MEET OUR PACK
There are a few dogs in the household that are lifelong residents. When we have fosters we'll highlight them here as well. Life is better with a dog... or two or four...
Thought to be a Great Dane mix who is actually part Husky...
Leo came into my life in south Georgia just before Hurricane Irma in 2017. A few months before I met him, he was turned into a shelter for some really dangerous behavior. Leo was one of four dogs that were taken into foster care during the storm. At the time, we were unaware of behavior issues because it was a mad dash to evacuate the coastal county. He was one of the most well behaved dogs in the group and when it was time for the fosters to head back to the shelter so potential adopters could see them, we found out that Leo wouldn't be kept there much longer because he had an unclear history with a bad mark on his record. Because of the likelihood of euthanasia, we kept him in foster care. He quickly became very attached to me and a few months later, I adopted him as my own.
We worked through his naughty habits and he now acts as a great role model for the rest of the pack. If it weren't for the challenges he brought to our life, I would have never started helping people at the capacity we do now. So thankful that my best buddy helped us facilitate a new way to help dogs and people that are struggling with behavior issues.
Sunshine's Stellar Supernova
A petite German Shorthair Pointer born February 2020
I had been looking to get a second dog for a while and had the opportunity to get Nova back in April of 2020. Right around the time folks were stuck at home, I was happily stuck with this snuggle bug. She brought new energy into our small family and continues to brighten the day with her bouncy attitude. Growing up, we had two GSPs in the house and life just felt so much more complete when she came into it.
The hound that I didn't expect to have...
Oh this guy... I met him when he was just a wrinkly puppy. The intentions were to help find an ideal home for him as his first owners couldn't keep him, however, my best friend and now partner fell in love with this guy and he became a permanent part of his family. When our families merged, it was pretty easy to consider him mine, too. He spends his afternoons watching me eat lunch and hoping I'll save some for him, but there's no greater connection between him and my partner. I adore seeing them enjoy life together. He tags along when we visit the local pub and is always down for a hike as long as his best pals are with him.
Tombstone's Gambling Man Wyatt
Okay, okay... pointers are my favorite breed...
Wyatt came from Tombstone German Shorthairs in Hazlehurst, Georgia. He shows great potential as a strong companion to hunt birds with. We look forward to seeing what this guy can do in the field. He's super snuggly and when he's not playing, he can often be found napping with his paws in the air.
