Leo the Dachshund, Kina the Shiba Inu and Mao the Cat

Leo is a Kaninchen Dachshund who we adopted from a puppy mill that didn’t want him after discovering that he was born with elbow dysplasia. Aside from his pawrents, Leo is being cared for by Kina, our Shiba Inu, and Mao, a cat that we rescued after finding it injured and left for dead in the forest. We titled this picture “The family that naps together stays together.” LOL. Submitted by Sally S.

May I introduce you to Denali! She is a 10 year old red and white Siberian Husky whose parents were championship sled dogs in Virginia. Denali is a therapy dog with Faithful Friends AAT, and also a R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) in the Clear Lake City, Texas area. Her main jobs are in the public library letting kids read to her, along with special visits seeing young and older clients, as well as employees in the worksite! Denali was born into this world to be a blessing to many as a therapy dog. She also enjoys singing, visiting the neighbors, and teaching her new young brother, Benwick Benny how to be a therapy dog.

Herbie the Terrier Mix

This is Herbie, a six year old Terrier mix that I adopted from the local animal shelter in 2018. People like to say the phrase, “Dogs are man’s best friend,” and in Herbie’s case, I can 100% agree with that statement. Through the past almost 4 years I’ve had with Herbie: I’ve gained his trust, his friendship, I’ve taught him new things, taken him on new adventures, learned his many likes and dislikes, and have made so many unforgettable and irreplaceable memories. He’s brought more joy than I can type out. He definitely goes to show that shelter animals still have more life and love to give, and that each and every one of them deserves a second chance. Herbie loves treats, chicken, cheese, tuna, walks, naps, drives, the Sonic Drive-in, dressing up, picture taking, kisses, and cuddles. Submitted by Alyssa L.
