Back to all Stories


A couple of years ago, a dog trainer friend knew I wanted a small red poodle since I had adopted two older poodles from her a couple years earlier.  She let me know that Bailee had arrived from Georgia a few days earlier.  I took the day off from work and went to AWS to meet him, and that’s when the mutual love story began.  I adopted him that day and took him home to NH.  Bailee has some guarding issues but he loves being my companion.  I think he has the life he wanted now; he is frequently on my lap, sleeps beside me, gets routine grooming, high quality foods, vet care, toys, and lots of love.  I don’t know his actual birthdate, but since I adopted him in July we celebrate then. He turned 10 this year. Thanks for allowing me to adopt him.  I am grateful.
