Last year my husband finally convinced me to get a dog. We knew we wanted to adopt, so I was very excited to discover PetFinder. We had done some research and we really wanted an Alaskan Malamute. Since we live in Texas, the odds of us finding one anywhere near us were slim. However, thanks to the search feature, we found the perfect dog just an hour away from us. She was incredibly poor and had been given up by her owner. When I went to get her, I walked in the kennel and she looked at me like.."it's about time you show up. I'm ready to go home." So we went home and she has been a part of our family ever since. She had suffered some pretty serious neglect (and possibly abuse), but she has taken to the easy life rather well. Malamutes are not easy dogs to own and take a little extra patience, but it is definitely worth the effort. Juno is such a sweet girl, we can't imagine not having her with us. We're even thinking about getting a second dog so she'll have a friend to play with.
