Great memories!
It didn't take long to find a wonderful home for Krissy. We're always looking for foster homes. Please contact kstraley.ac@gmail.com if you can help.

We like to thanks all the people who have contacted us and are interested in fostering or adopting Krissy. The response was overwhelming to say the least. She will be going to a wonderful local family with the intent of making it her permanent home if all works out (we're keeping our fingers crossed). If you're thinking of adding a new pet to your family, please contact a shelter or rescue where so many more animals are waiting for a second chance.

Hello, I am looking for a good dog groomer for my sweet female Bichon. She has thick cottony fur and is about 18lbs. I have been doing her myself but would like to get a professional groom on her this time. Heather Adair says you all have a groomer that is very good and reasonable. If so, can you please tell me about it? Your address also please. Thank you

Peanut would love a home with another pup to play with and love! Here she is with her foster sister!

Peanut is still looking for her fur-ever home. She has so much love to give, with gusto! Who will be the lucky recipient? She's looking for a home with no small children, preferably an active home where she can join in the activities. She definitely doesn't let any grass grow under her feet! She'd make a great running buddy and I think she'd like agility training or other dog education courses.

Contact her foster mom, Katherine Couvillon at katcouvillon@gmail.com to inquire about Peanut.
