“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 ¬†package.”

“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.”

“Willow changed my personal travel schedule and now I spend a lot more time in NYC.

Before I got her, I worked in London and other cities, but I try to be home as much as possible.

Having her encourages me to have more stability in my life.”

Milo, the considerate old soul

“My wife wanted a dog.

She used to show English Pointers in the states but then she moved to the U.K., where we met.

She couldn’t bring a dog overseas because of the quarantine.

We got married, moved to the country and got a Rottweiler called Penny.

We got Milo as a companion for Penny.  They were very close until Penny died a few years ago.

Since Penny died he’s been the center of our lives.

He’s so sensitive and considerate.

When he had diarrhea recently, and we were gone, he pooped in the bathtub instead of on a rug in the living room.

My wife suffers from migraines. Milo often puts his head on her feet and is a great comfort to her.

He’s always been a sweetheart.

He’s quite an old soul.

He’s a slice of Britain in New York.”
