Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Cora Jane
How is your adopted pet doing? Cora is 5 months old now. I’ve had her for about a month, and in that time she has done very well with her potty training, learning commands, crate training, and socializing. She is such a happy, calm, and well behaved puppy. She loves to play with everyone and everything, and her favorite thing is belly rubs. She is quick to destroy toys especially ones with a squeaker! We cuddle all the time, and she loves to be outside swimming. I cannot wait to watch her grow and continue learning. She has taught me patience and shown me unconditional love. I’m a happier person with her in my life. I can’t thank this organization enough for giving me a best friend and wonderful companion.

Happy Tails For Denver

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: August 2017
Pet’s AARF Name: Denver
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Raina
How is your adopted pet doing? Raina is a crazy happy dog. She fits perfectly into our family and enjoys spending time with her owner inside the house playing with toys, running around at the park, or even going on a drive to run errands. On a daily basis she annoys her older sister, our 12 year old chow-chow, but when they aren’t barking at each other, they sleep together. Raina is our doorbell, she barks whenever someone is at our house, and even if it is just windy outside she lets us know. She is such a sweetheart who just wants to play and lick your face. We are so happy to have her in our family.

Happy Tails For Pebbles

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: March, 2015
Pet’s AARF Name: Pebbles
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Rosie
How is your adopted pet doing? Rosie and I went through training and she has been a
Therapy Dog with TDI since 10/2015. She also is a CGC with the AKC. We visit a Wellness Center, a Rehab center and a local hospital. She knows when she puts on her red bandana that she’s doing her job and is very enthusiastic.
We are so lucky we got her, she is a joy to live with. She was ten pounds when we got her at about a year old. She is now 16 pounds but since she is 50% Yorkie, 25% long haired chihuahua, 12.5% Beagle and 12.5% unknown terrier, our Vet approves. I was thrilled to see a picture of one of her four puppies on Facebook when that dog turned one.
