From Kelly of Denver, CO

Rosie Star, who was adopted from California earlier this year, was getting bored. First, it was summer and there was no snow. Then her people, who she loved, just couldn't keep up with her. She wanted to play tug-of-war all night and run full blast all day. Her people just couldn't keep up. They were very nice and loved her very much but they lacked the energy of the kind of companion she needed. She loved the dog park but her family wouldn't let her live there full time, but luckily for her, her people had owned dogs before and were sympathetic. They showed her how to use the Petfinder website and she only had to search a short while until she found Denali. He was not far away in Golden, Colorado, so her people drove her out there to have a look at him.

At first Rosie was a little overwhelmed by his enthusiasm, but pretty soon they were running together side by side and drinking with both their heads in the bucket like best old friends. Best of all, her people agreed with her - this was just what she needed. They took Denali home with them that day. Denali could not believe his good fortune - a home at last! and a best friend, too! Rosie and Denali have been inseparable ever since. They play all day and sleep all night and Rosie, Denali and their people are all so happy, they cannot believe their good fortune. Thanks to Petfinder, Rosie and Denali found each other and their forever home.
