Wagging Tail Wednesday: Russell

When you find your pup soul mate, you just know! This story is about Remy and her instant bond with Russell, a pup with so much personality.   Russell’s lovable personality and funny quirks are what completely won Remy over! They do say that personality is the key to a lasting relationship. The bond that these two peas in a pod share is ever so special and we are thrilled to share this wonderful story with you today!


Tell us a little bit about yourself and your dog:

I adopted Russell in January and he has been the light of my life. He is actually my first dog which makes him even more special to me.  I am studying to become a vet tech and am currently attending Pierce College.

How did you find out about Wags & Walks?

I can’t exactly remember, but,  I think I stumbled upon the Wags and Walks Facebook page.

How did you know your dog was “the one”?

The second I saw the underbite! No joke.


Have there been any challenges or setbacks you’ve had to overcome? What was your biggest surprise?

The first month, the only thing that was difficult was for him to “come” when told to, even if I used a peppy tone. I think he was previously abused. Other than that, he was already pretty much trained.

What is your favorite thing about your dog? Does he/she have any funny quirks?

I love how social he is- even with the mailman! He literally loves everyone! The funniest quirk is the underbite- when he’s playing he’s happy as can be, and then the second he’s more chill and his mouth is closed, he looks pissed off! It’s too funny since I know he’s not actually upset. He also has knocked knees, so when he walks, I call him Beyonce and constantly ask him, “ Do you got some fries with that shake?!”


What is your favorite thing about being a doggy parent?

He’s my baby and I get to love him unconditionally. Plus it gives me an excuse to go to Petco more!

How has your dog changed you?

Crowds have always been hard for me, and he has helped me to become less anxious around crowds.

Is there anything else you’d like to share about you and your pup?

I can’t imagine my life without him- that’s how unbelievably incredible he is!


We are so happy that Remy and Russell found each other and share so much love and laughter. Pupdates like these warm our hearts, and we couldn’t be happier for this duo!
