Join us here each Monday 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.
These adoptions both have something in common. They both had to return dogs and then ended up adopting other dogs that had been returned because the home they were in wasn’t working for one reason or another.
The first couple needed a dog that would do well in an apartment in a busy part of Bellevue. We actually would not have thought this particular dog would do okay in an apartment because he was so active at the kennel so we wouldn’t have showed him to these people. However, because the first owner told us how quiet and easy he was, we introduced him to this couple and they hit it off right away. So, it was no surprise that TJ went home with them and is doing very well!!
Vanilla and Derringer
The next family wanted to eventually get two dogs who would do well with all 3 generations that live in the home. Since there is almost always someone home & they have a wide variety of ages and activity levels in the home, it seemed to all of us that their home would be a greyt place for some dogs that had separation anxiety. Luckily, it worked out and Derringer (nka Jake) and Vanilla (nka Nilla) are having lots of fun with each other and their new family! (No family photo)
