Our family is doing the dog jog as we strongly believe in the work the RHS does with abandoned animals.
Nine years ago we bought our dog Oliver(beagle) from a pet store. This was before we knew about 'puppy mills' and how dogs are treated by some breeders. Oliver has huge anxiety issues and I know if the wrong family would have bought him from that pet store he'd have been a shelter dog waiting for someone to put the time and energy into him. Thankfully he ended up with us and we know he's special and we love him just the same.
Four years ago we wanted another dog and we decided it had to be a rescue dog. Our first visit to RHS we met our Piper a border collie lab mix. She was three months old and was there with a brother and a sister. As soon as we met her we knew she had to join our family. We've never looked back, she is the most gentle dog you'll ever meet. She grew quite big, bigger than we thought she's a tall girl and weighs anywhere from 60-70 lbs. She's full of love!
Without a place like RHS I dread to think of what would have happened to her and her siblings!
