“At this point one of us is always home and we have a dog walker/sitter.

We are not sure how to fix this situation, but we are willing to exhaust all options.

We are open to getting creative, whatever that means.

We just want Riley to have a good quality of life.

My husband and I are also expecting a baby this week.”

“He felt a connection to Riley.

She was happy and playful.

We adopted her eight months ago.

She has sever separation anxiety.

We have worked with trainers and medications and nothing has helped.

It hasn’t been like anything we have ever experienced before.”

“Jack has taught me a lot about taking care of another being.

On stressful days, he’s what I look forward to when coming home.

A partner has to love him, in addition to loving me.

He’s part of the ┬ápackage.”

“I found his picture through a rescue group in Tennessee called Moonshine Dog Rescue.

If you committed to buying one of their dogs, they promised transporting the dog up east.

Once I committed to adopting Jack, another rescue group called Alpha dog Transport brought him from the scout, it a tractor trailer full of dogs from different rescue groups to a designated are off route 80 in New Jersey.”

“I just really wanted to take care of a living creature, and I also wanted a sidekick.

I was just coming out of a breakup and I went on Petfinder to find a rescue dog.

I typed in Shepherd mix; male or female.

I knew I wanted a medium size dog, I didn’t care about the breed or sex.”

“My husband and I are usually out and about and traveling, but Norman has caused us to be home and slow down.

We have spent every weekend at home and now have a greater appreciation for the city.

We take long walks through the park and spend more time at the dog run, because Norman loves it.”

“I came to Jersey City at first, which was no problem because it was quiet.

However, two weeks later we moved to Manhattan, which is taking some adjustment- at least on the streets where there are crowds, cars and noise.

I am looking forward to taking her to Central Park when she has adjusted a little more.

I think she will love it.”

“I used to think the dog ate my homework was a joke, but I have been a witness to Scout doing just that.

She recently ate several pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that must have fallen on the the floor.

Luckily, her unfortunate food choices have worked themselves out of her system and we haven’t had to take her to a veterinarian.”

“The kids love to play with her, and they help with the walking when they can.

We also have given in to getting a dog walker sometimes because it takes the pressure off of us.

I can take the kids to activities like soccer or dance after school without worrying about running home to walk her.”
