Colby A Life-Changing Pup

Colby, a Life-Changing Pup

We received the following message from David saying how much his adoption of Colby (now Levy) has changed his life. These sorts of stories warm our hearts and are the reason we put some much love into our work.

We love hearing updates from our adopters! If you would like to share your story, please send to

I adopted this wonderful pup, Levy (Colby at the time of adoption), at the end of October.  I just want to let you know, that my life has changed so much for the better.

I feel so lucky to have him be a part of my life. Everyone warned me about getting a puppy in the winter time and that it was going to be a headache and especially training and having an Australian Shepherd Mix. It has been the complete opposite. He is a sweet and amazing dog that has, at most, chewed up a sock and blanket. He’s incredibly smart and just loves hanging out with me all day, while I write music, and has actually helped me get a little more organized!  So, thank you for finding him for me. 

We’re about 3 months in, and still going strong.  Here are a few update pictures for you, since we just finished doggy training with A Sound Beginning
