Two dogs sleeping


Enjoy stories from our foster dogs!
Eagle and Bernie were two of Nikeno's foster dogs. They were adopted to the same family about 4 years apart. These dogs have traveled all over with their family. The older one, sick with Heartworm disease, was only saved hours before being put to sleep in a high kill shelter in Texas.

All that is behind him, and now he has a little sister named Bernie.

Bernie was considered a complete nuisance to her owner, but with her new mom, who just opened her heart to love, Bernie has blossomed into quite a loving companion to her big brother Eagle, and her mom and dad. So proud of them! For all the struggles these dogs went through before they found their perfect home, this is the pay out.

There just is no amount of money this can buy, just plain priceless!!
We took a road trip to SC! Bernie swam in the lake and loved it. Her and Eagle were sooooo beat on the ride home.
