Adopted! Jerry (now Bruce) has a new family and best friend!


BruceUpdate-1/12-Jerry has been adopted! We first met Jerry 5 months ago. The 6-year-old Plott Hound was sweet, handsome, gentle with children, and incredibly smart, but we knew he would struggle to find the right guardian. He was high-energy, he liked to chew things, he was picky about the dogs he did or didn’t get along with, he had a history of jumping four-foot fences, his high prey drive made him incompatible with cats, he was a talented escape artist, and he exhibited signs of generalized anxiety. It wasn’t going to happen overnight, but we promised him that if he could just be patient with us, we’d find him the perfect home. On January 7, 2016, we don’t know what was louder: Jerry’s howls of excitement or our staff’s cheers of happiness as Jerry went home with Kevin, Heather, and their dog Coco!! We’ve since received updates that things are going great; Jerry has been renamed Bruce and is getting along wonderfully with his sister. Like the celebrity he is, he was even recognized by name when they went in for their first vet visit! He had so many fans rooting for him along the way and we can’t thank you all enough for your support! To see the impact your shares had, just check out this clip of Bruce on cloud nine, romping around his massive back yard (complete with an exercise leash and extra tall fences smile emoticon ) playing with his new sister!
