Forever Home Success Stories


Canis Lupus – January 2018

Not only did we just celebrate our 1 yr adoption anniversary, but tomorrow is Canis Lupus’ 3rd birthday according to the records! He is a total goofball, off leash, wonder dog dream! He goes back to his foster mom, Chelsea’s place, for boarding when we need which is a relationship we are SO grateful for. […]


Bear – December 2017

Last month marked Bear’s fifth year with me. Boy, I never thought I’d adore a dog again as much as I adored my old Lab…but Bear has earned every bit of that adoration! He is such a good soul. Currently he’s out in the snow and cold, protecting the neighborhood from interloping wildlife. We’ve taken […]


Lola – December 2017

I can’t believe that we adopted Lola over 6 months ago! I wanted to pass along our traditional holiday “family” photo.


Diesel – December 2017

Diesel is doing great, he is such a well-behaved dog! His vet check-up went very well, he is a healthy boy! Everyone comments on how relaxed he is for his age, we truly are blessed to have found this boy. He’s been doing excellent on his leash and very well bathroom breaks, we’ve only had […]


Nova – November 2017

We’re all doing so well and Abigail (fka Nova) is pretty much the perfect dog. Has some pretty serious fears of humans but we go to an off lead dog park in Portland and she’s coming around slowly. Getting along with the cats, all shots are up to date. She enjoys the vet. Probably just […]


Hickory – November 2017

Whiskey (fka Hickory) Everything is going really well here! Obviously it’s chaotic with 3 dogs but I think Whiskey is the best fit we could have gotten for our family. He’s doing well with being crated and we’ve been doing daily training sessions. I’ve attached a few pictures of the three as well! Thank you […]


Larry – November 2017

Larry is doing awesome! He is a wonderful companion. Definitely food motivated! A bit of a struggle to keep him from eating things he should not but we are trending the right way. He has behaved beautifully​ in a large number of situations. And seems to enjoy our active life. I would say that it […]


Elsa – November 2017

We love Elsa and can’t even remember what our life was like before we had her! Here are a few photos. She is doing great! She loves to hike, is very good mannered and smart.


Claire – October 2017

We are loving having Claire in our family. She truly is an awesome dog and I can’t imagine a better match. We’ve visited North Deering Veterinarians and they gave her their healthy pup stamp of approval! She is very sweet and loves coming to work with me in the mornings. (Photo below of her “office […]

Bentley (fka Blaze) is doing amazing.  He recently got his therapy dog certification!!! We are so proud of him. Here are some photos from 1 year ago and now. The ones with the stuffed shark are from the night we got and 1 year later! He has grown so much!!
