Plus he loves to curl up with his human servants for plenty of pets and love. Thanks so much to the foster family who took such good care of him when he was a sick kitten. He is a wonderful boy and we love him so! !! Thanks again!

  • In October 2012 I adopted a lab mix puppy named Mel and just want to send some pictures and let you all  know how she/s doing.

    I renamed her Isabelle, Izzy for short, and she gets bigger everyday.  She is the definition of a lap dog and she loves to cuddle.  Within the first few weeks of having her she already learned to sit and shake!  Her first night with me she slept in her kennel the entire night without a peep.(shes the first dog I've had that has done that so i was very excited) We're now working on down, sit, and stay. She loves to rip apart her toys and to eat ice cubes! I am so please with how smart and happy she is.  Her tail is always wagging and she loves to give kisses.  I can't thank you enough for allowing me to adopt such a great dog!
