Charlotte - Adopted October 2017

Update on Charlotte, the deaf dog with vision impairment ! Nothing will hold her back! 10 months ago when my kids saw her at the Petco adoption event, it was love at first sight.

Jenga- adopted June 2017

A little over one year ago we adopted Jenga from JRs. She is our protector and we are hers. It hasn't always been easy. We've had LOTS of bumps along the way, but there isn't a day goes by that we aren't head over heels in love with her. When we first got her she would pull the leash like crazy and ...

Mykonos - January 2018

We had some extenuating circumstances to consider when someone recommended JRs for our pup search. One of our children has a disability and is non speaking.

Penny - Adopted February 2017

Helping my elderly parents find a dog who would fit their lifestyle and ages took more time then we expected. When my parents applied and were approved, they saw a few dogs over time but given my parents ages, finding the right match proved to be difficult. As we headed towards the year mark and hav...

We adopted Tundra ( previously Dug) at the end of Feb when he was about 10wks old. He has grown a lot and is a great family dog. At his 5 mo ...
