From Sue of Sophia, WV

We contacted the shelter about a dog we saw on, but after speaking to them for nearly an hour, they said that they had a different dog that they believed would blend better with our family. We made arangements to meet at a local park and the shelter people said they would bring both dogs for us to meet. While we liked the first dog we initally called about, Sully, the second dog was an instant match! Even though he is large (around 85 pounds) he is so gentle my 31 pound five year old. And I can walk him on the leash alone. He is a welcome member of our family now, and I can't imagine life in our house without him. Many thanks to both and Raleigh County Animal Shelter for giving us the opportunity to adopt such a wonderful friend!
