Charlie - Adopted June 2015

There's a saying that says you don't pick your dog it picks you, and that's how our story starts. We originally were looking for a large dog, but after attending Jr's dog event at PetCo in Delafield in June, Kiely (now Charlie) found us. She's perfect! She was so timid and shy when we first got her,...

Sam - Adopted March 2015

We adopted Samoa (now known as Sam) in March and he turned 1 in April. Every week we can see something more he's picked up on. He's very smart and the minute one of us puts our shoes on, he's standing by the door, ready to join us. He absolutely LOVES the dog park here in West Bend and runs and play...

Harper - Adopted November 2014

Harper (formerly Ciara) is one of the best things to ever happen to me. She is a great companion and very well behaved pup! She loves a good belly rub, going hiking, and playing with her furry friends! With her rough start to life down south, she came to Wisconsin with an injured foot and cautious h...

Darwin - Adopted December 2013

My husband and I had wanted a dog for over 10 years at the point when we built our home in 2011. When we decided to build, we kept in mind that we needed a lot of open space for our future Newfoundland. We applied to many breeders over two years and were turned down for one reason or another. I had ...

Harvey - Adopted February 2013

This is Harvey AKA The White Shadow. He was adopted in February of 2013. He was found running in Oklahoma chasing cows. He was thought to be a wheaten terrier mix that was about 2 years old. After having him for a while, I had decided he was a lot younger (he just celebrated his 3rd birthday), had b...

Milo (Adopted Aug 2011) and Lucy (Adopted Jan 2014)

I adopted both of my furbabies from JR's, and both dogs are the loves of my life. On August 3, 2011, I adopted Milo (formerly Bolow on the website). Milo is the sweetest, kindest, best dog in the world. He is always happy, loves all people, is great with kids, and thinks that his 65 pounds can be ma...

Tara - adopted March 2015

I was at a JR fundraising event when I met Tara. While I loved all the dogs there, I really was not looking to add another into my current mix of a special needs Carin Terrier and two cats. However I gravitated towards her despite not really liking the breed to be quite honest! I loved how she was s...

Simba - Adopted September 2015

We just adopted Simba about a week and a half ago. He is truly just right for our family. He is a little cuddler and is starting to help us explore the nearby parks in our city. We are quickly falling in love with this sweet boy. Thanks for helping us find our fit!

We are very grateful to JR's for giving us the opportunity to be puppy parents. Since we adopted Par...

Bear - Adopted June 2015

When we first came to JRs, my husband and I had a list of three dogs we wanted to meet. However, when we met the first one, we were really disappointed. He wasn’t the dog for us. On the heels of this, instead of waiting for our next visit I begged my husband to go to the Waukesha Petco event with me...
