Back to all Stories


August 12, 2017: my son and I visited AWS and were looking to adopt a 50lb dog after we lost our beloved St. Bernard Rex. As I was sitting on a bench with a dog, a woman sat down beside me and said, “I think you should go look at that dog,” as she pointed to a chihuahua mix. I said oh no your family is playing with her. She said we are just here for the day playing with the dogs. Well my son overheard her and proceeded to meet the chihuahua mix Peanut. It was all over from there. 3 years later I still wish I could thank that woman for pushing us to meet Peanut. I will be forever in her debt as Peanut has got to be the best little girl I have ever known. She is a true blessing to our little family. She has our hearts forever!
