I rescued both of these pups from rescue groups and they are my babies. Katie, an Aussie mix is a service and therapy dog, and the most patient pup in the world and has been with me for 6 years. Monkey, her brother, a terrier/dashchund mix, earned his name the day I brought him home 2 years ago. They are inseparable and play constantly. Rescues are the only way to go!

We adopted Camilla “Cami” from the shelter on Clear the Shelter day 2018.  She has been a true joy and I can’t imagine my life without her.  She loves life and especially loves chasing her tennis ball. We plan on adopting a brother or sister for Cami this year.

Cashew was a shelter dog I got four years ago. the minute he climbed in my lap at the shelter, I knew I was going to bring him home! He is full of energy, loves hikes, and gets cranky if his meal is late! Cashew is the nicest, friendliest wanna be cow-herder out there!
