Not long after my husband and I got married, I wanted to adopt a dog. I went to Pet Smart on a Saturday “just to look”, but once I laid eyes on Obie, I fell in love. We had a cuddle and played in the store, and I came home declaring I had found the puppy for us.
Not long after that, we successfully adopted Obie. I had the opportunity to meet not only his foster family, but also the family of his holding home who cared for Obie and his litter before he could move to a foster family. I have such gratitude for these volunteers and the work they put in to socialize and care for these dogs.
It’s been over two years since Obie joined our family and we could not love him more. It amazes me that his personality today is still very much like the adoption profile that was written about him. He loves his treats, long walks with his friends, visits to the dog park, his toy bucket and spending his days napping on the bed.
Thanks ARF for matching Obie with us – his forever home!
