This bright and spunky dog is who we welcomed through our doors this a.m.! Wilson is a three in a half year old Golden Retriever that weighs seventy pounds. Wilson joined our Large Dog Program and fit in like he's been a part of this place for years. He did lots of exploring, sniffing, and getting to know the other dogs... Diego is another retriever who looks almost identical to Wilson, and that's who he took to and played with for most of the morning. 

We hope to see him return soon!
Take care,

Callie is an insanely gorgeous white/tan German Shepherd that joined our Large Dog Program this morning. She's ten months old and full of curiosity... Callie came in here a tad bit shy but that slowly went away as she started to meet the other dogs; sniffing butts and wandering around her new play area. It was great to see that Dog Speak.

We look forward to getting to know Callie more- as she starts coming here to get socialization with other members of her kind.

Take care,

Andy, Max, and Paddington

Andy came into the Fort for his assessment bright and early yesterday morning. He is seven-month-old, twenty-eight-pound, Welsh Corgi mix. He "spoke" good dog and had a lot of fun getting to know the other dogs in our Medium Dog Program. Andy really enjoyed playing with Frankie & Fonzie. He is welcome back anytime. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

Max came in for his assessment this morning. He is a five-year-old, seventeen-pound, Boston Terrier. Max was very curious, and sniffed everything on his way back to our Medium Dog Program. He had a great time hanging out with the other dogs, and got into to a little bit of play. He passed his assessment with flying colors, and will be a great addition to our Medium Dog Program.

Last but not least, we have Paddington. He also joined the Fort this morning. Paddington is an adorable five-month-old, seven-pound, Havapoo (Havanese x Poodle). He joined our Small Dog Program, where he enjoyed mingling with the other dogs. Paddington is welcome back anytime. We hope to see him soon.

Have a great weekend,
- Gary

Dizzy was today's assessment that arrived earlier this morning. He's a three year old, four pound Bolognese that went up and joined our Small Dog Program

From the first moment I saw him, I knew instantly this guy has one soft coat- and he does... He kind of reminds me of a cuddly, fluffy teddy bear. I enjoyed watching Dizzy became more and more comfortable with his new surroundings. He showed great dog speak, and started to socialize a little bit, before he left. I have a feeling this guy is going to make some friends next time he returns!

Have a good day,

Phinnie is the newest member to our Medium Dog Program. She's only four months old, so she still has some growing and maturing to do. As she gets bigger and gains more energy, she'll probably graduate to our Large Dog Program. Phinnie is a Bernese Mountain Dog, and only weighs thirty one pounds; females usually reach anywhere from 79-110 pounds! This girl passed her assessment with flying colors... She came in here alert, and ready to mingle and meet! We were able to capture her in action-playing with some of her new friends.

Watch 'em below...

Have a wonderful day,

Luna & Hugo

This morning we had the pleasure of meeting Luna. She is a four-month-old, twenty-five-pound, Red Standard Poodle. Luna is a very confident puppy, she joined our Medium Dog Program and immediately started playing. The first dog she met was Frankie the Red Labradoodle, and the two of them played nonstop. She also played with Zoey and Nia. She did a great job today, and is welcome back anytime. We hope to see her again soon!

Check out this clip of Luna tearing it up with Frankie.

Hugo came into the Fort for his assessment yesterday. He is a three-year-old, nineteen-pound, Westie. He also joined our Medium Dog Program. Hugo speaks good dog and will play with anyone who is willing. Yesterday, he played with Bogie, Frankie, Nia, and Fonzie. He passed his assessment with flying colors, and is welcome back any time. We look forward to seeing him again soon.

Here is a clip of Hugo playing with Fonzie.

Have a great weekend,

Check out Jody! He's a Border Collie that joined our Medium Dog Program  bright and early this morning. Jody's only three months old and weighs twenty three pounds. This young pup was very curious when he first trotted through our doors; I enjoyed watching him as he started to make some friends. 

See? This video proves how comfortable this guy is, surrounded by his own kind. Jody is a very friendly dog and I look forward to seeing him return again.

Enjoy your day and stay cool,

Tilly and Leo

Tilly was one of our adorable assessments today! She's only thirteen weeks old, and weighs about seven pounds. This girl is a Miniature Austrailian Shepherd. She joined our Puppy Program a little shy and timid at first, but that quickly changed once we introduced the toys and balls. Check her out having a blast below...

As you can see, Tilly is a very curious young pup. After she played with our balls the first time, they helped her get out of her comfort zone, and explore her new play area.  

Leo was our other assessment from today. He's a mix, so we are unsure of his exact breed but one thing's apparent, he's definitely some type of herding dog. He is seven years old and weighs fifty pounds. Leo joined our Large Dog Program with ease. It was as if, this guy has been here before; even though he hasn't. 

Both Tilly and Leo are welcome to come back whenever they want. Happy early 4th of July!
