I'm very fortunate to have many great friends that are dog lovers, and many more that are heavily involved with adopting or fostering dogs. We initially found a Weimaraner through SecondHand Hounds, and were very excited about the possibility of getting one of our favorite breeds, but soon realized that the personality characteristics of the dog would not be the best fit for our family and for our kids.
There were two additional dogs that caught our eye. We applied for Dakota, and heard back from her great foster, Kelsey, right away. After meeting her at Kelsey's house, we fell in love, adopted her, and brought her to her forever home on 12/30/14. We couldn't be happier!! She is so loving and affectionate, and so good with the kids. We can't thank Kelsey and SHH enough for all of their support and advice along the way! They are so organized and on top of the entire process from beginning to end, and made us feel so comfortable with our decision.
We had the option of changing her name, but thought that Dakota was perfect - we even live in Dakota County! She has adjusted very well to the Storlie household, and we're thrilled to have her and look forward to many wonderful years together! If you have any questions about adopting or using an agency like SHH, please let me know.
