“Bailey is the focal point of our family.

Everything we do revolves around her.

Now that we’ve had her for almost a year, she has settled into our daily routine.

My favorite think to do, is go for our early morning walk in Central Park, where she is off-leash.”

“It was definitely love at first sight.

We didn’t want to go home without her.

We were lucky enough to take her home that day.

She is great in the city, but was originally saved from a kill shelter in Texas.”

“We care for him together; he is a shared responsibility.

He adds more flue to our family.

He is also a stand-in, or partner and companion when one of us is traveling.”

“Niko has given us reason to do things that we might not have done without him.

I would’t have just gone for a walk in the park by myself, but now I take Niko and walk for hours.

Niko has brought my fiancé and me closer together.”

“We panicked when he started sprinting on the shore away from us.

We got to shore quickly and threw a stick, which he loves to catch.

Thankfully, he came running over.”

“Eventually, I was working from home and my girlfriend was in school and we were able to train a puppy.

They need to go out every two hours and require constant monitoring.

This past fall we were tubing and Niko got out of the tube and his life vest.

He realized he couldn’t get back to us.”

“The timing was right for us to get a dog.

We both grew up with families that had dogs and we knew down the road we wanted a dog.

We each wanted a dog (individually), but it was never the right time.”

“He gives us a reason to get up and around.

He’s motivation to get off the couch.

We see the sunrise and sunset every day.

We walk all over the city and travel with him.

He has a great attitude and he’s always up for an adventure.”

“I like the Schipperke and had thought about getting one when I was single a few years ago.

I am glad I waited.

Niko is a perfect mix of the dogs we liked.

He was the ultimate compromise.

I think Niko has changed my life in a positive way.”

“We argued about what kind of dog to get.

He really wanted a Husky, but I didn’t like the idea of a big dog in the city.

He did a lot of research and found the Alaskan Klee Kai.

The breed was started 30 years ago and is a cross between the Siberian Husky and the Schipperke.”
