We are Social Animals!

An update on Bear, now Yuri! Originally, the Rat Terrier came to us a bit downcast, missing his former family. And even as Yuri was sweet and cuddly, he always seemed a bit anxious, really needing a new beginning.

Well in June, Yuri got just that! According to his new people: "Yuri is doing great! He is such a well behaved sweetheart. He gets along famously with our other dog, Klaus, and he's been having a blast going on various adventures. I'm so glad we were able to give this little guy a home. He is a wonderful edition to our family."

Yuri sure has found his happy place :)

Pit Bull Terrier mix Miller is one cool pooch. He’s been an absolute stud at every offsite adoption event, digging time outside of his kennel to get to know the locals. No matter who comes his way, Miller showers all with big sloppy kisses — he’s a lover, not a fighter. He also gets along well with other dogs, though Miller’s history with cats is unknown. A slow and careful introduction to resident felines would be best.

With a little work on manners, 4-year-old Miller will be a model mutt. And for just $130, he can be all yours! Here’s to hoping that Miller’s future is so bright, he has to wear shades. #499412
