Sophie and Spencer - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Potomac Cairn Terrier Rescue.


Our previous dog, a lab mix named Lucy, had passed away at the age of 16 and the house felt too empty. We found Petfinder and began to look for dogs in our area. Lucy had been a bit too big for us, so we were looking for a smaller dog with not too much energy. I found Sophie and Spencer's profile and showed it to the rest of my family. They said no; the puppies looked like old men. Still, they agreed to let the puppies come over and meet us. When they came Sophie was a bit fearful. She curled up in the back of her crate and didn't want to move. Spencer, on the other hand, followed us into the backyard. Soon Sophie left her crate to see what the noise was. Before long they were wrestling on the lawn. We had fallen in love with them.

They're still doing great and we love them very much. Thank you so much Petfinder!
