Muddy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Trenton Animal Shelter, Trenton, NJ.

In February of 2005, my search for a male puppy brought me to Trenton Animal Shelter's page on Petfinder. There, I found a fuzzy white puppy, about 3 months old, who we hoped would be willing to tolerate the bossy 13 lb Jack Russell who had started fights with every adult dog we introduced her to. Muddy proved to be the perfect match & in over 8 years, the two have grown inseparable. Thru Muddy's hip surgery & later cruciate repair, his JRT stayed by his side. They're now in their senior years but in good health & enjoying life.
