I wanted to send you a picture and a note about our dog, Julian, who we rescued from Almost Home in May 2010. In such a short period of time we have fallen so in love with him! He instantly became a part of our family. We couldn't imagine not having him around. At times he can be a bit mischievous and we wonder how he gets into some of the things he does, but nonetheless, he keeps us laughing! He loves when visitors come over and gets very excited to greet each and everyone of our guests. Everyone that meets him just falls in love with his enthusiastic energy. I am so happy we rescued Julian. He is now in his forever home. Thank you so much for everything that you do!
Hi, I just wanted to give you guys a quick update on Jack. He was listed as a labradoodle but we aren't sure that is what he is. We think he could be a barbet or a different poodle mix but we don't see the lab in him at all. He is a great dog for us. He participates in everything with us. He loves to run, go for bike rides and travel, but he also loves to lye on the couch and watch me cook. At first we had some trouble with him being a one person dog. I was his person and no one else would do. But Jack is now able to include almost 100 people in his pack. we still have trouble with him guarding the house to an extreme but we work on it everyday and I know we will over come it. When I adopted Jack I told you that I needed a dog who acted positively toward children and you gave it to me. His fear based aggression and guarding has never applied to children. He treats children like furniture, they are just there and they are meaningless unless he knows them and then they are part of the pack. I have learned what situations are the most stressful to Jack and have found ways of not putting him in situations of stress unnecessarily. He has taught us so much about caring for a person who has been through trauma. We hope to adopt children with checkered pasts and Jack is our first. Thank you for bringing him into our lives.
