Join us here as Regional Vice President Kathy Kreyling shares stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
This couple that came to the kennel was looking to adopt their first dog together. He grew up with Bernese Mountain Dogs and, while she did not grow up with dogs, she has been around them a lot and has been doing turnout at the kennel to get to know the greys. They told us that they wanted a big boy and since that describes almost all of the purebred dogs that we have, we actually had quite a few possibilities for them. The lady had a favorite from doing turnout and it turned out that our Irish lad, Ethan, also turned out to be the man’s favorite so he headed out the door to his new home!!!
This couple has adopted 3 dogs from us before and they usually have a very good idea of what dog they want before they come to the kennel. In general, they seem to be drawn to the big, goofy boys and there was no question that they were interested in one of those for their 4th grey. They currently have 2 greys — Muna who is 12 and was fka Ramona & Amir who is 4 and fka Bud. Both dogs were missing the brother they recently lost and Amir, in particular, really needed a new playmate. Well, he got one — our stunning, blue Irish laddie, Rupert (nka Maximillian)!!
