Second chance for Chance

Chance was at the shelter for a longer while. He was kind of a shy guy. Even though it wasn’t so, a person might get the idea that Chance was aloof and asocial. This can be a serious disadvantage when you are one of 16 dogs vying for attention. Chance was loved by the people who worked with him and got to know him but we began to wonder if a visitor would ever take a shine to him.

Well, someone did. Chance was liberated by London and seems to be doing just fine, thank you very much.

Everyone here is thrilled to see this guy doing so well.

John Boy Success Story

John Boy, one of the seven puppies named after members of the Walton Family, is now known as Dax.

Melissa, his adopted human,  sent us note on his progress:

In early April, we drove all the way from Seattle to adopt him after falling in love with his PetFinder profile the night before. He’s now doing wonderfully in his new forever home! He loves running around Seattle parks and being the center of attention of all of our neighbors. We love him so much! Attached are a few pictures we’ve taken since we adopted him; he’s grown so quickly! We just wanted to say thank you for giving us the opportunity to adopt Dax into our home!

He’s a very happy, healthy little pup! We love him so much, and are so grateful for our adoption experience with you guys.”

Thanks, Melissa! These updates are like a little pep pill. Knowing that one of our wards has settled into their home-for-life and is doing well makes me smile and swell with joy. I’m sure other volunteers feels the same.
