adopt a dog, we'd like to give you some testimony from people who've worked with us in the past. It might make you think twice
about the kind of dog you are looking for...
Adopted a slightly older dog
"Dr. S." adopted Kola, a five-year-old shepherd mix who was an owner giveup. Kola was housebroken and
had been treated kindly by her previous family. "Dr. S." wanted a dog who would be calm and patient with her young
son. She reports that Kola is a sweet, gentle dog who loves her son and is so happy to be with her new family. Is
this something you might consider? If so, check out Charlie
Adopted a dangerous breed
"M. and K." adopted Chowder,
a 1-year-old chow. He had lingered on the All Breed site for a while because no one would give him a chance. "M. and
K." found to their delight that Chowder was loyal and loving, and as an added plus, he was extremely neat and
housebroke himself! (It's a famous Chow attribute.) Is this something you might consider? If so, check out Spencer.
Trusted us and took a chance on a dog who appeared to have some
This applicant saw "Misty,"
a chow/lab mix, on the Internet and had a good feeling about her. Even though her first meeting with Misty was not exactly
stellar, she trusted us when we said that Misty was a great dog who made a mediocre first impression. They took her for a
trial weekend, and by the end of the weekend called to say they couldn't live without her. Now Chaka (Misty's new name) is
the star of her obedience class. Chaka's adoptive mom says that she and her husband can't believe how lucky they were to get
such a wonderful dog. Is this something you might consider? If so, tell us on the application that you want us to
help recommend the right dog for you.
Adopted a lost cause
Is this something you might consider? If so, consider Cheyenne.
