Happy Tails from some K-9 Rescue Adoption Families

If you were to ask me what I was doing on August 1, 1998, I would have to tell you that it was the day that changed my life. That was the day the whole family walked into Petco in Brooklyn Park for miscellaneous items and walked out with a new member to our family. The K-9 adoption was officially over but the staff graciously allowed us to stay and play with a 7 month old Rottweiler puppy. We were carefully watching the interaction between Waldo the Rottie pup and our two young children to make sure they would be able to bond. 

This is a process that takes time and we appreciated the patience of the staff for allowing us that time and not pressuring us to make a quick or snap decision. We also needed to consider the costs of owning another dog and whether or not he would take to our already existing household that included a cat. 

The staff assured us that all adopted pets have a trial period in which to make sure everyone adjusts properly. We took that puppy home that day and decided that his new start with his new family would bring about a new name. We wanted to keep a name that was similar to his previous name and our children decided on Bruno.

Bruno has flourished in our family environment and is a wonderful companion dog. He has graduated from Obedience 1 and Obedience 2 at the Alpha Academy and he recently passed the AKC standard Canine Good Citizen test known as the CGC. He has also been observing Pals on Paws, a therapy dog group associated with Therapy Dogs International. Since passing his CGC/TDI test, he is hoping to start making rounds with Pals on Paws to the local hospitals and nursing homes.

Bruno is here today because of the kind work of the K-9 rescue volunteers who saw the potential of this beautiful dog and decided to take him out of the humane society and into their hearts and homes until he could be adopted for life.

Thankfully yours,
The Harrison's
