Loki’s Happy Ending

It’s been 11 months since we adopted Loki. He has been the most amazing, fun and energetic addition to our family. He’s incredibly smart and likes to cuddle…well, he decides when he likes to cuddle. Loki went from a 12 lb pup when we first got him, to a 70 lb pup almost a year later. […]

Sadie’s Happy Ending

Vada’s Happy Ending

Vada was a prime example of a mutt; not a dog you’d expect most families to seek out. He was a handsome guy, with long, shaggy fur, and a matted, slobbery beard, but his write-up on the ARF website was ‘less than desirable’ at a first glance. Vada had been found on a reserve, running […]
