I adopted my chow mix, Hope, from Save All Dogs Rescue almost 2 years ago. She was 8 weeks old when I first got her and she has been a big part of my life ever since!

I was looking for my first dog after I had gotten my first apartment and the staff helped me so much! She has always been wonderful and healthy. She was super easy to train, was great with kids, and doesn’t need a leash when we go out.

I recently decided that she was getting lonely (her other siblings are cats and don’t like to play with her much) so I went back and adopted my second puppy, Asher. He’s a German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix and is an absolute love! When Asher was a puppy, his mom dropped a board on his head and he needed extensive surgery to live, but thankfully SADR saved his life and he’s the sweetest thing.

Asher still has neurological issues that couldn’t be helped from brain damage. He needed some help learning to walk straight and to stop spinning in circles, but he’s been getting the hang of it! I’ve had him a little over 3 months now and I wouldn’t trade either of them for the world! Thank you so much Save All Dogs Rescue for giving me my 2 babies, I can never be grateful enough.
