Sweet Success: Link & Navi

image6Written by loving adopters, Kristin & John W.

“We had been looking for a dog to complete our home for quite some time. It was originally only going to be one dog. We wanted to make sure they’d be a good fit for us. I had been interested in Link and Navi for awhile but it was convincing my boyfriend that two dogs were the right choice.

One day after work he had come home and asked me about the pair. I explained that two would be great because they’d love on each other and keep each other company. It was then he told me he went to Butte Humane to meet them and said they were the sweetest and coolest dogs he’d met so far.

The next day I went and adopted Link and Navi.

When we first brought them to the house, they immediately made themselves at home on our couch. We felt like they had been waiting for us and that we had them all along. Link has been such a joy to have. He is always by our side and loves to play chase. Navi has been such a love bug and enjoys cuddling. Her favorite thing is still to play catch and run around. Both are so loyal to us and we feel so lucky to have them in our lives. They also love each other and there was no separating these two, we’re so glad we didn’t.

These two have been to the beach, in the snow, camping, hiking and on roadtrips all over the place. We love bringing them with us everywhere we go and giving them the best life we can.

We couldn’t be happier with our choice to give them a forever home, our house is complete now and full of love.”

Volunteer Spotlight: Megan M.

IMG_0460Our latest Volunteer of the month is the outstanding Megan M!

Megan is a college student who started working with BHS after her dog passed away. She really missed having an animal friend but wasn’t ready to make the commitment quite yet. So, when she saw that her friend adopted a dog from BHS, she knew that this would be the perfect place to volunteer!

Megan became an amazing addition to the volunteer staff the moment she started working with the dogs. She works incredibly hard to give the dogs all of the love they deserve. She said her favorite part of volunteering is seeing how much the dogs appreciate a little play time and attention. Another thing Megan fell in love with about BHS is how much the staff and other volunteers care about each individual animal.

After volunteering for only a short while, Megan fell in love with a dog named Dyson. She didn’t know if she was ready to adopt him so she decided to be a foster. She said it was amazing to see Dyson grow from shy and scared to an outgoing and loving dog. The BHS staff really appreciated Megan working with Dyson and credit her for getting him adopted after only a couple of weeks in her home after having lived months and months in the shelter.  For this, we are so appreciative.

Megan has continued to foster dogs and isn’t deterred if a dog doesn’t work out well in her home. She loves it so much that she tries again. She loves to take the dogs swimming or on hikes and can not get enough of all the cuddles!

As a busy college student, it is wonderful that Megan makes the time to visit with our animals. We are so lucky to have incredibly dedicated volunteers like Megan!

Sweet Success: Greg & Miranda

greg-sweet-success“Hello all –

Greg here. It is hard to believe, but our one year anniversary is upon us on April 1st. Thank you for your hospitality. I’m glad you found me my folks – they are good, they are as golden as my fur. I like it here and I am all settled in.

We recently got a new member to the family, her name is Miranda and she is full of energy. She likes to act tough around me, but I know she is really a softy so I just ignore her antics and she is coming around. I think that by the end of the year, we will be snuggle buddies.

I hope your good works are continuing well. Thank you for helping me find this home.

Best Wishes,

Greg”


“Hi friends –miranda-sweet-success

My new Mom and Dad are simply the best. Dad has a beard, which I find very interesting. I love to crawl in it and pat it. He is the best.

Oh, we have another cat here, his name is Greg. I have to tolerate him, he ignores me, but I feel like I have to growl at him at least a little. But, he is not really all bad, I just want Dad all to myself – oh but that would mean no Mom. I guess I just really like being the center of attention. Dad tells me stories and both Mom and Dad play lots of different games with me. they say I’m a natural mouser. I like to hear that.

Thank you for your hospitality earlier, I’m doing even better these days.

Yours Truly,

Miranda”
