“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’ve had dogs all my life and right now my family dogs are aging.

Our oldest dog, Schuler, who was a rescue Black Labrador and lived to be eighteen years old just died about six months ago.

I just moved to NYC, and  brought one of our other family dogs, Winnie, a Golden Retriever with me.

She is thirteen years old right now, and was just diagnosed with a slow progressing Leukemia.

The city was hard on her and she kept getting infections, so she ended up going back to Michigan to live with my retired parents.”

“Morgan is a mush,

He is a love bug.

As far as having something loving in the house when you have two teenagers, who are sometimes not loving, is a great comfort.”

Morgan was born on July 24th, and my sons were born on July 23rd and 25th, so he fit right in.

He’s most comfortable when the entire family is at home.

He likes the pack being together.

My husband and I have some alone time when walking Morgan.

Also, it’s a good way for us to get exercise, as well as Morgan.”

“He’s very pretty and he has a nice smile.

The puppies were getting a lot of attention and Morgan was in his cage looking handsome and smiling.

He wasn’t a baby, he was six months old.

We filled out the paperwork and they did a background check on us.

We took him home that day.

The best thing about Morgan is that he’s so different from our Jack Russell, who was never affectionate, or even friendly for that matter.

He was aloof.”

“We had a Jack Russell Terrier and he passed away when he was 18 years old.

We waited for two years, when my younger boy, who, at the time was 11 years old, asked for a dog.

That was Christmas time three years ago.

A friend of mine told me that a rescue shelter called Social Tees showcases their animals at Petco on Lexington Avenue, so my husband and I went over on a Saturday afternoon.

We spotted Morgan and that was it.”

“That was 2011.

Bert was very attached to my college aged son and didn’t want to travel anymore.

Whenever he saw my suitcase he wouldn’t leave my son’s lap and made himself scarce during travel preparations.

I wasn’t really looking for another dog.

I knew my husband wouldn’t be thrilled, but I saw Milo at an adoption event at our pet store.  He was the exact same size as Mr. Bert, but with a very different personality.

We call Mr. Bert the mean mother because he’s always correcting other dogs.

We call Milo the perm puppy because he is always getting into trouble.”
