Happy Tails For Lulu

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: 5/3/19
Pet’s AARF Name: Lulu
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): kept it the same
How is your adopted pet doing? Sorry for the delay in replying. I was pleasantly surprised how clean she was when she arrived, and no odors at all. She took to us well. It appeared that she was house broken and has had some obedience training. She does get excited when she see birds or cats through the sliding glass door, but is getting better. I signed her up for obedience and socialization class, that will start on 9/12. We had 2 previous Jack Russells, so we weren’t sure what to expect, but by far she is the best. She listens well, goes in her crate when we leave or at bed time, without problems. She is our lap dog, she is my shadow always by my side. We both love her and so happy to have her. Hopefully all goes well when she meets the other dogs in her obedience class, they know how to deal with that. Don’t have any pictures now, maybe some later.

How is your adopted pet doing? Bandit (Huey) is the BEST. We adore him. He is so chill and sweet. He loves people, dogs and even our cat. We couldn’t have asked for a better dog. I can’t imagine our family without him. Thank you for taking good care of him before we got him. The foster family was awesome!!
