Shelley Jones recently updated PCHS about Grover, the dog she adopted in March. Grover is now Royal and “has been a wonderful addition to the family.” Shelley also wrote that Royal has been an exceptional comfort dog during a family member’s time of need. Additionally, Shelley takes him to work with her at her medical practice where Grover has been able to share his loving and comforting nature with others.
Royal has given Shelley, her friends, family, and patients plenty of joy. She said that he loves car rides as well as walks in the park. Shelley’s story is the happy ending that the PCHS hopes and strives for when adopting out animals. Royal's happy ending is espcially gratifying news for us since he came from a hoarder along with 4 other Maltese and 6 minature Yorkies. All the dogs were in poor health and totally unsocialized. They didn't even know how to be dogs!
We love hearing such joyful stories as Shelley’s and are thankful that she shared her experiences with us in writing and with pictures. Royal is clearly well loved and taken care of which shines through in his experiences with everyone he meets. PCHS wishes Shelley and Royal a lifetime of happiness, comfort, and joy!
Having a rough day? Take one look at Cheetoh; his smile is contagious! Cheetoh is an affectionate and well-mannered husky mix. Unfortunately, it ain't easy bein' cheesy, and Cheetoh showed up at the shelter after running out the front door one too many times. Keep in mind that as a husky mix, it's his nature to explore! Huskies should always have large, secure yards in order to satisfy this urge and burn off that extra energy. At the end of the day, Cheetoh is a great, fully trained dog who gets along wonderfully with kids and other animals. Plus there's that smile... how could you resist? Looking for a happy and well behaved companion who will always brighten your day? Cheetoh is dangerously cheesy!
That’s the description our shelter manager wrote about Cheetoh when he came to the shelter in July 2015. It still holds true today, 1½ years later, and Cheetoh is still waiting for his forever home. He has been in the dog program at the nearby Department of Corrections for the last six months and though he still loves a good run, he is very well-behaved. Please contact the shelter if you are interested in Cheetoh, so we can make arrangements to have him available for your visit.
