Grew up with Samoyeds. Have always loved dogs and the companionship they offer.
What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
He was rescued by a kind lady from a puppy mill. When we first met him at 3 months old, he was very small with funny wavy hair that was all different colors, while his sisters had long beautiful straight white hair. His tongue always hangs out because somehow in the puppy mill, his jaw was fractured. We didn't find this out until we got him neutered two months later. He is also a bit afraid of stairs so we have to carry him down from the second floor everyday- but we don't mind because he's been through a lot and we love him so. He is a kind and gentle soul.
