Luna the Gentle Giant

Here is an update on Luna (previously Pyra and Daisy) - our sweet, gentle giant Great Pyrenees mix. She has come out of her shell tremendously since adoption and has gained about 40 pounds (she looks so much healthier)! She LOVES to play with any toy she can get her paws on. Luna is no longer shy and reserved - her favorite thing to do is go to the dog park to run around with all of her friends. It took a good 2-3 months for her to fully warm up to us and trust us - but, man, was it worth it! She loves cuddles, learning new tricks, and laying by our sides. Thank you so much for rescuing Luna and putting her into a safe foster home until she could officially move into her forever home. We love her so much and cannot imagine our lives without her. Thank you!

Cracker Jack / Jake

Cracker Jack, now Jake, who got adopted in October 2015, is doing well in his home. Since January, Jake has been training in the sport of canine nose work. He passed his odor recognition test (ORT) in all three scents in May. Last weekend, he competed in the National Association of Canine Scent Work trial in Burlington, Wisconsin. Of the 45 dogs participating, only 20 earned titles - successfully completing all four hides - and Jake was one of them. Way to go, Jake!

Sam

Sam is very spoiled and amazingly smart...We're also starting to compete in agility, and he got his level 1 and 2 certificates from C-WAGS nosework. We take 2 classes a week (agility and nosework), sometimes private lessons as I'd like him to start in protection sports, and on some weekends, when the weather is nice, we go lure coursing. I'm so proud of the boy Sam is and the well behaved boy he's become!...He never causes any problems and he loooves to travel with me! We just took a drive to Boston last month and he had the best time! I'm so glad I decided to keep him. (video of lure coursing and agility below). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZ64kulmFmU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQvMLOKtZEs
