Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
Short Stack (Shorty)
We adopted Short Stack back in February, 2019. After watching the website for almost a year for a dog that would be a good fit, we found Shorty, but he was adopted before we could meet him. Unfortunately, he wasn't a right fit for his first family, so when we saw him back in the site, we headed back over to meet him and fell in love with him.
After a couple of days, his personality started showing through and some not so good habits, so I signed him up for some behavior classes at WHS. What a difference three short lessons and a lot of practice made. We have a lot of work to do still, but he is so much better walking and less dog reactive.
He loves waiting at the bus stop for the kids and calmly greets each and every kid who gets off the bus. He seems so disappointed when I occasionally can't take him to the bus.
Short Stack has been such a wonderful addition to our family and we look forward to many adventures with him.
