Do you have any canine housemates?

Yes, Tor (4yr Chow Mix), Egypt (4yr Rottweiler Mix), Maya (3yr Chocolate Lab), Neo (2yr Pomeranian) and of course numerous foster siblings!

How did you join your family?

My mommy always talks to people who post puppies in trade papers about being responsible breeders. One of those people called my mommy about me because he sold me to a person that wasn’t nice to me so he took me back from her. I was 11 week old, had the top of my tail missing, was dehydrated and full of worms when my mommy met me. I jumped into her arms and gave her lots of kisses. She said I was perfect and took me home.
