Expect the Unexpected

Getting a new dog is exciting, fun, and a little challenging. It’s impossible to know a dog’s entire backstory or what may happen in their future homes. Our goal in these bios is to introduce you to prospective pets based on looks, breed characteristics, and information given to us directly from our partner shelter, such [...]

Furry Best Friends: Meria and Rocky

She and her boyfriend adopted Lola, now Nymeria (they call her Meria) back in July. Their other dog, Kane, doesn't typically get along well with new dogs, but they got along [...]
