Rookie the Golden Retriever

Rookie didn’t start his life with us as he had planned. He started out by breaking his leg at nine weeks old. He recovered fully and continues to bring joy to our lives with his energy and cuddles and kisses every day. He loves to play fetch in the backyard and loves car rides, but loves playing in the snow the most. Submitted by Sam S.

Mayer the Mixed Breed

I adopted Mayer from the Ross County Animal Shelter, as part of the Betty White challenge on MLK weekend. He was born on November 1st, 2021. He survived and fully recovered from Parvo in December at only 1 1/2 months. He is a very intelligent, affectionate, loyal and playful pup. Submitted by LaKisha J.

Mindi the Mixed Breed

Miss Mindi is a six year old rescue, imported from the US. When she “kisses” me, she nibbles the tip of my nose with her teeth. She is queen of the small dog park we go to every morning, and will run from one end of the fenced area to the other to chase off the “evil fence dwellers” (people walking outside the fence with their dogs). She used to do this on her own, but now she has a following of eight or nine dogs that back her up. She has come such a long way from the frightened, sad little dog that I adopted four years ago. She is pure love, and I can’t imagine my life without her. Submitted by Dan W.
