His name is Braxon and we’re adopting him. Because of our plans for the holidays we won’t be able to welcome him home till the new year. January 7th, to be exact. That’s when Best Friends Animal Sanctuary will fly him up. I wish we didn’t have to wait so long, but it’s the best for him this way.

So, you know. Be warned. I’ve got shelter dogs on the brain, and you’ll be hearing about ’em.

Congratulations! I have a shelter dog – Oreo, who I adopted when he was about 2. He’s 10 now, and still a love (and currently occupying my heating pad).
We had a trial with a second dog recently that didn’t work out so well, so it’s especially wonderful to see you’ve had success.
Braxon is a very handsome guy, by the way.


Awesome! Much love to Braxon who is so very handsome and kudos for Best Friends Animal Sanctuary – a place very dear to me too!

He’s adorable! Love, love, love!

Aww, sweet! I’ve been thinking about getting a dog myself (my first one!) and have been intentionally holding off on even browsing the shelters until things settle down after the holidays because I know once you start looking… :)

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
