“My boyfriend wasn’t familiar with the joy that you have from having to take care of your own dog and the unconditional love you get in return.

Having Rooney as a shared responsibility has made our relationship grow and has added a spark to our family.”

“She engaged with us right away.

She got into our laps and wanted to play.

We put in an application for her then and there.

She had a lot of applications.

We checked in with the people at Animal Haven to the point of being annoying, but our persistence paid off.

We’ve had her since August.”

I never had a small dog before, but I am in NYC indefinitely and I have a small space.

I fostered, and went to tons of shelters and rescue events.

My boyfriend and I found Rooney at Animal Haven, downtown.

She had just arrived that day from Puerto Rico.

She was three or four months old and we asked if we could play with in the little meeting room.”
