As a school teacher, I wanted to have something to come home to, where I didn’t have to think about work, something that would greet me with much love and affection. That’s when my husband and I came to the shelter in March 2010. As we scanned the kennels of both the shelter and stray side, our eyes were locked on one cute little puppy. We thought for sure we’d be able to handle raising a puppy, but as fate would have it, he was adopted before we had a chance. Luckily, our second choice was the one who “saved” us. We spent almost every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning walking dogs, and would always save our last walks for O’Shea. We now are official “homeowners,” and O’Shea has met many new friends in the area. Everywhere we walk, people are astounded to see such a fit, lean, healthy looking dog. We love him, he is our baby!
