Back to all Stories


I wanted to let the folks at AWS know that one of your former dogs is on her way to becoming an Appalachian trail thru hiker. I adopted Z (formally Saint) May 2014. Since then we have done everything together from running a half marathon to being on a dog sledding team. This March we made our way down to Georgia and we are two months into our journey back to Maine on the Appalachian trail. Things are going great on the trail for Z and I. Z carries her food and loves waking up every morning in the wilderness. I wanted to thank you and everyone at AWS for giving me my best friend and best hiking partner anyone could ask for.
