Hello there my furry and human friends! This past week I had the pawesome opportunity to virtually lecture at my local university and I got to speak about a topic that is close to my heart. Adoption. For those of you that may not know, I used to be one of the adoptable pups from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter and when I met my human it changed my life along with some other pups in the office. Check out our stories!
No one wanted me because I was a “runt,” so I was the last lil pug left in a litter of puggies. I had to watch all my brothers and sisters go to their furever homes one by one. I was only there for 24 hrs and it made me so sad! Finally, my human Jamie came and found me and we’ve been best buds ever since. I can’t stand it when she’s not around, I start to make sad sounds!Poley
I was a stray for a good part of my life, but I was ok with people. I had some training and my new human lady found me and took me off the streets and I felt like a new dog! I started feeling like myself again and not so scared – I could be comfortable and safe in a house.Gryffy
I was previously living in an abusive home, my owner didn’t like me much. I moved around a lot – I had 4 homes before I was a year old. Finally, Dennis and his family took me in and I quickly bonded with Dennis. They tell me I became his “therapy dog” because I’m full of energy and help keep him active with his Wobbler’s Syndrome, which can be discouraging for him sometimes. I’m so happy I found my furever home and met Dennis!Harper
