Hi, my name is Carrie and I adopted Baxter, formerly "Johnny" from NHA right before Christmas. I just wanted to send you guys an email to let you know how great he is doing.
I came to NHA that day in search of a sweet dog as a Christmas present for myself. Baxter is 5 years old, and at first like most people I was hesitant about adopting an older dog, but having him has completely changed my thinking. When I got Baxter home I discovered that he was already house broken, knew several tricks such as sit, shake, lay down and roll over. Baxter is still a very active boy, and loves to go walking or jogging with me either in the neighborhood or in Centennial Park. He goes almost everywhere I go!
Your staff was also extremely helpful with making sure that Baxter was the right fit for my home since I also have two cats and wanted to make sure that he would do well with them. A staff member brought a cat into a visitation room with Baxter and I, so that I could see how he would react to cats. Of course being his sweet self, he just wanted to lick the cat and play. Baxter and my cats now sleep and play together (as you can see in the picture attached).
He and I couldn't be happier that I brought him home that day from NHA. Hopefully, someone who is looking for a dog will see this and give an older doggie a chance. Baxter and I have been thinking about coming back again to see if we can find him a doggie friend.
Thank you so much NHA.
