After our 13 year-old Lab Shepherd mix died, we wanted to get another dog to keep our younger dog company. We searched on PetFinder for just the right dog. Opal was not quite seven months old when we adopted her. We were actually Opal's second home. She had been adopted at four months and then returned to the shelter. She was so lovable, we knew she was ours as soon as we saw her. She is a bundle of energy, but is very smart. She is easy to train and we plan to start her on obedience training and then agility training.

In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

Lucie, a hound mix, came into our lives when she was about two-years-old. She was a rescue dog that was up for adoption at the shelter that was not a no-kill shelter. Her status at the shelter was critical, because she was almost due to be euthanized. Lucie had a rough puppyhood. When we got her we learned that she had been kept on an extremely short leash so to fight boredom, she chewed on her metal chain. As a result, most of her front teeth are gone or damaged. At some point in time she has had a broken leg that wasn't fixed properly, so she has a limp. When she arrived at our house she had sores all over from laying in the dirt for hours and hours. Mercifully, she was taken from her original owners because of this abuse. Needless to say she is living a much better life with us. She is the sweetest and best dog. Everyone that sees her love her spots. Our favorite thing about Lucie is when she howls.

We adopted Otis from a shelter in a rural area near our home. It was heartbreaking to see how many dogs are in the shelters waiting for loving families. It was hard not to take them all home. Otis captured our hearts, so he is the one we brought home. He is four months old and was left at the shelter at 12 weeks with three litter mates. Otis is a sweet dog that became part of our family right away. He is learning commands like sit and stay very well. We realized when we let him run free in our large yard it was likely the first time he'd ever gotten to run. It was obvious he loves it! He enjoys playing for hours with her sister, Opal, who we adopted two years ago. Together they make a great dog duo!
