About Bruce

Bruce is my "old man/puppy". He's 6 yrs young and still lives for his bike runs! We have to take it slower for him because he has the early stages of arthritis, but he's still young at heart. He bounces around like a puppy, loves our training sessions, and just isn't ready to "act his age" which is fine by me!

About Parker

Parker started off as a foster. He was very very energetic and his doggy manners weren't the best. Everyone loved him for his good looks and charm, and he had a lot of people who wanted to make him part of their family, but one by one they passed him up after meeting him because he was just too active for the average household. After spending about six months with us as a foster, and being passed up by four families, I made a commitment to him: No more going from home to home. No more looking for a family to call your own. No more kennels when someone "can't handle" you. We started fostering him in March and signed the adoption papers in September. I once went for a six-mile walk to try to expend his energy, when we got back and he ran laps in the yard while I stood there jaw-dropped and knew there had to be a better way. When we started doing bike runs together everything changed! He could run as fast and far as he wanted safely, and I was the one who opened the door to that opportunity. With this new method of keeping his energy from boiling over he quickly became the amazing dog I have today. His doggy manners are much better, today he's made friends with everyone from a boxer mix to a chihuahua. He matches the jumpy play style of the boxer mix and laid down to gently play with the chihuahua.
