Profile: We adopted two dogs from the shelter, and it was the best decision we ever made. I will never get a dog from anyplace else. They are both sweet loving dogs that bring a lot of happiness to our lives. I couldn't ask for better pooches!

I was adopted from the local animal shelter. When my parents came to look at the shelter, a nice attendant suggested they look at me after considering other pups. I came out like a good 'boi' (my parents like to pronounce it this way) and sat down beside them and gave them kisses...they say they knew then that they wouldn't be leaving without me. They named me Trooper because I was found on the street and had multiple bite wounds on my face and neck, then survived my time in the shelter. For quite some time I was the king of the castle, until they brought my sister home! I was mean to her at first, but we are now best friends. I love to snuggle under bankies..sometimes I get so comfortable I bark in my sleep! I like to wait until my parents fall asleep before sneaking into their bed at night to cuddle! I love to go swimming, but I hide in my kennel when it's bath time. My mom tells me I'm a very sassy boi, because I grumble when I don't get what I want! They also say I'm a sweet sweet man, as I give out TONS of kisses and LOVE to cuddle. I know how to sit, leave it, balance a treat on my nose, shake and play dead. I love treats, especially the sugar cookies my grandma makes! I also love Kraft Singles...my sister used to get her medicine in it, and I told my mom I needed a piece of cheese too! Now, when we hear a cheese wrapper opening, we come running! My parents like to call me Handsome Ham, Trooper Boi, Snoopy, Tinky/Stinky, Troopito, and all sorts of silly names.View Profile
I was adopted from the same shelter my brother came from. I had been at the shelter awhile, and my mom says she kept looking at my picture on the website and bugged my dad until he said they could bring me home. I wasn't too sure about them at first...I tried to run out open doors and didn't like to cuddle. After time I realized that they weren't so bad, and my brother warmed up to me after awhile. Now I like to cuddle with my brother, and sleep under 'bankies' and snuggle on the couch. My daddy likes to get me all riled up because he says I make the funniest grumble noises and bat my paws like a boxer! Balls and Frisbees are my favorite- so much so that I'm not allowed to have balls in the house anymore, only bones, because I bring them to my parents to throw for hours on end. Sometimes I would get in trouble for putting them where they don't belong, like the toilet or dishwasher. My parents like to call me 'crazy lady' because I run around and hop like a bunny, constantly do summersaults and can leap a high in the air to catch Frisbees...I even have about a 5 foot vertical leap from standing still. They say I have never ending amounts of energy. They also call me silly names like Franny buttons, Bug, Franny girl, Sweet Lady, Pearl and other silly names. Their new favorite name to call me is 'snow nose' because I am losing color in a stripe down my nose.. a condition called snow nose.View Profile
