd seen online. This VIP 4 year old wasn't even being considered, but managed to get my husband's attention with some persistent barking! It's now been 2 months, and Ollie hasn't put up so much as a peep! The quietest dog ever, but an independent little fellow. It's been a slow but steady process getting him to trust us, but we're in this for the long run! He's crazy about car rides and will get his fill of them with two long road trips this year. Meanwhile, our Fitbit's are getting a real workout with all of the walks. He's not interested in bones, but keeps us laughing by taking just one of each pair of shoes he finds, and moving them to different parts of the house. Fortunately, they haven't become chew toys. Ollie is a keeper for sure!

We adopted Pickles in August 2015 during the "Clear the Shelters" event. She was one of the "VIP pets" because she had been in the shelter for so long. I can't imagine how anyone passed her up, but I am selfishly so glad they did because we can't imagine our lives without her. She brings us so much joy and we are so thankful for her!

We adopted Avalanche, now Cooper, in July of 2015. He is the largest lap dog I've ever had! He learned to adjust to cats and stairs which took a little time. He is a wonderful addition to our family, and I couldn't imagine life without him. Thanks!
