Tug wanted to share his #transformationtuesday with everyone!! On the left are his intake photos at animal control, on the right he is hanging out and enjoying our adoption event this past weekend!! This sweet boy has always had a smile on his face even at his worst but now that his skin is healing he really has his heart set on finding a family. Tug's skin was in such bad shape when he first came to animal control he had almost no hair. His skin has been treated and he is not contagious to any doggy friends but his skin is still repairing itself and just needs a little more time to re-grow his beautiful coat again.

Is it possible for a dog to have 4 left paws? Because if it is that's our Pollyanna!! She is as sweet as can be but the most adorably clumsy pup you will ever meet!

Sometimes learning how to walk into a kennel on command is tough...so you improvise and hope for points for creativity.

In the excitement of meeting new people Forest can often forget his strength (and manners) but around the house he is so gentle he can let his little 8lbs foster sister walk him around by the leash.

The pursuit of happiness....a beagle digging to the bottom of the bone bin. Don't let that grey muzzle fool you Wendy Darling is quite the nimble gal and if food or bones are involved there is a will and a way! She is known to climb into the bin, scale baby gates, and pick up her bowl to carry to her favorite napping spot. There is just never a full moment with Wendy!
