When we pick up new pups from Animal Care & Control, it is quite a long process of picking the right fits. We typically take the ones that have a rougher past, a longer recovery and are long shots. They each have a history and a story, some longer than others, however, once we get them, they transition so quickly into a new lifestyle. They make friends, they become dogs, they are allowed to act like dogs and still be loved, they become part of a family, and part of a pack.
It's great seeing how the pups bond with each new 'class' we bring in and when they met pups from other classes at adoption events there are quick bonds that occur and it's great to watch. It's also great when the dogs are placed in their forever homes and meet again at alumni events. It's like they are brought back to the start of their better lives. These are some pictures that were all happenstance and captures just a few moments in time.
Vito & Karma were foster friends and are reunited for play time. Above, Zelda and Calvin's parents are friends (both NLOL alums) and they have regular play dates.
