Rescue Story

Of the many dogs available at the shelter, Josie was the only one that wasn’t barking and, despite being in a cage, could sit on command. My husband chose her just as much as she chose him. She was 1 at the time. About a year later, we went to a dog park with Josie and a young girl brought a litter of puppies. A unique puppy caught our eye and we spontaneously decided to take her home. Cleo was 8 weeks at the time.
