“What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.”

What happens when you mix the “I’ll never grow up” high-spirited and friendly attitude of a black Labrador retriever with that of the aristocratic, energetic and friendly attributes of a German shorthaired pointer?
You get the best of both breeds in a 2-year-old little man named Bowzer!
Bowzer is quite the energetic fellow, full of life, vim and vigor! If you ask him what type of forever family he would like to spend the rest of his life with, he lets you know that he needs an active family that will take him on a run or two during the day to help expend his energy.
He definitely enjoys the outdoors, so if you’re not a runner, but enjoy taking brisk walks on a cool Fall day, Bowzer will be more than happy to walk alongside you so he can sniff every leaf, bush and flower. Once his pent-up liveliness has been released, it’s back home again for a quick nap before dinner.
Always willing to learn, Bowzer is extremely smart and is not afraid to become the teacher’s pet as he works his way up to the head-of-the-class. Basic training with a capital T will not only tire Bowzer out, but will begin to give this amazing dog the proper socialization and good citizenship he needs to become even more remarkable as the best dog ever.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the adoption of Brie, a 1-year-old tortie-mix that finally found her purr-fect home. Atta, girl, Brie!
