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. 


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.
