This is the story of Herman

Herman Herman

In April 2011, Herman was about 11 weeks old. He and his black and white Labrador Retriever mix littermates had been found in a local ditch with their mother. A kind lady stopped and took the puppies home. She took them to Bond County Humane Society where they were kept clean and warm. Herman loved to cuddle but liked to chase his littermates, too.

September 2011 - an email letter received from the family who adopted Herman:

Dear BCHS,

Hi! Just wanted to give you an update on Herman, the lab-retriever mix we adopted in April. We knew as soon as we saw Herman he was going to be a great addition to our family. Thanks to all the love and attention he was given by everyone at BCHS, Herman was at ease with the transition to his new home. He is an extremely well-mannered dog. He is very attentive, extremely smart, and well-behaved. He loves to be around people. We joke that he is somewhat of an attention hog. But it seems that everyone that meets him falls in love with him just like we did. Herman loves the outdoors. He loves going on walks and playing fetch in the yard. (And to also chase the occasional bird.) Herman is also quite loveable too. He likes to snuggle up and take naps. He is very happy when he is with the company of anyone. We are expecting our first child in April, and know Herman will be a great protector and big brother.

We just wanted to say thanks for giving us the opportunity to adopt such an amazing animal. The people at BCHS really love and care for all the animals they have.

Thanks! And we hope you all have an amazing day!

Ryan, Erica, and Herman :o)

Herman Happy!
