My boyfriend and I had decided to get a dog, and spur-of-the-moment one Sunday, we decided to go to your shelter. As we walked through the rows of dogs, one dog stood out to us because of his barking. I made a comment, and we moved on.
The adoption counselor asked us what type of pup we were looking for, and she brought up the profile of Wallace, the very dog we had seen barking. As she read through his notes, she mentioned his kind nature, intelligence and love for animals and people. We decided to have a look, and it was pretty much over once we shared a room with him.
Wallace has only been in our home for three days, but it’s as if he has always been here. He is picking up leash commands and his new schedule like they’re nothing. He is so smart and receptive, both independent and a total cuddle bug. He is an excellent running companion and is so excited to greet all of the dogs along the way at Cheesman Park.
To think that we had passed him by seems insane now, and he is turning out to be a shockingly perfect match. (And outside of the barks we heard at the shelter, we have yet to hear him bark at all since.)
We thank you for giving us our new, wonderful friend. Our lives will only grow richer now that he’s in it.
