Happy Tails For Bazil

Pet’s AARF Name: Bazil
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Marlo
How is your adopted pet doing? David and I don’t know what we did without our sweet Marlo (formerly Bazil). He loves taking long walks around the neighborhood, cuddling with his stuffed dinosaur, meeting new people and playing with dog friends! We’re still working on learning not to jump (he’s got height!) and how to effectively play with his cat sister, Penelope (not by barking at her). We are so lucky Marlo is a part of our family — he’s a perfect fit. Thanks AARF!

Pet’s AARF Name: Reuben
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Reuben
How is your adopted pet doing? Reuben has been great! He loves it here in Raleigh, NC and enjoys spending time with my roommates and my roommate’s Golden Retriever, Wrigley. He’s extremely eager to learn which has made training easy and enjoyable, it’s clear he is a clever pup.. sometimes too clever :). He enjoys morning runs and is currently working on off-leash training which he seems to be getting the hang of in the right areas… until he sees a squirrel. Reuben has found his place and is thriving in our pack thanks to the smooth adoption process through AARF.

Happy Tails For Henrik

Pet’s AARF Name: Henrik
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Ozzy
How is your adopted pet doing? Ozzy is doing great! He has mastered house training, as well as graduating from training at Petco. He loves squeaky toys and his ‘baby’, that he came to us with. He’s ripped up many a stuff toy, but never his baby. He still sleeps with it every night.
He has developed quite the personality & has no problem ‘telling’ us what he’s thinking.
He’s been a great addition to our family & life sure would be boring without him!

Happy Tails For Maddie

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: June 13th, 2017
Pet’s AARF Name: Maddie
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Ripley
How is your adopted pet doing? Ripley hasn’t let the whole “being deaf” thing get in her way. She’s become a regular adventure pup exploring the Sierras Mountains of California, the salt flats of Utah and the back woods of Chattanooga. She has learned very quickly how to communicate via a vibrating collar when she’s out climbing rocks with us so she never gets lost. We took her training very seriously and she already has all her basic commands down (through learning puppy sign language). We’re now working on roll over! She’s one happy pup, loves people her cat siblings (even though they aren’t quite convinced), other dogs and lives for the weekend when she gets to explore outside and going climbing with us.

Happy Tails For Talulah

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: 6/23/2017
Pet’s AARF Name: Talulah
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): n/a
How is your adopted pet doing? Talulah is SO precious, and has brought so much joy to our family! She was very timid and scared for the first two weeks, and never left my side while acclimating to our home and to our other dogs, Georgia and Pippin. But two weeks is really all it took, and now she and her brother and sister romp and play all over the house and yard. Our boys Charlie (14) and Thomas (12) adore Talulah, and look for any opportunity to carry her around like the sweet baby that she is. She has SO much personality and makes us laugh every day. She was very skinny when we got her, weighing only 12 pounds. At her last vet checkup, she weighed almost 14 pounds, and her fur has grown in thick and fluffy. We are so thankful to have found her and to have been able to give her a happy home.
