From Kimber of Norcross, GA

My husband had recently had a heart attack and needed a really buddy to help keep his spirits up and literally save his life. We saw Buddy and several others with DREAM. We visited their Howl-o-weenie and fell instantly in love with Buddy (even though he was covered in dust and an older dog). He has been a lifesaver. He watches over our family, especially my husband and daughter. We also got a new rescue, Oscar, whom he treats as his li'l buddy. DREAM is a great place as they work to match your home and personality to the pet. God bless DREAM and Petfinder.
