I just wanted to update the HSU family on how Kenai, now more affectionately known as Kee. My sweet boy has amazed his vet with his ability to trust me. We were able to do x-rays of his back and hips while on his back with no sedative. I put him on the table and he laid his head back on my shoulder while I spoke to him in Gaelic. His vet said in his 20 years he had never seen such a thing. I knew when I saw this beautiful boy on the website and heard his story and that nobody would take a chance on him that he had to be mine.

We went to the shelter to "look" at dogs, but knowing me, of course I was going to get one. We went in and looked at all the big dogs, all of them very very cute, but right when we got to June (her name was Rosie at the time) we knew she was the one. We took her out on a walk and I sat on the grass and she just plopped down next to me and I immediately started crying. I was so happy when we got her. At first, her fur was kind of gray and frizzy and dead, she was very scared, she wouldn't eat, and she was very quiet.
My husband and I never imagined getting a cat since we both grew up having pet dogs. But as faith will have it, our two-year-old son is a "cat lover". Thanks to the Ikea stuff toy cat that he adores and his purring session with the FurReal friends Bootsie the cat. We tried to introduce him to dogs and puppies but his heart didn't sway. So when it came down to brainstorming for this year's Christmas present, we knew what to get him.
We adopted Chunk 8 months ago and it was the best thing we could have done! Chunk is a pit-bull terrier who was transferred from another shelter, he had no history and I think he may have been a mischievous mutt too! But needless to say, we fell in love with this slobbery 50-pound lap dog and brought him home. It wasn't always easy at first, we had to start from the beginning with potty, house and obedience training. But it turned out that all Chunk needed was lots of love and a new home to become the best dog ever! He has more personality in 1 paw than most people!
Hi my name is Mallory & almost a year ago I adopted "peewee" who is now Rosco. Rosco is a German shepherd mix & is the absolute best dog I have ever had. He had some serious anxiety issues when we first got him, most likely from a past that was unpleasant. When I went to pick him up the described to me how he was missing some teeth in the front as well. Over the course of this year, it has been amazing me & Rosco both healing one another. He is so well behaved & I can take him anywhere he's allowed.
We adopted Luna, an older black lab from the HSU around 4.5 years ago. She was gray, scared, and had a limp. I bet a lot of people walked past this wonderful animal before we came around. Luna was sweet, and seemed very smart. She convinced us to adopt her by rolling over when we asked. She turned out to be the best dog I've ever had. She was smart, sweet, well behaved, good with people and other dogs. Not so good with deer, raccoons and skunks. My family loved her so much. I often thought that I would love to meet her former owners and ask why on earth they would give her up.
Our two little dogs are Mia and Browny. They were adopted 7-8 years ago when I was 7. We had gone down just to look. When me and my mom got there from the store my dad who didn't understand just look, had decided he liked the miniature pinscher he was looking at. After discussing it my parents decided we could get him. Deciding he needed a friend we went back in to look for another small dog. We found Mia behind the door. My dad brought her out and we decided on her too. Now Mia is my best friend and we do everything together. In December of 2015 we decided to adopt another dog.
