We adopted Rowdy, now named Blue. I have never felt such a bond and connection with a dog that I know this is a success story! When we first met him, he jumped and pulled and we were told he was cat aggressive. Well, we have cats, but have alot of experience with dogs and getting them used to cats and we just KNEW he was our perfect dog. A couple days after we brought him home, a storm hit while we were out. We had no idea that he was terrified of storms. We came home and his crate was in half and he was no where to be found. Calling around the house, we found him in the bathroom, cuddling with two kittens in the bathtub. He jumped out eagerly and we knew, at that moment, he had decided to be perfect for us as well. Blue, was at the shelter for over 5 months and now lives happily a block from the beach with his doggy and kitty friends! He doesn't pull on his leash anymore and cuddles and plays with kittens now! I guess it took him so long to find a home because he was waiting for us! Thank you HSNMB! We are beyond blessed and thankful to have decided to come by the shelter! He has made our hearts full again after losing our old pitty!
