Kristi wrote,  I'm Ripley! I'm a 6-year old lab/hound mix. I used to be called "Lucky" but my new mom didn't think that name suited me. I definitely think Ripley is a better name. Makes me feel tough! I was at Rover Oaks since April. Mom said that April to November is way too long for an awesome dog like me to be away from a couch! My big sister works at Rover Oaks and had begged mom to help out by fostering a dog for the holidays. My mom reluctantly agreed since she already has some other dogs in the house. The only thing she asked was that my big sister please bring home a dog that wouldn't mind playing with Arie. Arie is my big sister's dog and she's crazy with energy and just craziness! Mom decided to bring me home to foster thinking I was big and tough enough that Arie wouldn't drive me too crazy. What mom never expected was the me and Arie would be best friends!! Arie is the coolest and loves to play with me, even if I am big. She plays tug of war and squeaky toys and everything!! So, anyway, I am so happy to have my new home with my new mom and all my new brothers and sisters (especially Arie). I'm so glad my new mom and dad let me sit on their laps and sleep on the couch.

 Maria wrote, Molly is the little girl in the house, came to our home on August 28, 2014 after two days of intense searching. Adopt it for my husband and me was something that can not be described in words, give love, affection, care and a home for an abandoned puppy has been one of the most beautiful things we have done as a couple and which has satisfied us more.     The life changes when you have puppy has not been easy, molly is our first daughter was sick and we had to run with it in the early morning but everything we've done with love and dedication that we adore and she loves us we are all she have in life.  Thank God she is already very well pleased with your home, my husband and I we organize to take twice a week to share the park with other dogs and that is one of the activities he likes to sleep with us apart in soil.  Saturday you attend training classes Petsmart with her mom and dad in the evenings takes advantage of her tender face and manages to sleep with us and is currently preparing for their first Christmas as a family holiday. Molly is a loving, tender and spoiled dog, it's a bit fearful but has slowly been growing confidence and security holding She has changed me in every way always present in my days... since when is it not all about her.
