Wagging Tails Wednesday - Xander

Russell and Xander

Love At First Sight

Russell had been looking for a 4-legged companion for months when he finally found his match at Wags and Walks

 

These two were meant to be. Our employee, Jamie, was at the shelter one day and took a walk through the kennels to see if she could find any available dogs for Wags and Walks. 

 

Xander, who had been in the shelter system for over a month, was patiently waiting in his kennel when Jamie asked to meet him. After a few minutes in the meet and greet area Jamie knew Xander was exactly what Wags and Walks was looking for- a sweet, kind, and loving pup. 

2.png

Jamie then took Xander to our partnership adoption center, NKLA. He was there for only an HOUR when Russell walked in. Russell, who had been to the shelter over 20 times looking for the perfect pup, said it was love at first sight. 

 

Xander and Russell both knew the perfect match would happen and patiently waited for the other.  In one day Xander was saved from a high kill shelter AND found his forever home. Stories like these really prove that animals and owners are meant to be. We couldn’t be happier that Russell and Xander found each other. 

If you are interested in your own pup love story this Valentine’s Day please continue to read our blog and follow us on social media to get updates on our new adoptables and amazing success stories.

Wagging Tails Wednesday - Frankie/Fabby

We love getting updates from adopters of our Wags and Walks alumni! Especially after we follow up congratulating them on their adoptiversary! 

Helen sent us an update telling us Frankie/Fabby, now known as Moose, “Is the light of our life” and we couldn’t be more overjoyed to hear so! 

Moose’s Mom also says “We are extremely happy with moose. We are so honored he chose us and let us be his companions! He is the most loving, caring, fun dog we have ever met!!!!”

And then came the best part! Helen and her partner would like to start fostering for Wags and Walks! We love when our alumni community wants to get further involved. Do you live in the Los Angeles area? If so, learn how you can get involved here!

Until next time,

    (Isn’t she gorgeous?!)

(Isn’t she gorgeous?!)

Jenna Chandler adopted Nellie and her entire family immediately fell in love with her. As with many pit bull owners, Jenna experienced some skepticism at her first from people close to her when she decided to adopt a pit. However, it only took one excited wiggle from Nellie for everyone to fall in love with her. 

Nellie is a curious social butterfly and loves to have her super soft head and belly rubbed at all times. When she sees members of her family she goes so excited that she almost wiggles out of her skin. She also enjoys wearing sweaters that compliment her family’s attire.

 

Nellie fits in perfectly with the family, she is happy to stay in and cuddle on a lazy day or go on long hikes in the mountains. While on hikes she loves to squirrels and birds and play with any puppy that crosses her path.

We couldn’t be happier that Nellie found her perfect forever home. She has brought so much love and joy to this family. Oh, and about all those people that were skeptical about owning a pit? After knowing Nellie, they are convinced that pit bulls are one of the best breeds around.

Wagging Tails Wednesday - Otis

OTIS is DEAFinitely Adorable!!

 

Remember Otis?

We recently got a very exciting pupdate about this gorgeous pup who is challenged in the hearing department. Despite a few initial struggles, he has comfortably adapted to his new home with his buddy Ollie. During the chilly months, Otis loves to get under the covers and snuggle with Ollie and his forever dad, Bob. 

2.png

Since Otis is unable to hear the world around him he is not shy about the fact that he needs a clear view of the world around him.... sometimes to the detriment of the window curtains. 

In addition to Otis’ redecorating abilities, he has a strong work ethic. He regularly assists his dad at work and only occasionally falls asleep in meetings (What? everybody’s doing it!) But despite the occasional nap, Otis does make a difference in the office. His presence in the office has been helping a young Labrador in the office become better mannered. 

When Otis isn’t able to come to the office, he waits patiently for his dad to come home from work and greets him from afar without any pesky curtains blocking his view.  

As any healthy pup should, Otis loves the outdoors. He goes on regular hikes and walks with his forever family. Otis is also starting some new training courses soon to work on expanding his knowledge of commands. Otis’ dad Bob Durkin says, “All in all Otis is doing great out here and I feel I couldn’t have found a better fit.”

 

There is no doubt Otis feels loved and cared for in his forever home.  We are so happy that he is doing so well!
