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.
This couple has two older, adorable IGs named Stella & Rizzo that were looking for a Greyhound to come be their buddy. They met a few of our Greys and even though they were IGs (which are usually a little easier to match with Greyhounds), most of our “darling” dogs were way too interested in them in the wrong way. But, the last dog we introduced them to was wonderful with them and the couple decided that they were going to welcome our dashing brindle boy with a black face, Gomer (nka Aldo), into their home!
This lady from Bellingham came to find her new best friend. As soon as the first dog came into the Adoption Center, it was love at first sight for both the lady and the dog. This dog knew exactly what to do to make sure the lady knew they were meant to be together — snuggling, kissing, leaning etc. This probably would have been one of the shortest appointments we have had except that the lady’s friend suggested it would be a good idea if she at least saw one other dog. We did show her another but it was extremely obvious that she only had eyes for Pam!!

All of our adoptions are special, but this is one is just a little more special! It all started in South Korea when a mother was found with her puppy. The mother is one of those special souls that could weather almost anything, including her extremely active 1 year old pup. After watching them at the kennel, we all thought she looked like she was ready to be on her own so we let her be adopted by a couple. But, as happy as she was in her new home, something just seemed to be missing for her and, thankfully, this couple was very tuned into her & realized she needed a buddy and they brought her to the kennel to meet a few dogs. When she came to the kennel, we had a little surprise for her — we had her puppy waiting in the lobby and the reaction of the two dogs when they saw each other was one of those special moments that we will never forget!!! It was so obvious that they needed to be together and, again thankfully, the couple realized immediately what they needed to do. Lou just had to be part of their family and reunited with her mother Rosie (fka Rosa)!!!!
